Watch Kelly Ripa Explain Her 'Belfie' Mishap on The Late Show

Sep 25, 2014

Kelly Ripa said this was the first time she had sent a semi-nude photograph of herself. Unluckily for her, her first attempt ended up in the wrong hands.

Ripa told David Letterman on The Late Show Wednesday that she accidentally sent a selfie of her butt (also called a 'belfie') in her underwear to her in-laws. She had meant to send it to her husband, Mark Consuelos.

Her in-laws responded with "you look great, may God continue to bless you."
