LIVE! with Kelly and Mark host Kelly Ripa has taken fans down memory lane as she posts a cutesy moment between her and her husband Mark Consuelos.
The married All My Children alum were hugged up in the throwback snap that was taken before social media even existed.
Behind them was a beautiful ocean and scenic sunset.
The co-hosting couple sideways hugged for their pose, leaning into each other lovingly.
Kelly threw in some razzle-dazzle for the image by placing her hand on her spouse’s muscular peck that popped through his salmon-colored shirt and giving a cheeky grin.
She captioned her pic: “B.I. … #BeforeInstagram #OldSchool #TB,” tagging her husband Mark.
Fans complimented the former soap stars on their romantic relationship and credited their marriage with making their morning show more interesting in the post’s comment section.
One fan raved: “Kelly, you and Mark are killing on Live! To be honest I watch it more now than I did before.
“The chemistry and humor you both have is amazing. Mark is so cute and funny especially when he’s trying to not give the mug away.”

Another added: “You two are one of my all time favorite Celeb couples since AMC.
“I am so happy for Mark getting the hosting job at Live. You two are amazing together on and off screen.
“Love the respect for one.”
A third fan noted: “So cute! Love that Mark is on the show with you now! You two are great together! Love hearing all your stories.”
THE NEW NORM
Both the audience at home and the audience in the ABC studio have been adjusting to Mark’s new role as Kelly’s permanent co-host.
During an episode, the Riverdale actor begged the audience to stop “booing” him after he made a comment to his wife that they didn’t seem to approve of.
Kelly began a discussion about an article she read on big butts “going out of fashion.”
Some people apparently started to reverse their Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) procedures to go back to having smaller bums, she said.
This led Mark to ask his wife if she’d ever consider getting a BBL.
“You tell me,” she responded, turning the tables on him.
He laughed uncomfortably before she decided to answer.
“I don’t know. I just feel like there’s so many other places I’d rather put implants if I had the time and energy,” the New Jersey native said.
Mark then agreed with her before quickly realizing how that sounded and worked to clarify as the audience began booing him.
“I mean, I don’t agree that you should do that, but I agree–,” he tried to explain, but the audience was turning on him.
Mark pointed out to the crowd and told them to “stop it,” clarifying once more: “I did not say anything – I just agreed because she’s my wife.”
