Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Celebrate 22nd Wedding Anniversary With Flashback Photos of When They Eloped

By

Kelly Ripa has lots to celebrate! 

The daytime host and her husband, Mark Consuelos, are blissfully celebrating 22 years of marriage. The couple eloped in Las Vegas on May 1, 1996, and the two took to Instagram to share amazing pictures of their long-lasting marriage. Ripa posted a sweet montage video, including pics of their Vegas nuptials. In the images, Ripa is wearing a little black dress while Consuelos sports a suit, as they pose outside Chapel of the Bells wedding chapel and cut the cake together. 

"Feliz Aniversario lover!" she wrote. "22 years. You’re a human roller coaster that I’m tall enough to ride. @instasuelos."

Meanwhile, Consuelos' first photo was from their honeymoon in Capri, Italy, and the Riverdale actor joked that the two aren't actually allowed back at the hotel.

"5-1-96...happy 22nd anniversary Boo.. seems like yesterday to me," Consuelos captioned the priceless throwback photos. "I’m sure it feels a lot longer to you...(honeymoon photo Capri, Italy ... we’re still banned from that hotel... it was worth it)."

Interestingly enough, Tuesday also marked Ripa's one-year co-hosting anniversary with Ryan Seacrest on Live With Kelly and Ryan. Ripa joked that she actually gets Consuelos and Seacrest the same gifts, and Consuelos also hilariously FaceTimed Seacrest in the middle of the show to wish the duo happy co-hosting anniversary.

Seacrest later Instagrammed about the milestone, sharing a video he took last year of himself sneaking into the ABC building for the first day of filming Live With Kelly and Ryan. At the time, Seacrest landing the high profile co-hosting gig after Michael Strahan departed for Good Morning America was still a secret.

"A year ago today I was sneaking into the abc building for day 1 of LWKR," he wrote. "Time flies - happy anniversary @kellyripa! #kellyandryan."

Ripa and Consuelos share three kids together -- Joaquin, 15, Lola, 16, and Michael, 20. They met while co-starring on the ABC soap opera All My Children.

In September 2016, Consuelos shared the secret to their marriage during his appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

"We really dig each other," Consuelos said simply. "I'm really crazy about her. ... I'm bananas over my wife."
