Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos are totally, completely into each other

Mark Consuelos gushed over wife Kelly Ripa on Watch What Happens: Live yesterday and gave us all hope for celeb marriages again.

The adorable duo has been together now for 20 years, and despite the terrible track record for Hollywood marriages, Consuelos and Ripa might just be the exception to the rule.

Consuelos told host Andy Cohen, “We keep it going! I’m bananas over my wife.”

He added that they still “really dig each other” and Cohen, who is a family friend of the couple, even confided that he knows Ripa and Consuelos have a “very active sex life.”

The two met back in 1995 on the set of All My Children. Ripa and Consuelos didn’t wait long before eloping to Las Vegas just a little over a year later. Since then, the couple has had three children together, Michael Joseph Consuelos, 19, Lola Grace Consuelos, 15, and Joaquin Antonio Consuelos, 13.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Ripa explained that the family strives to stay close and spend time together. They even have family dinner together every night. “My husband had dinner as a family every night growing up and he was like, ‘We are having family dinner every night, no matter what,’” Ripa explained, “And we do that. It means so much to the kids; it means so much to me. Does it always go as planned? Of course not.”

While Ripa’s found her husband and personal soul mate, she’s still searching for the perfect fit for her Live! co-host after Michael Strahan left the show last May. Personally, I think Ripa is doing just fine on her own when it comes to her business. Why does she need to find another perfect match when she’s already clearly got it?
