You may recognize Latino hunk Mark Consuelos from his recurring roles on American Horror Story and Riverdale, but did you know he is married to Live With Kelly And Ryan's Kelly Ripa? They have been married for almost 25 years! That's an eternity in Hollywood years.

Kelly Ripa and her husband actor Mark Consuelos arrive for the 91st Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood, California on February 24, 2019. 

From On-Screen Romance To Real Life Love Story

The gorgeous couple first met when Mark was auditioning to play Kelly Ripa's characters' love interest on the hit show All My Children and ever since then, the two have been inseparable. Their characters on the show dated and they dated secretly in real life. They married just a few months later on May 1st, 1996 in Las Vegas!

Their characters in All My Children married too and the pair continued to work together on the show for 6 years until Kelly went to replace Kathie Lee Gifford on Live! With Regis and Kelly. Mark and Kelly had 3 children, Michael Joseph in 1997, Lola Grace in 2003 and Joaquin Antonio in 2007.

"We really dig each other," Mark sweetly said when asked about their long marriage.
