What a way to Mark their milestone.
Kelly Ripa celebrated her 27th wedding anniversary with Mark Consuelos by sharing a throwback photo of the couple kissing.
“Love of my life,” Ripa, 52, captioned the PDA-packed pic posted to her Instagram Story Monday.
The “Live” co-host also shared a second photo of her and Consuelos laughing together, captioning the snap, “Happy anniversary.”
And another image she shared showed the pair posing in front of a sculpture that spelled the word “Love.” She captioned the post, “27 years!”
Consuelos, 52, also celebrated their decades-long love, reposting his wife’s sweet photos to his own Instagram Story.
Ripa and Consuelos, who are no strangers to flaunting their love for each other, got married in 1996 and share three children: Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 20.
But she and the actor are more than just husband and wife. Ripa announced in February that Consuelos would be taking over for Ryan Seacrest, 48, as her “Live” co-host.
And Page Six exclusively reported that ABC bosses had been trying to convince Consuelos to come on board since last summer.
But the couple was hit with major criticism in April when their first episode of “Live with Kelly and Mark” premiered, with viewers calling the episode boring and “brutal.”
Both Consuelos and Ripa continued to get dragged for their co-hosting chemistry, so much so that the haters have been really getting to them.
A “Live” production source exclusively told the Post last month that Ripa and Consuelos were finding the complaints “irritating.”
“Kelly’s been through this before — with every new co-host!” the production source shared. “If it wasn’t Mark — say it was [Ripa pal] Andy Cohen — it would be the same exact story.”
But Ripa expressed how proud she was of her husband and praised his good work.
“I had no concerns about how well he was going to do, and he really proved me right,” she told Us Weekly in April. “I’m so proud of him, but I was never worried.”
The “Riverdale” alum on the other hand admitted that the show has “gone off the rails” a few times since he joined but that he’s still learning.
“If it’s great, great. If it’s not so great, we’ll try better next time. And that’s been my approach. Just kind of be in the moment,” he previously said on SiriusXM’s “The Jess Cagle Show with Julia Cunningham.”
This isn’t the first time Ripa and Consuelos have worked together. The lovebirds first fell in love after co-starring on the soap opera “All My Children” in the ‘90s.
