Kelly Ripa unveils new tattoo tribute in honor of her 25th wedding anniversary to Mark Consuelos


Last Friday, Live! with Kelly and Ryan host Kelly Ripa unveiled a new tattoo tribute in honor of her 25th wedding anniversary to Riverdale star Mark Consuelos.

The New Jersey-born 50-year-old revealed she had ‘5.1.96’ inked on her right inner elbow while showcasing her manicure by nail/tattoo artist Asami I. 


May 1, 1996 was the date the newly-empty nesters eloped at the Chapel of the Bells in Las Vegas a year after meeting. 

Kelly and the Spanish-born 50-year-old fell in love while playing onscreen lovers Hayley and Mateo on the ABC soap opera All My Children.

Ripa’s previously got Consuelos’ surname tattooed in cursive on her left wrist in 2011.

Mark and the six-time Daytime Emmy winner are the proud parents of 23-year-old son Michael, 19-year-old daughter Lola, and 18-year-old son Joaquin.

‘What’s funny is I think of us as such a progressive as a couple. I always think of us as politically progressive,’ Kelly explained on the April 19th episode of podcast Double Date. 

And yet, when it comes to our own family and our marriage and our roles, I think of us as very traditional and almost old-fashioned in our roles.’

The Daytime Emmy nominee agreed, recalling a conversation where he said: ‘Hey listen, there’s really only room for one man in this relationship and it’s going to be me.’

On Monday, Ripa and her LIVE co-host Ryan Seacrest interviewed Andrew McCarthy about his 240-page memoir – Brat: An ’80s Story – which comes out this Tuesday.
