Kelly Ripa Guest Host Mark Consuelos Bench Presses His Co-Host Wife

By    |   Thursday, 02 Apr 2015 06:47 PM

Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa’s husband and guest host on “Live! With Kelly and Michael” this week, bench pressed his wife easily on the show Thursday to the cheers of the audience.

In a skirt and sweater, Ripa gripped her husband’s arm as he lifted her up and down, with no apparent effort. The stunt was Consuelos' response to Michelle Obama's #GimmeFive challenge.

It was just one of the ways the couple has entertained the masses on the show, generating a lot of positive feedback online.

Story continues below video.




At least one person, though, made note of Ripa’s small size:



Bench pressing aside, fans seem united in their love of the interaction between the spouses as Consuelos filled in for Michael Strahan on Wednesday and Thursday.





Us Weekly reported that the fun Ripa and Consuelos seem to have on the show has been mirrored in their marriage, at least according to Ripa. They married in 1996. She told Andy Cohen, "There's no secret! We just like each other a lot. I really — I love my husband. I think he's awesome. We've been together a long time and we try to do spicy things together all the time."

It was Consuelos’ birthday this week, and he recounted on the show that Ripa gave him the best birthday present ever — a plaque on one of the Central Park benches. It says, “Daddy Cool, est. March 30, 1971.”
