Kelly Ripa Pokes Fun at Mark Consuelos in New Instagram Post (and He Fires Right Back in the Comments)

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos love to send flirty messages to each other on Instagram, but when they're not filling our feeds with PDA, the two also love to poke fun at one another on social media.

Ripa teased her husband with her latest Instagram post, where the couple are seen standing side-by-side and Consuelos expectantly reaches his hand out to hold Ripa's. However, the Live with Kelly and Ryan host keeps her arms by her side because they're too short to reach Consuelos's hands.

In her caption, Ripa wrote, “Almost completely compatible,” with knife and sword emojis pointing toward each other (seemingly representing their respective hands).

Of course, Consuelos was quick to respond in the comments, where he typed a series of laughing emojis and heart-eyed emojis, and wrote, “Can't have everything.”

Fans thought the photo was quite comical, with one person commenting, “Guess no holding hands,” along with a laughing emoji. Another wrote, “Love you two together!!” In one sweet (and potentially saucy) response, a user said, “I’m sure you line up where it counts!”

This wasn't the first time the Live host joked with her husband on Instagram this past week. A few days back, Ripa posted a pic she took of her husband, where her silhouette was seen reflected on the wall beside him in shadow. In her caption, she jokingly wrote, “"Happy 4th from @instasuelos and The Shadow.”

When Consuelos commented three heart emojis (as he often does on Ripa's posts), the Generation Gap host replied, “@instasuelos babe, you have to come up with something new besides the three hearts.”

These two never fail to keep us smililng.
