Kelly Ripa may be flattered that Justin Bieber admitted he was crushing hard on the morning talk show host, but she's also a bit weary.

During today's Live With Michael and Kelly, the bubbly co-host broke her silence on the Biebs' Instagram homage to her earlier this week.

"Justin, I love you, you know that I've taken my daughter to 400 Justin Bieber concerts," she began by explaining to the audience.

"I do believe this is a cry for help. I'm worried about him."

And right as she cracked the joke, Michael Strahan nearly choked on the water he was sipping on.

"Are you OK?" Ripa asked, "Did you just throw up?"

Strahan replied, "I just spit up a little bit because that was not what I was expecting to hear."

Ripa, meanwhile, continued with a heartfelt message to the singer, telling the camera, "If you need me, I am here and you can call me and we will work it out. We see each other, we'll work it out!"

Her co-host suggested that Bieber stop by the New York City studio next time he's in town and she joked, "You can see all these curves in person, OK?"

But all jokes aside, Strahan—and the rest of us—wanted to know what Mark Consuelos thought of the public display.

"Marc literally said, 'Where did they find that picture?'" Ripa dished. "And I said, 'A dentist's office from 1980.'"

She concluded, "Thank you Justin, though, you really gave me tremendous street cred with my daughter."
