Kelly Ripa’s Intimate NYE Kiss with Husband Mark Consuelos Captured in IG Selfie

Kelly Ripa rang in the New Year with some PDA from her husband, Mark Consuelos.

The Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host, 51, recently shared a never-before-seen photo on her personal Instagram account. The selfie features Ripa and Consuelos smooching just moments after the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve.

The caption read, “#2022 is looking up! Captured a kissing selfie with my short arm. HAPPY NEW YEAR,” along with celebratory emojis.

Per usual, followers sent their well-wishes in the comments section. One person wrote, “Gaaaahhh love this [heart-eye emojis] happy new year.” Another added, “This MUST mean a positive sign for the NEW year!!!”

The New Year has brought a few changes for Ripa, who is now remotely hosting her talk show, Live with Kelly and Ryan, due to the coronavirus pandemic. The TV personality and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, recently grilled new Bachelor Clayton Echard about the brand-new season, where he tells three women he loves them.

“In the world of dating, saying ‘I love you’ to three women at the same time seems to be a bad idea,” Seacrest said. Echard explained that he never meant to fall for multiple people, saying, “It’s something that I told myself I wouldn’t do and, of course, whenever I say absolutes, they end up just coming back and kicking me in the rear.”

Perhaps Echard should take a few notes from Ripa’s marriage to Consuelos.
