Kelly Ripa who has long been the darling of daytime TV
shared a photo of herself and husband Mark Consuelos at their 1996 Vegas wedding recently, and the pic hasgone viral.
The image shows a much younger Kelly Ripa in a pink spaghetti-strap dress, hugging her new hubby in front of a sparkly backdrop. The “Live With Kelly And Michael” co-host tweeted the pic to celebrate her 17th wedding anniversary.
Kelly Ripa and Consuelos met during their days as soap opera actors
and have been together ever since, making them one of the cutest and most endearing couples in Hollywood.
“He is the person I was meant to be with forever, and I think he feels the same way,” Kelly Ripa stated
In the world of showbiz, divorces are as common as Botox and it’s not easy to name a celebrity couple who's still happily together after more than a decade and a half of marriage. Kelly Ripa and Marc Consuelos are one of the few!
The couple celebrated their 17thwedding anniversary on Wednesday and to mark the occasion, the “Live With Kelly and Michael” host posted to Twitter a pic of herself and her hubby back on the day they tied the knot.
“OMG. Here it is. 5/1/96,” Kelly Ripa, 42, wrote alongside the old shot, that showed the then-25-year-old tanned and blond bride in spaghetti straps staring into the eyes of her groom, also 25, who wore what looked like a black blazer. As for why the decor in the pic is so, er, tacky (behind them are pink valance curtains with gold trim; in front of them sits an altar with ornate ironwork), well, it’s because they got married in Vegas!
A more current shot of the expanded Ripa-Consuelos fam. (PAPSFIRST/Splash News)It was a Tuesday in 1996 when Ripa and her “All My Children” co-star and boyfriend Consuelos Kelly Ripa and Marc Consuelos discovered they didn’t just have Wednesday off, but Thursday, too. So they did what any two crazy kids in love would … they flew to Las Vegas and got hitched! “We were never engaged,” kelly Ripa revealed on her morning talk show last year. Fortunately, their plan worked! The couple has been married ever since and has three children together: Michael, 15, 11-year-old Lola, and 10-year-old Joaquin.
We’re not sure what kind of digs the newlyweds were living in back in the early days, but maybe part of the reason they’ve had such a great marriage is because they’ve gotten to wake up in this super-luxe, multi-million-dolar New York City apartment for the last eight years
Happy Anniversary To Kelly Ripa & Marc Consuelos
