She was spending some private time with her husband in ‘fantasy island.’


According to an article published by Closer Weekly, Live With Kelly and Ryan star Kelly Ripa took a brief break from the show to go on vacation with her husband, Mark Consuelos.

Fans of the show were beginning to speculate the reason behind her abrupt absence. However, Ripa and Consuelos recently silenced the rumors by posting photos of themselves on a holiday.

One of the recent photos shared by Consuelos was a picture of Ripa enjoying a dip in the waves.

In the post, she was seen standing in a body of water on a sunny day, wearing a skimpy two-piece bikini and a hat.


She appeared to be happy on her day out, striking a pose against the backdrop of the blue waters and the blue sky.


Ripa looked glamorous in her swimwear, revealing her toned body. She chose to accessorize with a thick necklace and a pair of shades.

Consuelos captioned the picture by stating that he enjoyed spending time in intimacy with his wife.


Ripa has over 1.7 million followers on Instagram, and they were relieved to find out that Ripa’s absence was not a hint about her future on the show.

Instead, it turns out that Ripa and Consuelos were vacationing with their friends on a ‘fantasy island.’


From the series of posts shared by Ripa, it was revealed that they celebrated the birthday of TV producer Albert Bianchini.

In a separate post, Ripa conveyed her birthday wishes and called Bianchini the brother she never knew she needed.


She also shared other snippets from their vacation, including one in which she announced that the party had begun, and another one in which Consuelos was seen swimming shirtless in a pool.

While Ripa continues to be away from the spotlight for a while, Ryan Seacrest is scheduled to fill in for her.
