This past weekend was a big one for power couple Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos: the two celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary—and took to social media to mark their love for each other.

"26 years with the love of my life!," wrote Kelly, who recently shared that fans stop her to give her hair advice, in a caption on Instagram alongside a photo of the couple.

The duo's celebrity friends took to wishing Kelly and Mark a happy anniversary in the comments section of the daytime host's post as well. TV writer Gary Janetti, fashion designer Christian Siriano, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais, actor Lucy Liu and makeup artist Kristofer Buckle are just a few of the people that congratulated the couple on such an important milestone.

Lisa Rinna, also a member of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast, hilariously commented, "That's 102 Hollywood years congrats you two!!!"


Mark, on the other hand, posted two images on Instagram, one of him and his wife seemingly dancing and the other of two penguins holding "hands" with the phrase "mate for life" on top of the drawing. "Happy anniversary!," 51-year-old Mark wrote in the caption. "26 years. Penguin status."

Yesterday, the day of their actual anniversary, Kelly, also 51, posted a video on her Instagram Story. Fans got to see the couple have breakfast together and give each other a kiss before Kelly asks Mark to share some words of wisdom. 

"Find someone who will make you coffee, toast and a little breakfast on your anniversary," he said jokingly.

In the next few slides, Kelly also showed off the flowers that Mark bought her. "Best husband award recipient," she wrote.

The couple’s kids—24-year-old Michael, 20-year-old Lola and 19-year-old Joaquin—also joined in on the fun. Michael posted an image of Godzilla and King Kong on his Instagram Story and funnily captioned it, "Happy anniversary mom and dad!"

As fans know, the beloved celebrity couple met on the set of All My Children back in 1995. A mere year later, the two eloped—and they've been happily living together ever since. 

Happy anniversary, Mark and Kelly!
