Kelly Ripa‘s got a pep in her step after spending all weekend with her husband Mark Consuelos. The 50-year-old “LIVE With Kelly and Ryan” host looked a little different when she hit the stage for her morning show on Monday, December 7, after taking a few days off to prepare for her man’s homecoming.
The beloved television personality radiated in a curve-hugging yellow dress for her walk-out with Ryan Seacrest and fans were quick to notice she had a little more “swagger” than usual.
In a clip shared on the morning show’s official Instagram page, Kelly Ripa beamed while sporting the mustard yellow number. Swaying her hips back and forth down the backstage hallway in sky-high stilettos, Appearing not to have a care in the world after her delightful weekend with Mark Consuelos, the star made sure to flaunt her tiny waist by adding a bright pink belt to the silky dress.
Looking like a walking goddess, Kelly Ripa’s swag went unmatched.

Adding some structure to her slender frame, Kelly Ripa’s flattering dress included some dramatic shoulder pads and hit just below her knees. In the backstage clip, Ryan Seacrest was seen leading the way and catching up with his co-star who missed Thursday and Friday of work to get ready for her reunion with Mark Consuelos.
Making way for his “LIVE” co-host by moving to the side, Kelly Ripa took control of the lit hallway and emerged as a brand new woman.
Turning the plain backstage hallway into her own personal runway, Kelly Ripa’s golden hour was cut short when the duo realized they were late to stage. “We’re on the air apparently,” Ryan Seacrest can be heard telling her. That’s when Kelly Ripa stopped her model walk and bolted to the stage.
Running like a bat out of hell while managing not to fall in her giant stilettos, the mom of three pulled it all together when it was “lights, camera, action!”
As The Blast reported, Kelly Ripa had been counting down the days until “Daddy arrival time” all week long. Keeping her fans in the loop for Mark Consuelos’s Friday morning return, they were sad when she went missing in action all weekend long. She ripped off the bandaid when she broke her social media silence, posting a snap of Mark with their three children during Sunday dinner.
The only thing that looked yummier than their homemade tamales was the couple’s 19-year-old daughter Lola Consuelos.
