Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos made Live! viewers melt with their chemistry
After a slew of new friends making sometimes-awkward, sometimes-fun appearances as Kelly Ripa's co-hosts on Live!, it's a relief for fans — and probably for her — to share the stage with her husband, Mark Consuelos. The couple is celebrating 20 years of marriage, and as fans pointed out on Twitter, their chemistry alone was enough to make the show worth watching. Fortunately, they're also funny.
Unlike her jokey flirtation with Fred Savage or her palling around with Andy Cohen, Consuelos and Ripa shared the kinds of family memories — hello, extremely relatable driving mishaps — that only a long-married couple could have. Fans are clearly deeming them couple goals, with comments that they're "seriously the cutest couple ever ever ever" and even comparing them to Lucille Ball and Ricky Ricardo.
It's doubtful that Consuelos will land in the host's chair full-time, but it's always worthwhile to remember what Ripa is capable of with a host she's happy and comfortable with by her side. And for fans who watch her every day, it's nice to know that her home life is a blast. We'll say it first: Bring back Mark!
