The couple eloped to Las Vegas, and the photo shows Ripa wore a sparkly pink spaghetti-strap dress. Consuelos wore a dark suit.
Since their days as soap actors, Ripa has become a daytime talk-show host whose success was marked by "Live with Regis & Kelly," which later became "Live with Kelly & Michael." Consuelos is a regular on prime-time television, and runs a production company with his wife, according to NBC.
The two live with their three children in New York City.
"He is the person I was meant to be with forever, and I think he feels the same way," Ripa told People.
