After counting down the days until their reunion, Kelly Ripa has gone missing in action amid Mark Consuelos‘s return home. The “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host went radio silent on Friday, December 4, keeping her fans in the dark about seeing her husband again after being apart since August. The blonde bombshell took two days off of her morning show to prepare for Mark Consuelos’s arrival and kept her fans up to date on her countdown for “daddy arrival time.”
That all changed on the day the beautiful duo was expected to reunite. Kelly Ripa abruptly stopped posting her countdown on her Instagram Story. She was also spotted walking the streets of New York City all by herself on Friday.
After hilariously explaining to her “LIVE” co-host Ryan Seacrest she was working hard to transform from “Winter Kelly” into “Summer Kelly” before Mark Consuelos’s return, Kelly Ripa hit the city in a “Nightmare” outfit just hours before her husband’s highly-anticipated arrival.
Mark Consuelos joined in on his wife’s excitement and had been reposting her cute countdown pictures all week long. He too went MIA on social media yesterday and hasn’t been heard from since. Kelly Ripa did quietly make a brief return late last night. After revealing Mark Consuelos was expected to arrive late Friday morning, it appears plans had changed.
Kelly Ripa took to her Instagram Story around 9 PM to post another throwback of her with Mark and wrote, “T minus a little longer.”
The beloved morning show host and her actor husband have been separated by distance for four months. While Mark Consuelos left to film season five of his hit CW series, “Riverdale” in Vancouver, Canada, Kelly Ripa stayed behind in New York City for her daily “LIVE” show. The two even spent the recent holiday apart.
As The Blast reported, Kelly Ripa cooked a turkey feast for Thanksgiving dinner. She was joined by the couple’s three kids — Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 17.
Mark Consuelos celebrated with his “Riverdale” cast and crew. Kelly Ripa has been so excited to reunite with her husband that she even seductively sprawled out on her “LIVE” desk to show she was ready for “daddy arrival time.” The star, who’s never one to hold back, has kept their relationship spicy despite the distance.
According to their daughter, Lola, Kelly Ripa shares a little too much. Like that time she addressed her husband’s penis size. What a lucky lady!
