TV actor Mark Consuelos is counting down to the day he would finally reunite with his wife and kids following his quarantine move to Vancouver to film "Riverdale." 

Consuelos, 49, shared some snapshots showing off their couple-time memories and penning his countdown in the caption on his Instagram page.

The "Riverdale" star's message to his "home team" included two sweet photos of him and his longtime partner, Kelly Ripa. The first was a selfie that showed them from an up-close view. Here, Ripa rocked a no-makeup look as she wrapped her hands around her spouse's neck. He captioned:

"1 month down… 3 to go...missing my home team."

The next snapshot showed them basking in more cozy moments as the duo rocked black outfits and beamed for the camera. Ripa sported a spaghetti strap blouse while her hubby looked handsome in a t-shirt. She had one hand slung over his arm while presenting a lovely smile.



Over the lockdown stint, Kelly quarantined alongside her star actor husband and their three kids, Lola, Michael, and Joaquin. Through the period, the celebrity couple showed off couple goals and enjoyed more bonding time.

The couple shared that watching their kids have access to enough technology for remote learning made them realize that many kids were lacking.

However, when they had to return to their respective demanding jobs, it was quite emotional for the lovebirds. On one of her studio episodes with co-host Ryan Seacrest, Ripa mentioned that the lockdown was like a honeymoon for them, and not being with him was "sad."



The couple was able to have one last celebration before Consuelos' move to Vancouver as they enjoyed some intimate time over a BBQ lunch for Labor Day. Their celebration was televised on "Live with Kelly and Ryan," with Seacrest virtually joining them.

There was a brief hitch where Ripa burned her mouth while trying to eat grilled fish. There was, however, no cause for alarm as the mom-of-three returned almost immediately after taking a break to tend to herself. 



This month, the star couple extended their philanthropy to some homeless college students who lacked access to technology due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Consuelos and his wife of 24 years, in collaboration with Win, launched the first scholarship fund to provide laptops and estimates of $2,000 each for the beneficiaries.

Speaking with People, the couple shared that watching their kids have access to enough technology for remote learning made them realize that many kids were lacking. 

This is not their first donation to Win, as Ripa and her spouse donated whopping sums to help purchase technology gadgets for many students.
