Oh, how we love the Consuelos-Ripa family. Mark Consuelos reacted to Kelly Ripa’s dance throwback in the cutest way. The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host took to her Instagram on Thursday, July 25, to share an adorable throwback from her dance years. The picture featured Ripa with braided pigtails, bangs, a polka-dot bow and a bright smile. The snap was from Ripa’s days as a dancer and musical theatre kid in the ’70s. “#tbt the 70’s Dance 10 looks 3………👯♀️👯♂️👯♀️👯♂️👯♀️ #achorusline,” she wrote in the caption, referencing some dance terms.
Ripa’s Instagram was filled with celebrities commenting on how cute the talk-show host, now 48, looked when she was a kid. “You have always had greatness in you,” Lisa Rinna, Ripa’s fellow former soap star, wrote. Andy Cohen commented, “how have you been depriving us of this one????” while her husband’s Riverdale co-star (and on-screen wife) Marisol Nichols wrote, “Definitely would have wanted this girl to come to my sleepover.”
But the best comment on Ripa’s Instagram came from the host’s hubby, who wrote, “10.. 10… always.” The 10s could reference Ripa’s caption or it could be Consuelos calling his wife of 13 years a “10.” (We’re inclined to believe the latter.)
Ripa and Consuelos married in May 1996 after meeting on the set of All My Children (where they played love interests) a few months before, according to Woman’s Day. The couple — who eloped in Las Vegas the day — share three kids: sons Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 16, and daughter Lola, 18. The family recently celebrated Lola’s high school graduation and prom. But the most memorable story to come from the Ripa-Consuelos family in recent months is when Lola accidentally walked in on her parents having sex on her 18th birthday.
Glad to know the romance between this couple is still as hot as it was when they met 13 years ago.
