was slammed on social media, after her husband Mark Consuelos
posted a picture of her in a bikini to Instagram on Sunday, with a caption that deemed his wife “the sexy one.”
Unfortunately some social media user begged to differ. "Kelly's gorgeous, but isn't there a cutoff age where age appropriateness comes into play? Just because you can rock a bikini, doesn't mean you should," one Instagram user commented.
Another wrote: "She has the body of a 12 year old boy. Guess 'sexy' is a matter of opinion- She is adorable- but...”
Initially Mark took the high road, opting not to respond to the haters, but after some thought decided to defend his wife in a lengthy post.

“I wanted to take a couple of days to weigh in. Probably should’ve earlier arguably. But I wanted to be above it. Well, now I’m not. I posted this pic of the women I most admire,” mark wrote in the comments of the post.
“As a playful tribute to my wife who I’m proud of in endless ways. She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come.”
Concluding, “If that offends you in some way, if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you’re suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it. To all the males that had something negative to say. I suggest you bring it up with me if ever I’m lucky enough to run into you. I’m going to get back to my vacation now… Thanks for allowing me to express myself.”
