Next Great Baker guest star, Kelly Ripa, and husband Mark Consuelos celebrated their 17-year wedding anniversary on Wednesday, May 1. And to mark the occasion, she reminisced by posting a 1996 wedding on Twitter. Keep reading for more details.
According to omg!, Kelly and Mark were co-stars on “All My Children” in 1996. They were young and in love and one week, they discovered they had a Wednesday and a Thursday off work so they threw caution to the wind and headed to Las Vegas where they tied the knot!
Just last year, Kelly revealed she and Mark were never engaged. They were dating and simply saw an opportunity and seized it. And unlike many spontaneous Vegas marriages that crumble and fall apart sometime later, for them, it just happened to work out and they’ve been together ever since.
On the day of their wedding anniversary, they both took to Twitter to exchange sweet messages. “Happy 17th anniversary to my boo @KellyRipa,” Mark wrote. And Kelly was quick to respond by posting a photo of their 1996 Vegas wedding along with the caption, “I love you @MarkConsuelos happy anniversary! 17 years feels like 17 days.”
But those 17 years haven’t been without incident. In a recent interview with People, Kelly detailed her biggest pet peeve about Mark. “I am openly hostile when Mark leaves the toilet seat up,” she said, “[he] never puts the toilet seat back down and it irritates me…we still fight about it.” Typical man, right?
Toilet seat aside, Kelly dearly loves Mark and said he’s the person she was meant to be with forever and he feels the same way about her too.
Kelly and Mark live in New York City with their three children, Michael, 15, Lola, 11, and Joaquin, 10.
