TV personality Kelly Ripa and actor Mark Consuelos have been married for over 20 years, but she made a surprise confession about their trip to the altar.
On the debut episode of the “Betches‘ Comments by Celebs” podcast, Ripa shared, “Right before we got married, we broke up.”
“We broke up the week before we got married… He popped the question the day before we got married, but that day, that very day that we got back together, we were at a taping of ‘Regis and Kathie Lee,’” she revealed. “It was their Mother’s Day special. They were pre-taping it, and one of the dreams of one of the mothers was to meet Mark and me. We were her favorite characters on ‘All My Children.’ She wanted to meet us, and I think we drove out a new car or pushed out a new pool table or something. She got a present from her kids and we brought it out to her. It all is so connected.”
Ripa revealed that she and Mark “eloped” in Las Vegas in 1996.
