Kelly Ripa has very fond memories of her honeymoon.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” the host expressed her gratitude for a very special photo her husband Mark Consuelos took of her after saying “yes” in 1996.
The 51-year-old said the candid snap was taken by his wife, also 51, as she took a siesta without a bikini top.
“I went topless on my honeymoon, and I’m so grateful — I’m so, so grateful,” Ripa said.

At the time, however, Ripa said she wasn’t exactly jumping for joy at the risque photo.
“I was like, ‘How could you take that picture of me? The Fotomat man saw me naked!'” she recalls. “And Mark is like, ‘Yeah, OK, because he’s focused on your…'”
These days, Ripa sings a different tune. The star insisted the photo is a throwback relic that she happily treasures.
“Do you know that I often rummage through the shoebox and think, ‘Well, remember! It used to look like this!” she said.

“No, no – eww,” Ripa said. “Let me say on behalf of anyone who has ever seen me naked: Eww.”
Ripa and Consuelos are parents of three children: Joaquin, 19; Lola, 21; and Michael, 25. Earlier this week, Ripa described how she and Conseulos recently embarked on a parents-only vacation.
“This is our first vacation in 25 years without children or parents,” Ripa told Seacrest, 47. the children?’ And the kids were like, “What are you going to do without us? We’re your whole life.” And I was like, ‘False again, kids.'”

“At the end of the day, we had some unforgettable times,” Ripa continued. “There was work involved in this trip, but that’s not what we were doing. We were just rock climbing. We went to the Amangiri [resort] in Utah. It’s luxury. It’s the kind of trip we would do without kids.”
Ripa and Consuelos met on the set of “All My Children”. They celebrated their 26th anniversary on May 1.
