Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Have Very Specific Plans for Their Anniversary
The day also marks a special milestone for Ripa and her LIVE co-host Ryan Seacrest.
Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos don’t need an excuse to gush about their relationship on social media, but their 24th anniversary is certainly a good one.
For Ripa, May 1 marks not only 24 years of marriage to Consuelos, but 3 years of co-hosting alongside her Live with Kelly and Ryan partner Ryan Seacrest. Ripa shared a “thrupple” post to honor the two special men in her life.
Of course, Ripa also dedicated a separate video montage to her husband. “Happy Anniversary to the love of my life, or at least half my life @instasuelos cheers to 24 years!” Ripa wrote. Consuelos commented, “I love you Kelly de Consuelos.”
Consuelos shared a tribute to Ripa as well, posting a photo of Ripa’s hand resting on his arm. “Making a life, sharing a history, holding you close for 24 years. I love you @kellyripa," the Riverdale star wrote. “Those arms,” Ripa responded, “thank you for the TLC for all these years.”
Consuelos made an appearance on his wife’s talk show, too, revealing how he and Ripa would spend their special day. The actor called Ripa “my audiobook reader,” joking that she’d probably end up reading him the news.
“I read him the news because he immediately falls asleep if he has to do it," Ripa explained. "So I read him the news and he gets all fired up.” That’s what you do for your spouse when you’ve been married for (as Ripa will tell you) “79 years.”
Kidding aside, Consuelos said he and Ripa would be spending their anniversary with their kids — Michael, 22, Lola, 18, and Joaquin, 17 — with whom they’ve been self-isolating in N.Y.C. "We’ll be spending [today] like the rest of the [days we've been inside], having dinner with the family which will be really, really nice," he said.
