Ever wonder how celebrities keep their marriages hot? If you're Kelly Ripa, you get down and dirty with husband Mark Consuelos as often as possible!

On Monday, the co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael appeared on Bravo's late-night talk show Watch What Happens Live, where host Andy Cohen got right down to business — marriage business, that is. He wasted no time asking Ripa to confirm stories that she and her actor husband do, in fact, have sex as often as possible to keep their relationship sizzling, not fizzling.

"I believe I said that to you," Ripa replied to Cohen. "I fundamentally believe that the more you do it, the more you do it. The less you do it, the less you do it."

Ripa and Consuelos have been happily married for 18 years, so she must be on to something. The couple met on the set of All My Children, and tied the knot two years later; they now have three children.

Ripa was also recently in the spotlight for accidentally sending a sext, complete with a half-naked selfie, to her in-laws rather than to Consuelos.

"I sent him a cute, adorable butt selfie in my underpants," she told Cohen. "It's the only time I've ever sent a semi-nude anything, ever!"

Luckily, Ripa clearly has awesome in-laws, because they replied to tell her what a great figure she has! We're sure a lot of brides are wishing their in-laws were that cool right about now.

As for her long-lasting union, she had one other thing to say to Cohen. "There's no secret! We just like each other a lot. I really ... love my husband," she said. "I think he's awesome. We've been together a long time and we try to do spicy things together all the time."
