When you’ve been married since 1996, you get to call OG. Kelly Ripa today updated her Instagram with a stunning date snap of herself and “Riverdale” actor husband Mark Consuelos. The 50-year-old talk show queen, this year seeing 19-year-old daughter Lola Grace “disgusted” by the thirst trap photos she posts of Mark, proved that love wins, and her 2.8 million followers are gushing. Kelly’s Friday photo, a throwback to 2014, also brought bare shoulders and a beautiful necklace. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Kelly and Mark seem living proof that the stereotypical “short shelf life” Hollywood marriage doesn’t happen to all of the industry. The two, who eloped back in 1996 after meeting on the set of “All My Children,” are now the symbol of #MakingItLast in Hollywood.
The photo showed Kelly and Mark posing together at a dinner table and with wine glasses. Kelly, cocking her head and resting it on Mark’s shoulder, wore a stunning strapless silver dress, plus an attractive pearl necklace.
Kelly, who tends to keep her captions short and sweet, wrote: “#fbf 2014. Friday night lights,” then thanking a friend for the photo.
Quick to comment with a “#MOMMYANDDADDY” was “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna. The 57-year-old was likely throwing in “daddy” as the slightly NSFW moniker Kelly regularly uses to flirt with her husband on IG.
“You two are so damn adorable. my all time favorite couple ❤️❤️ god bless you both,” another wrote. Scroll for Kelly opening up on her sex life after the photo.
In April, Kelly opened up to TV personality Andy Cohen about her marriage, something she’s compared to a “marathon” in the past. The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host revealed it’s spicy stuff between the sheets.
“We learned each other well and with that comes a certain level of comfort, and competence, and experimentation and just fun. We have fun. We enjoy it,” she said. “We found each other at the right time in our lives,” she added. Scroll for more photos.
And he wouldn’t be wrong. On October 2, Kelly made headlines for ringing in her 50th birthday. The blonde offered fans a peek at her $27 million NYC townhouse on the big day, with footage showing her hallway filled with a giant floral and candles display, plus gifts.
Missing the birthday in person, was Mark. He was some 3,000 miles away shooting CW series “Riverdale” in Vancouver. The hunk did, however, take to Instagram to mark his wife’s birthday, even calling her “sexy.”
