Kelly Ripa And Marc Consuelos proclaimed their undying love for each other as they celebrated their 28th wedding anniversary on Wednesday, May 1.

The couple entered the set of Live with Kelly and Mark to their favorite song, Stevie WonderThe 1976 classic, “As.”

“This makes me so excited. Stevie Wonder. He’s just the soundtrack to our life together. He really is,” Ripa, 53, said.

As they exchanged “happy birthday” wishes, Consuelos, 53, reflected on the milestone.

“I was in bed last night trying to do the math,” he said. “My reference point for a long time is going from freshman year to high school. Twelve years is a long time. For example, when you were a child, it was a lifetime. It’s like doing that twice plus a PhD. Plus four years of college and master’s studies!

Ripa joked, “You have your doctorate in marriage. Should I call you Dr. Consuelos? Her husband liked the idea, laughing about “maybe doing a house call later.”

Ripa met Consuelos in 1995 when they were starring in All my children together. The two eloped and were married on May 1, 1996 in Las Vegas at the Nevada Chapel of the Bells.

“We cherish these memories even today. It’s been 28 years and we still remember every minute of that wedding,” Ripa told People in February about the ceremony, which cost them $179, including airfare. “And I mean, it was definitely a few minutes. It was about two minutes!

Two months ago, Ripa and Consuelos recreated their Las Vegas wedding photos on Instagram.

“Viva Las Vegas ✨ Then ➡️ Now,” Ripa captioned the photos. They also returned to the chapel earlier this year to film a week of their show.

The couple have three children: Michael, 26, Lola, 22, and Joaquin Antonio, 20.

When asked to share her goals for the future on Wednesday’s show, Consuelos replied: “Continue what we’ve been doing. And by that I mean removing all children from the payroll.

“We are so close,” Ripa commented about their children living alone. “We can taste it!” We can taste financial freedom. Not that we aren’t grateful for the three beautiful children we love and adore.

The happy parents also celebrated their anniversary on social networks.

“Cutting 28 years into 10 photos isn’t possible, but you get the idea. Happy birthday to the love of my life @instasuelos ♥️ I’m so grateful to you for all the dreams come true,” Ripa captioned a carousel of throwback photos.

“I’m forever grateful that you decided to go on this crazy, beautiful ride with me. Happy 28th birthday. I love you @kellyripa,” Consuelos wrote while posting her own photo gallery.

The celebration took place a day after Consuelos confessed to his wife and Live with Kelly and Mark public that he shared a kiss with another woman while celebrating a championship victory for the 1919 Campobasso Italian soccer team that he owned with Ripa.

“In the adulation, in the celebration on the field, when we found out that the other team was tied and we were champions, we ran to our fans,” he explained. “I’m running and I see this lady, let’s call her aunt – maybe someone else’s aunt – and we look at each other and we’re so excited and there’s this (plexi) glass and we get to the glass, and you know what? I kissed her.

Ripa asked if it was “open mouth” and if her husband had an “emotional affair,” at which point Consuelos tried to backtrack and say the person he kissed could have been a man.

“Don’t try to run away now,” Ripa joked. “You ever called that someone’s aunt
