Mark Consuelos Shares Never-Before-Seen Pics of His (Makeup-Free) Wife, Kelly Ripa

When we step out in public without makeup, we try (and usually fail) to avoid running into any familiar faces. The same rule doesn’t apply to Kelly Ripa, who looks fab even without her Live with Kelly and Ryan glam squad. (Go figure.)

Yesterday, Mark Consuelos shared not one, but two never-before-seen photos on his Instagram account (@instasuelos), which offer a rare glimpse into the couple’s personal life.

The slideshow begins with a selfie that features makeup-free Ripa wrapping her arms around the actor’s neck. The post concludes with another picture of the couple posing for the camera.

It’s unclear if the photos were taken on the same night. However, based on Consuelos’s caption, we believe they’re throwbacks from a family vacation.

He captioned the post, “1 month down…3 to go…missing my home team.” Consuelos is referring to Ripa and their three children: Michael (23), Lola (19) and Joaquin (17). The actor is currently quarantining in Vancouver, Canada, while he films Riverdale season five.

It’s a pretty big change for the couple, especially since the All My Children alum was co-hosting virtual segments of Live from her own home due to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, viewers could occasionally spot her family (including Consuelos) in the background.

Guess these family photos will have to hold us—er, we mean, Consuelos—over until he returns to Ripa’s New York City residence.
