Kelly Ripa is the latest family member in the Consuelos gang to join the cast of Riverdale!

On Tuesday, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host, 48, revealed to her followers that she would be starring alongside her husband Mark Consuelos on the CW drama, playing his character Hiram Lodge’s mistress.

“It’s a family affair,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a dimly-lit photo of herself in black and gold sparkly V-neck mini dress and black stilettos. In the sexy shot, Ripa sits crossed-legged in the big leather armchair and holds a whip in her hands.

“Hiram’s mistress. 23 years of auditioning for a role i was born to play,” she joked. “Coming soon to the @thecwriverdale”

Ripa’s character, Mrs. Mulwray, is said to be described as “Confident and tough… she’s a beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized,” Entertainment Tonight reported.

Consuelos, 47, joined the CW’s take on the Archie comics in season 2 as mobster Hiram, the scheming father of Veronica Lodge.

At the time, Ripa said the couple’s kids, Michael, 21, Lola, 17, and Joaquin, 15 loved watching their dad on the show, even if he wasn’t like his character in real life.
