The pair, who have been married for 25 years, opened up about their relationship during yesterday’s episode of Live With Kelly and Ryan. The 50-year-old Riverdale actor was filling in for host Ryan Seacrest as guest co-host.
Kelly Shares Some Marriage Secrets
They were discussing the new HBO show Scenes from a Marriage, which is an adaptation of Ingar Bergmann’s 1973 Swedish TV miniseries. During the talk, the 50-year-old mother of three revealed some intimate details about her love life.
First, she noted that her relationship with her husband is much different from what the characters in the series portray. The show follows a couple, played by Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac, dealing with tension and conflict in their marriage.
Kelly shared that she and Mark are quick to resolve any issues that come their way.
“I was like, none of this would ever be happening in the Mark Consuelos household because he would have nipped all of this in the bud immediately,” she said while referring to the show’s second episode.
She continued: “He would have been like, ‘Oh, you’re upset? I know how to take care of that. Oh, you don’t feel good about something? I’ll take care of that. Oh, you’re feeling like maybe you’re overworked? I got you. I know what you need.'”
She further explained, “Because everything for Mark is settled with, everything is settled with —” before Mark cut in to add, “Love.”
How They Solve Their Problems
Kelly was quick to correct her husband, telling viewers, “Love and sexy time.”
However, the actor clarified that “not everything” can be resolved that way, until Kelly teasingly added, “Just about almost everything.”
The TV host also explained that her husband often thinks couples in TV shows or movies are going to hook up during a tense moment.
“On Riverdale, when people are getting shot and killed, the kids, like, have sex,” Mark said defensively. “That’s a human reaction.”
Kelly, on the other hand, declared, “But Riverdale, we can all agree, is one of the great CW softcore pornos ever of all time, somehow airing at 8 p.m.”
Mark laughed at her statement, then answered: “Listen, that’s how I deal with stress.”
Still In Love After 25 Years Of Marriage
The couple met on the set of the soap opera All My Children in 1995. They fell in love and married the next year.
Kelly and Mark have three beautiful children together — Michael, 24, Joaquin, 18, and Lola, 20.
After 16 years of marriage, Kelly and Mark are still going strong. Over a week ago, the TV star took to her Instagram page and posted a photo of herself and her husband at the beach.
