Kelly Ripa Has a Surprise Co-Host on ‘Live’ Today

Though Ryan Seacrest was completely MIA on Live with Kelly and Ryan today, Kelly Ripa was joined by a special guest co-host fans know and love.

That’s right, the morning show host was accompanied by her husband, Mark Consuelos, on today's episode. In a short clip posted to Live’s official Instagram page, the couple walked out hand-in-hand, shortly after announcer Deja Vu welcomed them to the stage. Before taking their seats, the pair did a shimmy dance in front of the audience.

Ripa rocked a blue-and-white polka dot dress with a pair of white stiletto heels. The All My Children actress decided to deviate from her classic middle part. Instead, she opted for a side part for today’s hairstyle.

Meanwhile, Consuelos looked quite dapper in a navy blue suit jacket with a light blue buttoned-down shirt. He paired the outfit with a pair of jeans and tan-colored loafers.

Fans were delighted to see the Riverdale alum guest-hosting on the show today. “I thoroughly enjoy the show when you & Mark are co-hosting [heart eye emoji],” one person wrote in the comments section. Another added, “Love it when Mark is co-hosting, they are adorable,” alongside a smiley face.

This isn't the first time that Consuelos has served as a guest host. Back in March, the 51-year-old actor stepped in for Seacrest. The married couple was not shy about showing off their impressive salsa moves, which were met with loud applause from viewers.

We love seeing Mark on the show!
