Date November 21, 2019 10:57

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos got married 23 years ago after they madly fell in love with each other during working together on All My Children from 1990 to 2002.

After a year of dating, the two were having pizza and wine at Consuelos's apartment when he proposed to Kelly Ripa in 1996.

"I said, 'Ask me when you're serious.' And he said, 'I am serious. Let's go to Vegas tomorrow and get married,'"

- Ripa shared on her morning show in 2018.

The two lovebirds eloped in Vegas on May 1, 1996 and that's why Ripa had never experienced the rite of passage that is a bachelorette party...Untill this November!

23 years after her wedding, Kelly Ripa was surprised by the ladies of Live! who decided to rectify the situation.

Kelly Ripa's bachelorette party

For the “never too late” celebration, the ladies checked off the main rules of a typical Las Vegas bachelorette party: check out the city with cocktails; do something tasty; dance, dance, dance; and have a surprise stripper show up.

Ripa and the women of the Live cast took a spin on the LINQ’s High Roller, enjoying drinks from their own bartender. Next, they moved on to the “provocative” variety show Absinthe. The ladies then danced the night away at the Marquee Night Club. Then an older gentleman dressed as a cop appeared.

“Excuse me ladies, I think we’ve got a problem here, and I have a solution,”

- he said, at which point Kelly Ripa got into the act, dancing and laughing.

At the end of it all, Ripa joked,

“No actual strippers were hurt in the making of that piece.”

All in all, it looks like Kelly had a great night out recalling the days of her unmarried life. Still, we believe she was happy to be back to her husband and their 3 lovely children after it all. Well done, girls! Everyone deserves to experience this splendid time of their lives and it's never too late for it!
