Kelly Ripa, 52, and Mark Consuelos, 52, give small glimpses into their life while hosting Live with Kelly and Mark, but we've never seen a peek into their past quite like this. In a new Instagram video, Consuelos takes viewers on a tour of the first apartment that he and Ripa ever shared.

“Down memory lane in NYC with Daddy Cool @instasuelos,” Ripa wrote in her caption.

In the clip, the Riverdale actor brings viewers to the Upper West Side, where he and Ripa lived after meeting on the set of their daytime soap opera All My Children.

“Now, we had this apartment when we were first married and Kelly was pregnant with Michael,” Consuelos says in the video. He also notes a few things that he had added to the apartment (like a washer/dryer combo and a satellite dish), which are still there.

Ripa and Consuelos have known each other since they met on the set of All Mu Children in 1995. A year later, the couple eloped in May 1996. Since then, they have welcomed three children—Michael, 26, Lola, 22, and Joaquin, 20.

After living in that first apartment, the couple have remained in New York City, where they currently reside in a five-story brownstone. According to The Sun, Ripa and Consuelos bought their lavish NYC residence in 2013 for a whopping $27 million. The Upper East Side space includes 19 rooms, as well as a garden, a library and more.

In addition to this brownstone, the pair also share a Hamptons house, which is estimated to cost around $5 million.

Thank you for this trip down memory lane, Kelly and Mark.
