Kelly Ripa‘s Cinco de Mayo update landed on her Instagram right on time today. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host had resorted to her signature throwback – with the photo dating back to 2018, though, it wasn’t too much of a trip down memory lane as the 49-year-old smooched hunky husband Mark Consuelos.
Kelly is fresh from celebrating 24 years of marriage to the “Riverdale” star. The two eloped back in 1996 after meeting on the set of “All My Children.” Clearly, the blonde has kept the fire alive. She’s also stayed ripped, per her stunning swimsuit body.
Keep scrolling for Kelly’s insane workouts – likely the reason why this former ballerina and gym junkie stays so minuscule. Kelly’s photo was romantic as they come. It showed the blonde on Bahamas beach shores and backed by ocean horizons as she kissed 48-year-old Mark on the lips – the star has made headlines this year for disgusting 18-year-old daughter Lola Grace with her NSFW daddy flirting on Instagram.
Kelly was looking beyond ripped. Her black-and-white patterned swimsuit showcased sculpted shoulders, very low body fat, and torso muscles from the star who has personally admitted to being “small chested.”
The one downside of being a star known for having a razor-sharp wit – it attracts fans with the same penchant. Kelly had captioned her photo, writing:
“Call me crazy but i like #cincodemayo 2018 way better.”
A comment quickly gaining likes came from actor Skeet Ulrich: “He really was a better kisser in 2018…oh well ??♂️.”
“Lmao,” a fan replied.
Mark himself left his wife three red-heart emoji, with Kelly’s personal trainer Anna Kaiser quickly swooping in – “Gorg!! I want to be there!! (And armssssss ?),” she wrote.
Kelly’s Instagram packs a punch. The star has posted a thirst trap photo of husband Mark sunbathing in a pool to give Instagram “something to look at other than hand sanitizer.” She’s also known for the throwbacks that have included her days on “Hope & Faith.” Likewise, for the old-school photos showing sons Joaquin and Michael, plus daughter Lola – 2019 saw Kelly joke that the walls had “gotten smaller” as she shared comparison vacation snaps of her husband and kids by the same European wall setting.
Kelly has opened up on her marriage to Mark.
“You’re going to fight, you’re going to have disagreements. Relationships, marriages are not sprints, it’s a marathon,” she said in January, adding:
“There’s going to be like, mile 24, when you’re like, I quit. But you just got to push through. Just push through. There’s really nothing that’s that insurmountable, besides abuse or things of that nature. You’re going to fight. You’re going to have disagreements. You’re going to fundamentally not agree on things.”
