Is it us, or is Kelly Ripa looking a little different these days? 

Ripa and her hubby Mark Consuelos (a "relationship goals" kind of couple if there ever was one) sent out their annual family holiday card, but there was oddly a new cast of characters on the front. 

Instead of featuring Consuelos with his family, they went another route. 

In case you somehow forgot, Kelly Ripa looks like this:

Which means she's not in the picture at all. Consuelos's Riverdale daughter and wife, Camila Mendes and Marisol Nichols, unexpectedly stepped in to take Consuelos's actual family's place in a cute reference to the show, and everyone was in on the joke.

"From our family to yours," the card reads, with an added, "(No actual wives or children were used in this photo)" in case someone didn't get the memo.

But what about Kelly? She and Consuelos's real children, 21-year-old Michael, 17-year-old Lola, and 15-year-old Joaquin, posed happily alongside their dad on the back side of the card.

"Tired of fighting with the kids over the holiday card photo?" Ripa wrote on Instagram. "Problem solved!"

That's certainly one way to do it. We'll just say this — their family wins "Best Holiday Card," this year, hands down.
