It’s no secret that most Hollywood marriages don’t last, but Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos seem to have found the formula for a successful marriage in the entertainment industry. After over two decades of wedded bliss, the couple appears to still be crazy in love, and they aren’t afraid to share their feelings with their fans on social media.
According to E! News, Consuelos recently posted a pic on Instagram of his 47-year-old wife wearing a skimpy bikini while wading in the ocean, and he captioned it with, “Sultry Sundays with the sexy one are my fave.”

In response, Ripa liked the photo, and then posted one on her own page of a shirtless Consuelos in the water.
She also posted a Consuelos selfie of him lounging on a beach chair with the hashtag “#daddy.”
The popular celebrity couple got married over 21 years ago and have three children together – Michael, 20, Lola, 16, and Joaquin, 15.
Ripa and Consuelos also have each other’s backs when they become victims of internet trolls. Earlier this month a troll went after Consuelos by commenting on a photo on Ripa’s Instagram, writing that it is too bad he is so short and tries to look taller. The troll added that it looks funny and he should just be who he is.
The co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan immediately clapped back that Consuelos was “tall where it counts.” The Riverdale star then asked the troll how to get taller because he is dying to know.
Ripa once revealed on the Wendy Williams Show that she loves to clap back. She says she loves trolls, but she also loves to troll a troll. So, if someone trolls her, she will troll back because that is the way God intended.
As for her relationship, Ripa seems to still be in the honeymoon phase with Consuelos, and they love sharing steamy pics of their time together in the tropics.
The two met back in the 1990s when they played love interests on the ABC soap opera All My Children, and she revealed that because Mark Consuelos was an alpha male, that drew her to him, but she didn’t think she would be drawn to that. She concluded, “I just worship him.”
