Kelly Ripa Shares Her Secrets To A Strong Marriage

Kelly Ripa reveals the secrets to her successful marriage.

Kelly and husband Mark Consuelos have been married for fourteen years and share three children together – Michael, 13, Lola, 9, Joaquin, 7.  She shared a little sneak peek into what makes their marriage work in the November issue of Good Housekeeping: "Sometimes we’ll put the kids to bed early and watch Jersey Shore on DVR. It can be that simple, just the two of us, alone, one day a week, for dinner and hijinks … a little bump and tickle. Woo-hoo! I’m 40. I can say that now. I think we’re better parents because date night gives us something to look forward to, a night where we’re not saying, ‘Put that down, stop touching her, don’t spill that.’"

Kelly says that she and Mark are connected in a way that some wouldn’t understand: "I think about my husband in the middle of the day because I love him and I can’t wait to see him. He is my best friend. Nobody knows me the way he knows me. We’ve seen each other in an Avatar, ‘I see you’ way."
