Los Angeles - Kelly Ripa is "worried" about Justin Bieber.

The 44-year-old chat show host believes the Where Are U Now hitmaker's recent declaration that he has a "big crush" on her "is a cry for help."

The 21-year-old singer posted an old black and white photograph of the Live! with Kelly and Michael host wearing a white string bikini while lying on a bed on his Instagram profile on Tuesday, with the caption: "Wow Kelly makes me feel some type of way no disrespect I know she's married! #bigcrush."

The blonde beauty, who has three children, Michael, 17, Lola, 14, and Joaquin, 11, with husband Mark Conseulos, did not respond to the Canadian heartthrob online, but broke her silence on her show on Wednesday.

Asked about his comments, she said: "Justin, I love you, you know that I've taken my daughter to 400 Justin Bieber concerts. [But] I do believe this is a cry for help. I'm worried about him."

She then issued a personal message to the Baby hitmaker, saying: "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!"

Asked what her husband thought of Justin's tribute, she added: "Marc literally said, 'Where did they find that picture?' And I said, 'A dentist's office from 1980.'

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