Mark Consuelos Excitedly Announces That He Will Join Kelly Ripa on Her Book Tour

It looks like Kelly Ripa will have some company as she embarks on a book tour to promote her new memoir, Live Wire. While her husband, Mark Consuelos, has visited her at her workplace in the past, now he will be joining her for one of the legs of her new tour.

Consuelos posted the news to his account, where he said, “Honored and extremely proud to be joining my fave @kellyripa in NJ for her #LiveWire Book Tour!”

In the photo, the Riverdale actor is seen smiling as he stands next to Ripa, and the text reads, “Live Wire tour with special guest Mark Consuelos.”

Ripa recently announced the tour on her Instagram, where she said, “Equal parts thrilled and nervous to announce my book tour for LIVE WIRE! this fall. A BOOK TOUR! Imagine that. I’ll be joined by some riveting, not to mention sexy guests so head to the link in bio to learn more. Tickets go on sale Friday. Can’t wait to see you.”

While at first we didn't know who the special guests were, we had a feeling that Consuelos might make an appearance at one of the stops. Now, we know that Ripa will be joined by her husband, as well as Anderson Cooper and Bethenny Frankel.

The talk show host will be heading to the Count Basie Center for the Arts in Red Bank, New Jersey on September 28, where she will be joined by Consuelos. She will then stop at the Symphony Space in New York City on September 29 with Cooper, followed by a visit to the Theatre at Westbury in Long Island on September 30 with Frankel.

Don't mind us while we go nab our tickets.
