Kelly Ripa stripped down to a bikini was the talk show queen’s last leg as she hungrily awaited 49-year-old husband Mark Consuelos’ final return home yesterday. The 50-year-old “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host hasn’t seen her 1996-married husband in months, with Mark some 3,000 miles away in Vancouver, Canada to shoot the CW “Riverdale” series he stars on. Kelly, whose 2.8 million Instagram followers have been watching her literally counting down the days until Mark’s return, got the latest throwback last night. Check it out below.
Scroll for the bikini action. Kelly, who shares her $27 million NYC townhouse with Mark and Thursday marked a “T minus 1” as the final day of waiting landed, uploaded a quick selfie of herself and Mark from days gone by, with the snap getting a “LIT” and fire emoji as Kelly shouted out her hubby’s @instasuelos Instagram handle.
Kelly, who was absent from “Live!” on Thursday amid speculation she was prepping for Mark’s return, seemed in massively good spirits on the actual return day, even flipping back over the “Live!” desk.
Kelly, who met Mark on the set of “All My Chidren” and eloped with him back in 1996, has actually been opening up on how the global pandemic has strengthened the marriage more than ever.
“It was a testament that we really like each other. I’m sad not to wake up with him, it’s very sad. I will miss him, that’s all I can say,” she told fans of the syndicated talk show. Kelly and Mark are parents to 23-year-old Michael, 19-year-old Lola, and 17-year-old Joaquin.
Kelly’s photo might not have been a massive body flaunt, but the gorgeous and carefree snap showing the blonde in a blue-and-white patterned bikini top also caught a smiling Mark, him holding driftwood as the two posed on a beach.
Mark’s travels also meant Thanksgiving 2020 wasn’t able to happen as a family deal for Kelly, with the star needing to resort to FaceTime. Just before November 26, Kelly baking her famous biscuits brought Mark and the kids onto “Live!” by video chat, though. More below.
Kelly doesn’t hide that a spicy sex life is the secret to a long-lasting marriage. Earlier this year, the mom of three spoke with TV personality Andy Cohen, even revealing that an adventurous love life is up her and Mark’s alley.
“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,” the New Jersey native stated. Scroll for Kelly and Mark’s penis Instagram drama.
