Kelly Ripa is among the most recognizable female jack of all trades. The 49-year-old lovely blonde has taken roles ranging from competing on Dancing With The Stars to starring in TV soap operas like All My Children. She’s hosted talk shows online and is an avid social media presence.
Coincidentally and romantically, Ripa fell madly in love with her co-star Mark Consuelos on the set of All My Children and have been married since 1996. It was actually a surprise for many to see that after so many years the two remain incredibly fond of each other!
The most recent post that Ripa shared on her social media included a sultry throwback shot of herself and Mark on the red carpet together. The shot was from 2005 and is a perfect example of how you’d never know that they had already been together for nearly a decade when it was shot.
The pic made headlines due to a small detail that could be missed if you looked by it too quickly. A detail that Mark himself actually pointed out in the comment section of the post.
Although the focal point of the photo is the romantic kiss between the love birds, viewers couldn’t help but notice the placement of Consuelos’ hand on his wife’s tush. The shot gave a good view of Kelly’s posterior while showing off a hot pink, form-fitting dress which looks absolutely fabulous on her.
Kelly caption the post in a reminiscent tone, sharing how she’s evidently longing for another romantic kiss, and desirous to wear the same dress she wore in the picture.
During an interview with GoodHouseKeeping Kelly shared how she and Mark aren’t perfect, but they work things out in their own way. When asked about whether they have arguments she replied:
“Oh, sure. We argue about children, discipline, homework, good-cop/bad-cop. He says he’s the bad cop and I’m the good cop, but really they associate him with fun and after-school activities. They associate me with inoculations, X-rays, and stitches.”
She went on to talk about how she and Mark often talk about having more children, but they aren’t sure whether that is what they want to do on account of how busy they are with the ones they have.
“When I think about how our three got here — we didn’t actually think about it, we just did it. But now we’re grown-ups, and I think about a lot of things, not just How will I get to a soccer game outside in February with a baby?”
Despite their schedules, Ripa shared how she takes time for herself and her husband. Although at the time of the interview she stated that she was only really living on 5 hours of sleep or so, explaining how she’s a bit of an insomniac.
