We can’t believe we’re about to say this, but Kelly Ripa’s no-makeup vacation selfie with Mark Consuelos has us reconsidering our entire makeup routine and considering going bare-skinned. Yes, Ripa’s selfie is that good, and yes, it’s really worth copying in real life.
On Sunday, Ripa hopped on to her Instagram to share a sweet couples selfie that she snapped with Consuelos while they were taking a quick vacation in Mexico a week prior to posting the pic. Ripa captioned the photo, “One week ago we were warm and on the same coast for 24 hours……..i love that story,” adding in the saucy hashtags “#daddy,” “#vivamexico” and “#loscabos” to the post.
Ripa’s natural glow combined with her hubby’s smile is everything we needed on this cold winter’s day. How are they that cute?!
It seems that in between the couple’s respective work commitments, with Consuelos filming Riverdale in Vancouver and Ripa cohosting Live With Kelly and Ryan in New York City, they found time in their schedules to press the pause button and head down to Mexico for a few days. Neither has spoken further about their quick vacation, but this selfie alone makes it looks like it was a very refreshing and relaxing trip for a couple who knows how to make time to reconnect no matter how wild life gets.
Ripa recently guest-starred on Riverdale, teasing her role on Instagram before the episode aired on Wednesday. On the series, Ripa played Mrs. Mulwray, a woman who may or may not be romantically linked to Consuelos’ character, Hiram Lodge. The guest appearance marks the second time a member of the Ripa-Consuelos clan has appeared on Consuelos’ current gig. Back in 2018, Ripa and Consuelos’ oldest son, Michael, played a younger version of Consuelos’ character.
It’s so good to see Ripa and Consuelos making time for one another, as we can see from this throwback vacation selfie. If anything, it’s a reminder of why we keep rooting for this power couple and why love following them on their adventures together.
