When Kelly Ripa playfully bent over, and Mark Consuelos stood stunned behind, social media had a field day – showcasing once again why they’re one of the most entertaining celebrity duos around.
The celebrity couple, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos, are known to be generous with their public displays of affection and their relatable family moments. Recently, Ripa posted a photo on social media that sent hearts racing, showing her bending over in a black one-piece swimsuit in front of her seemingly awestruck husband. The caption? A mischievously suggestive “When the end is in sight…”.
The striking picture, aside from its main subjects, was made even more compelling by the golden sunset in the backdrop. As the radiant sun pierced through thick clouds, Consuelos, shirtless and wearing swim trunks, seemed to be experiencing a divine epiphany as he admired Ripa’s figure, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘worshipping the sun’.
At fifty, Consuelos, famed for his role in Riverdale, looked quite the Adonis himself, confidently flaunting his toned physique and chiseled abs. Ripa, on the other hand, looked slender and radiant in her swimwear, grinning for the camera while her husband appreciated the view from behind. The luxury pool of the stunning home they were visiting served as a perfect setting for this memorable shot.
The hilarious photo not only won hearts but also triggered an avalanche of laughter among fans of the couple. Ripa, who co-hosts ‘Live With Kelly And Ryan’ with Ryan Seacrest, had fans pleading for more such candid, joyous moments from the pair. One fan wrote, “More of this from both of you, please…”
Ripa and Consuelos, who celebrated their silver jubilee anniversary in May, have become a social media sensation, their enduring relationship even inspiring spiritual sentiments. A fan echoed this sentiment, writing, “God bless Kelly & Mark… I whisper this at the end of my nightly prayers.”
The couple shares three children – sons Michael, 24, Joaquin, 18, and daughter Lola, 20. As expected, fans were excited to know Lola’s thoughts on her parents’ uproarious poolside photo. Anticipating a comment from Lola, fans wrote, “Waiting to hear what Lola says…” and “I’m here waiting for Lola’s comment.”
An amused fan summed up the anticipation saying, “Lola is going to hate this one… you two are an amazing couple!!!”
However, not everyone was equally thrilled. The Daily Mail’s coverage of Ripa’s provocative picture garnered mixed reactions worldwide. Some found the photo inappropriate, with comments ranging from, “I’m old school. So that first photo – no, keep that between husband and wife. No child would want to see that photo of their parents,” to “I have second-hand embarrassment for her.”
While some critics suggested Ripa was clinging onto her husband out of fear of losing him to a younger woman, others accused her of attention-seeking behavior. One critic noted, “Ridiculous narcissistic woman. She really will do anything for attention. Everything in her phony life is staged.”
Despite the criticism, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos continue to charm fans with their fun-filled and authentic relationship, proving that they aren’t just another celebrity couple, but a truly entertaining duo that knows how to have a good laugh together.
