Things got a lil’ bit personal between co-hosts Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos before they walked out and filmed Live with Kelly and Mark this morning. 

In a new video shared on the Live Instagram Story, Ripa, 52, and her hubby, 52, are getting ready backstage for the show. While waiting on the sidelines, Ripa shows some comforting PDA toward her man with a hug from behind.

Right before they make their entrance, the Live Wire author looks at the camera and jokingly says, “He’s convinced he can’t fit through the door,” and Ripa proceeds to point out the small entryway.

It’s only been a few days since Consuelos has been hosting the show after replacing former Live co-host, Ryan Seacrest. Last Friday, the Live Instagram page shared a touching farewell video, which showed Seacrest and Ripa’s first and last walk on stage together.

The caption read, “It’s been a wild ride! Thanks @ryanseacrest! Tune in now for Ryan’s last official show as co-host.”

This week, in honor of Consuelos’s debut, the couple received a surprise visit from their daughter, Lola Consuelos, 21, who came to cheer her parents on.

In a BTS snap taken by Ripa (and shared on her Instagram page), she and her husband are smiling in front of the live studio audience, and sitting in the front row is their daughter. “First day. First show. First selfie,” the caption read. “So the adventure begins!”

More PDA moments on Live, please and thank you!
