On Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Mark, morning show host Kelly Ripa, 53, detailed how she went into complete panic mode after seemingly losing her wedding ring at home. So naturally, we have so many questions.

Ripa recounted the entire incident on live television. While sitting next to her husband/co-host, Mark Consuelos, 53, the Live Wire author explained how there was a “panic at home” over the misplaced item. “I can’t find my wedding ring,” she told the audience (per Hello! Magazine), who responded with a loud gasp. “I know, I know,” she replied.

“Wait, are we on a break?” the Riverdale alum playfully asked, referencing the iconic line from Friends. “You wish,” Ripa explained, before adding, “I was moisturizing my hands, and I went to put it back on and now I can’t find it!” 

With all jokes aside, Consuelos quickly reassured his wife about the missing ring and shared she would “find it” soon. And sure enough, the missing ring was recovered and returned to Ripa.

“Breaking news! My ring has been found,” she told viewers with a smile. And you’ll never guess where it was: under a hairbrush. “In case you were wondering, it was under the hairbrush,” Ripa explained.  

After meeting on the set of the soap opera All My Children, Ripa and Consuelos ultimately tied the knot in 1996. Per Hello!, Ripa wasn’t given an engagement ring due to the couple’s decision to elope in Las Vegas. And as a result, Consuelos didn’t buy her a wedding ring until ten years later.

Phewww, that was a close one, Kelly.
