You Won't Believe What Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos Did on TV!


If you already think that Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are one of the cutest, rock-solid couples in Hollywood, then consider this ironclad proof. Ripa's husband of 19 years has been co-hosting Live! With Kelly and Michael, and yesterday, he made a case as for why he's a strong co-host and husband.

The Alpha House actor was challenged to participate in Michelle Obama's #GimmeFive challenge, which is part of First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! initiative. #GimmeFive asks people to show five ways they lead a healthy life, so naturally, Consuelos enlisted his super-fit wife to fulfill the challenge.

How'd he do it? He bench-pressed Ripa an impressive five times! We don't know what's more amazing — that he did it without seemingly breaking a sweat, or that she obliged even though she was wearing a pencil skirt. Perhaps it looked so easy because it's is a common occurrence in their household? Regardless, it's safe to say that he completed the task!

It's been a pretty great week for these parents of three. While co-hosting the show, Consuelos revealed the amazing birthday present Ripa gave him — an engraved bench in Central Park.

"[It reads] 'Daddy Cool, est. March 30, 1971.'" That's what she calls me. It's so nice. That's the best gift I've ever received," he said, before telling his wife, "By far, you're the most thoughtful, the best gift giver all the time!"

Cutest couple ever? Yeah, we definitely think so!
