"Happy birthday," she wrote on Instagram to her 49-year-old partner. "There’s nobody I’d rather be locked down with than you." The caption alludes to the fact that the couple is quarantined together along with their children Lola (who also shared a birthday message to Consuelos on Instagram), 18, Michael, 22, and Joaquin, 17.
Ripa's message was posted alongside a video montage of Consuelos that includes throwback pictures of the two together, with their kids during events, of Consuelos shirtless on the beach and in bed, and pics with friends including Andy Cohen.
The birthday clip seems to be an annual tradition at this point. Last year, Ripa posted a different video of the "Riverdale" star, complete with photos and the caption "Happy birthday to the finest man! You are our heart and soul and rock and roll."
Don't worry: He also returned the favor. On Ripa's 49th birthday in October, he shared a gallery of images, including one of the couple kissing and childhood photos of her. He had a cheeky message: "Happy Birthday to my Fave..I’m really glad you were born.. Because let’s face it, if you weren’t , I would’ve been married 3 or 4 times by now."
It's doubtful that fans will need to wait until October to see more romantic messages pass between the partners. The last time Ripa posted a photo herself and Consuelos holding hands was three days ago.
