Kelly Ripa & Mark Consuelos Reveal If They Would Have Dated In High School

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are reacting to their first day as co-hosts on “Live with Kelly and Mark.” “I feel great,” Mark told Access Hollywood as he walked off the set after filming his first episode as the full-time co-host Monday alongside his real-life wife, turned work wife. The 52-year-old reflected on the sound advice Kelly gave him before they took their seats on the daytime talk show. “Just be yourself. Enjoy the moment, be in the moment because that’s what this show is, especially the first 20 minutes. We had great things to talk about and just having her next to me is always just you know very reassuring,” he gushed. “He knocked it out of the park like he always does,” Kelly said. “Mark has done this so many times in the past that it just feels very normal.”
