Kelly Ripa will never have trouble remembering her wedding anniversary ever again!
The “Live with Kelly and Ryan” host showed off her new tattoo on Friday, May 7. Ripa got her wedding date inked with a single needle on the inside of her forearm to celebrate her 25th anniversary. She also proudly showed off her fabulous manicure. “CLEAN MANI AND FINE LINES………” she wrote across the tattoo reveal.
Kelly married Mark Consuelos on May 1, 1996, which explains the “5.1.96” ink. They have since welcomed three kids, Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and Joaquin, 18.

This isn’t Kelly’s first tattoo. In fact, this isn’t even her first tattoo that honors her hunky hubby! We believe the new ink marks her fourth piece; she revealed that she has three other tattoos on “Live with Kelly and Regis” in 2011. One wrist, back, and on her ankle. She inked “Consuelos” across her wrist to honor Mark.
Ripa revealed that her ankle tattoo, her first one, wasn’t very well thought out. “I had two hours to kill and the limo driver said, ‘Why don’t you get a tattoo?’ I did it,” she told the LA Times. “The flower? I told the guy to do whatever he had. That was it.”
Ripa penned a sweet tribute message to her husband on her actual anniversary last week and shared a collage of all their previous anniversary pictures.
“Happy 25th Anniversary to the love of my life @instasuelos in the blink of an eye. Because when you know, you know. Thank you for all of the dreams you made reality. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ (wedding, 5,10,15,20……..#25) #silver,” Kelly wrote at the time.
The A-list couple met in 1995 after they shared an onscreen romance on “All My Children.” It’s clearly worked out for all involved parties… especially the kids!
