Bieber posted an Instagram pic of the 44-year-old Live! with Kelly and Michael host wearing nothing but a teeny bikini. "Wow Kelly makes me feel some type of way," the "Baby" singer wrote. "No disrespect I know she's married! #bigcrush"
Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos for close to 20 years, and they have three children together.
On Wednesday's Live!, Ripa joked that the compliment was payback for the thousands of dollars she spent on the numerous Bieber concerts she attended with her daughter. She also thanked him for giving her "street cred" with Lola Grace.
The daytime TV host has never looked better! Most recently, Ripa tried experimenting with colors and dyed her hair pink and then blue.
