Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos celebrated 25 years of marriage with romantic Instagram posts.

The couple, who first met playing on-screen love interests on "All My Children, have been married since 1996 and marked their milestone anniversary on Saturday.

"Happy 25th Anniversary to the love of my life @instasuelos," Ripa captioned her post, which featured a photo montage of the two over the years.

"Thank you for all of the dreams you made reality," she concluded.

Consuelos commented on Ripa's post, writing, "Thank you for saying yes."

The "Riverdale" star paid tribute to his and Ripa's relationship on his own Instagram page as well.

Consuelos posted a video montage of moments from their years together, and captioned it with a quote from Stevie Wonder's 1976 song "As."

"Sobbing. I love you so very much. Some of these pics are never before seen. As in, I've never seen them before," Ripa commented on the post.

The "Live!" host also shared with her followers that she'd received the "best gift ever" from her husband for their anniversary, posting images of her romantic gift from Consuelos to her Instagram stories.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Ripa's gift was a handmade photo album with photos from throughout her and Consuelos' relationship, including photos from the births of the couple's three children: Michael, 23; Lola, 19; and Joaquin, 18.

Consuelos even wrote Ripa a sweet note in the beginning of the book.

After wishing her a happy anniversary, Consuelos wrote, "If I were to write a book of our story, these are the 25 places that could have their own chapter. All of these places mean so much to me - and hopefully to you too."

Ripa and Consuelos have frequently spoken about their long-lasting relationship

While speaking on a recent episode of the "Double Date" podcast, Ripa recalled a "defining moment" from their first year of marriage.

"When we first got married, I think Mark felt like he rushed into it and maybe he made a mistake and maybe he was regretting it, and he took my wedding ring and threw it out the window," Ripa told Marlo Thomas and Phil Donahue on the April 19 episode.

The talk show host said that while the tossing of the wedding ring could have caused other couples to call it quits, she and Consuelos, who was 25 at the time, were able to work through it.

"I looked at him, and I said, 'I get it. I'm young and married and I'm scared, too. I get it. This is forever. I'm with you,'" Ripa said. "Now we have to go find this ring.'

"And I did," Consuelos said.
