Much like me and cheese pizza, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are completely in love. So let’s procrastinate and examine their wildly cute (and insanely long) relationship, because 23 years and three kids later, they’re still out here putting all other Hollywood couples to shame.

First Up, Kelly and Mark Met at Work

And by “at work,” I mean on the set of the Oscar-deserving-even-though-it’s-a-TV-show soap opera All My Children. And yeah, their characters fell in love and got married on the show, and yeah, there was a wedding, and yeah, we’re all about to take eight full minutes to watch the fake nuptials together even though it’s incredibly blurry:

They Were So in Love, They Eloped

After only a year of knowing each other! That’s how in love they were. They were basically the Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin of their generation (I know what you’re thinking—what a compliment! Kelly and Mark, if you’re reading this, you’re welcome!). But what’s actually crazy is that they broke up the day before their wedding. “Right before we got married, we broke up,” Kelly told Comments by Celebs’ podcast. “We broke up and we got back together the day before we went off and eloped. Yeah, we eloped. We went to Vegas and got married.”

At this point you’re probably like, if there isn’t a picture from this wedding, I will riot. But calm down, there is:

Omg. Here it is. 5/1/96 pic.twitter.com/xL79Qzdalv

Also, here’s another cute pic from that era ’cause you know you’re thirsting for it:

Mark Spends His Free Time Telling Kelly How Gorgeous She Is

While you look at these, I’ll be spending my time trying to finding someone who loves me this much. Other than my dog.

They Have Each Other’s Backs

Exhibit A: The time Mark posted this handsome photo promoting #HeForShe and a fan told Kelly she was too old for him in the comments.

Her response?

Exhibit B: When Mark posted a fire photo of Kelly in a bikini on vacation, and people started body-shaming her.

They’re So Obsessed with Each Other That They STILL Work Together

In fact, Kelly just joined the cast of Riverdale to play Mark’s mistress. Get excited, because according to Entertainment Tonight, her character is a “beautiful, icy, femme fatale who gets caught up in a conspiracy that’s much bigger than she initially realized.”
