Kelly Ripa is getting candid about what it’s really like being away from her husband, Mark Consuelos, who is currently quarantining in Canada as he films Riverdale season five.
The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 49, recently sat down for an exclusive interview with PureWow to promote her partnership with Persona Nutrition. Ripa revealed that while she can’t see her husband for another two months due to social distancing, it’s nothing compared to their typical schedules.
“We are very used to it,” she told PureWow. “We’re used to spending a great deal of time apart because he's always worked somewhere else in another state, another country. I married an actor, and I used to be an actor, so it sorta comes with the territory.”
While it’s tough to be apart, Ripa is “grateful” for the time she spent with Consuelos and their three children—Michael (23), Lola (19) and Joaquin (17)—during the coronavirus pandemic.
