Kelly Ripa just dropped one heck of a tease. The 50-year-old “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host’s Tuesday Instagram update appeared, at first glance, to be all about Christmas, but with the talk show queen still some 3,000 miles away from husband Mark Consuelos, fans knew what the caption meant. Kelly, whose 49-year-old hubby is in Vancouver, Canada to shoot CW series “Riverdale,” has been counting down the days until his return on her IG. This photo confirmed she just can’t wait for him back. Check it out below.
Scroll for the photo. Kelly, who even had to do Thanksgiving by FaceTime this year, hasn’t stopped counting down Mark’s return, with her 1996-married husband appearing in throwbacks on her social, including a tender snap of the “All My Children” alums holding hands.
Kelly’s photo, affording a sensation view of her $27 million NYC townhouse, showed 2020’s Christmas tree in all its glory. Huge window panes and the tree framed by red velvet were pictured, but it was the caption that really showed what was on Kelly’s mind.
Kelly’s 2.8 million Instagram followers got the holiday feels, like woah, plus what turned out to be some Insta-flirting as Mark quickly replied to his wife.
“Even though it’s 2020, she got dressed in her fancy red skirt and ready for the return of a certain someone……?♥️?,” Kelly had written.
Mark, 49, swooped right in with heart and kiss emoji, responding: “Can’t wait to meet her.” Not one to ignore a comment from her husband, Kelly replied: “She can’t wait.” More after the Christmas tree snap.
Kelly and Mark didn’t just miss out on spending Thanksgiving 2020 together. The couple was also apart on October 2 as Kelly rung in her 50th birthday, although kids Michael, Joaquin, and Lola were there to celebrate.
Mark, who has admitted watching “Live!” from Vancouver and recently appeared via video chat as Kelly baked her famous biscuits, wished his wife all the best on her birthday. He posted stunning, grass-set snaps of Kelly in a sundress – scroll for his “sexy” message.
Kelly got all the love in the world as she turned 50, with Mark taking to IG and writing: “Happy birthday to my little ray of sunshine ☀️ I love you, sexy.. ♥️♥️♥️”
Proof that Hollywood marriages can last is this couple. The two met on the set of “All My Children” and eloped in 1996. Earlier this year, Kelly spoke to TV personality Andy Cohen, revealing that she likes it spicy 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.”
