Ever since Mark Consuelos, 52, replaced Ryan Seacrest as co-host on Live, we've been learning a whole lot more about his personal life with Kelly Ripa, 52. And on the most recent episode, Ripa really made things spicy when she joked about the size of Consuelos's, ahem, member.

It all started as the two chatted about the reality dating series Naked Attraction. The show follows single contestants who try to find love by picking a partner based on their appearance (in the nude). While the show has been around since 2016, the first six seasons were recently uploaded to Max, which is what got the Live co-hosts talking about it in the first place.

The couple discussed that they binge-watched the show together, with Ripa noting, “With the men, it’s all there on display...” Then, the Live Wire author turned up the heat by saying to Consuelos: “I could tell you were starting to feel really good about yourself.”

Although the crowd erupted into cheers, the Riverdale actor smiled and did not respond to Ripa's comment. Instead, he kept the conversation focused on the show, and recalled: “When it was a female contestant, she was looking at the guys [and] she goes, ‘Well, that guy seems a little nervous.’ And I was like, ‘Oh man, that’s brutal.’”

Despite Consuelos’s coyness, the pair certainly aren't shy about their sex life. Back in March, Ripa used the first episode of her podcast, Let’s Talk Off Camera, to discuss how she and Consuelos kept the spark alive while they were working in different cities at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We had sexual rituals that were so ludicrous over FaceTime,” Ripa said. “I became so alarmed at my appearance over FaceTime that I started rigging the computer to hang from a ladder. I’m not kidding—I hung the computer over a ladder so that I could look up to Mark, so that he did not have to see what gravity was actually doing [to me]. You get really close to yourself in situations where you’re separated from your husband for long periods of time.”

We will always appreciate you for your candidness, Kelly.
