Live with Kelly and Ryan host Kelly Ripa is proving that she knows how to mix business with pleasure during her work trip to the Bahamas. Ripa and her co-host Ryan Seacrest left the frigid cold of New York behind and exchanged it for a week of shows and fun in the sun, and the 47-year-year old hit the beach after shooting to show off her amazing body in a tiny black bikini.
The mom of three took a stroll on the sand with a couple of friends and then went for a dip in the water after filming Live at the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas. During the episode, she interviewed Whitney Cummings, Heather Graham, and current Bachelor Arie Luyendyk.

Her two-piece bathing suit didn’t cover much of her rock-hard body, which is the result of a rigorous, daily exercise routine.
“I work out everyday. It’s part of my life. I do it more for my insides than my outside, but the outside gets a nice benefit, too. I feel like my mind is a little quieter when I exercise,” Ripa said.
Ripa has no visible body fat on her, and the TV host who loves to be super fit says that Madonna is her workout role model.
The day after her beach stroll, Seacrest and Ripa began their second show of the week from a lagoon in front of the resort while fully-clothed and riding a water tricycle.
Ripa may be having a good time with her co-host when it comes to her work, but when it comes to play, she is all about her husband, Mark Consuelos.
The two met back in 1995 when Consuelos auditioned for All My Children and Ripa, who had already played Haley Vaughn on the soap opera for five years, was his screen test partner. He ended up landing the role of Mateo Santos, who eventually became the man in Haley’s life.
Consuelos says that his main focus was getting the job, but he did notice that his future wife was extremely beautiful and very funny, intelligent, and quick.
It took a while for Haley and Mateo to get together, but before their characters fell in love, Ripa and Consuelos had already fallen hard for each other and ended up eloping to Las Vegas. Just a year after meeting each other, they got married at a chapel they found in the phone book, and thirteen months after that they welcomed their first child.
Twenty-two years later the couple has three children – Michael, Lola, and Joaquin – and Consuelos says the only time he notices stress in the relationship is when they are not together.
After leaving All My Children in 2001, they have continued to collaborate on projects together and Consuelos sometimes guests hosts with Ripa on Live. They also started their own production company Milojo, which utilizes the first two letters of each of their kid’s names.
