We hope Mark Consuelos enjoyed this early present. In honor of her hubby's 52nd birthday, Kelly Ripa, also 52, shared a special video montage to her Instagram account, which included rare photos of the Riverdale actor, from childhood snaps to present-day pics.

“Happy birthday to the love of my life @instasuelos,” the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host wrote in her caption. “Celebrating you never gets old.” She also included emojis of a heart, a party popper, a star and a flame.

The clip begins with photos that were taken during Consuelos's schoolboy days. It also features other rare snaps featuring his mom, Camilla, and his children, Michael, Lola and Joaquin.

The rest of the video shows other shots from the birthday boy's adulthood and his relationship with Ripa. We also spotted a few photos that Ripa has previously posted to her account, including one snap of Consuelos holding their eldest son, Michael, 25, on his shoulders during a trip to Italy.

The homemade video ends with more recent moments, like when Ripa and Consuelos attended the 2023 Vanity Fair Oscars Afterparty together, and a selfie they took from a beachside getaway.

In the comments, Consuelos showed his appreciation for the birthday surprise, writing, “Thanks babe!!!” Meanwhile, other celebs sent birthday wishes, like Andy Cohen, who typed a series of heart emojis, and Holly Robinson Peete, who commented: “Happy birthday 2nd fave hubby!!”

A celebratory video was also posted to the official Live Instagram account. (Consuelos will serve as co-host on the talk show, replacing Seacrest in only a matter of weeks). The caption read, “Wishing you the happiest of birthdays @instasuelos!!”

We hope it was a great one, Mark!
