It is an undoubted fact that, for many years, television has had a large number of followers around the world who consume its contents on a regular basis. This is the reason why professionals dedicated to it can enjoy high levels of popularity at an international level. One of the best known faces in this regard is Kelly Ripa. Born on October 2, 1970 in Stratford, New Jersey, she is an American actress, businesswoman and television presenter who owes part of her fame to the program 'Live with Regis and Kelly'.
It is precisely because of the relevance of her television career and the awards she has received that, over the years, we have been able to know a lot about her professional life. On the contrary, it is not so much what we know about her personal and love life. Therefore, from The Look we give you all the information you need to discover who her husband is and how they both met.
This is Kelly Ripa
In order to get into more intimate aspects of her life and talk about it, first it is important that we do a review of her early years. She is the daughter of Joseph Ripa, a bus driver, and Esther, a housewife. As a child, Kelly attended Berlin Community School and then Eastern School in Voorhees Township.
As early as her school days, she began to show an interest in acting and was part of several theatrical productions. After finishing her training, she worked as an actress in a local theater and as a dancer in the USA Network's 'Dance Party USA' program. This was Ripa's first contact with television.
Kelly Ripa's television career
In 1990, she was in charge of playing the role of Hayley Vaughan in the series 'All My Children', for which she was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award. This marked a before and after in her career and she began to receive several offers. Among them, in 2000 she received an offer from the talk show 'Live with Regis', which was renamed 'Live with Regis and Kelly', where she worked with Regis Philbin.
At the same time, Ripa was still part of 'All My Children', but two years later he left the series to devote himself entirely to the program. He has also participated in films such as 'Kim Possible', in which he lent his voice, or the comedy 'Hope & Faith', giving life to Faith Fairfield.
This is Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa's husband
Returning to more personal aspects of her life, the truth is that, with regard to love, Kelly has not given much to talk about. After several years of relationship with actor Mark Consuelos, both decided to take a step further and got married in May 1996.
As a result of the great love that the couple had and, in fact, still has for each other, they started their own family together. Today, Kelly and Mark have four children, Michael, Lola, Joaquin and Dasshan, with whom they have built an idyllically happy and united home.
