Saturday Morning Man: Mark Consuelos!
We don’t see Mark Consuelos every day on Live with Regis & Kelly but we feel like we know him pretty well.
That’s because the hunky actor’s wife, Kelly Ripa, talks about her life with Mark and their three kids so much. It seems like a happy family and whenever Mark subs fior Regis Philbin, the chemistry between these two former All My Children co-stars is so apparent.
Mark was paying Mateo Santos on All My Children in 1995 when he met Kelly who played Haley on the show. Their characters became involved on-screen and a real-life romance had also developed. They eloped in Las Vegas in 1996.
The couple left the show in 2002. While Kelly does her morning gig, Mark appeared in the films The Great Raid and My Super Ex-Girlfriend and did guest stints on the Lifetime series Missing and on ABC’s Ugly Betty and appeared on Third Watch, Friends, American Family and on Ripa’s sitcom Hope & Faith.
He has an eclectic group of famous friends: It was Mark who performed the wedding ceremony of Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky and it as he and Kelly who helped Neil Patrick Harris throw a surprise 35th birthday party for Neil’s partner David Burtka earlier this year.
