The talk show host told David Letterman she accidentally sent them a racy selfie meant for her husband, Mark Consuelos.
"I sent him a cute, adorable butt selfie in my underpants," she explained. "It's the only time I've ever sent a semi-nude anything, ever!"
Because of a snafu with the iCloud, however, Consuelos' parents, to whom she and her husband had given an iPad, intercepted the image. In response, they sent Ripa, 43, a sweet note congratulating her on her figure.
"They're like, 'Your exercise classes are really paying off and you look great. May God continue to bless you,'" she said. "Are you kidding me?!"
Ripa warned a bewildered Letterman not to make the same mistake.
"I'm a cautionary tale," she said.
