RIPA SHARES SWEET SECRET ABOUT HER ENGAGEMENT RING
Ripa has opened up about the story behind the engagement ring Consuelos gave her.
Ripa explained that 22 years ago, she and Consuelos had not followed the traditional route to marriage of a lengthy engagement and an elaborate family wedding.
Instead, the two young actors who had met on the set of "All My Children" had simply eloped, so Ripa never had an engagement ring. Then, 10 years ago Consuelos finally gave her a stunning engagement ring.
"We never had an engagement, we just eloped- It must have been making him feel a certain way that I didn't have a ring so for our 10th anniversary we bought me a ring! I'm sure my kids will drag it from my dead body but I will never part with it because it's so special."
The ring has a simple design and consists of a gold band and a large rose-cut solitaire diamond. Ripa's wedding band is a simple gold band with diamonds inset all around.
