Kelly Ripa celebrates 24 years of marriage and jokes about 'thrupple' partner ...

They are the two most important men in Kelly Ripa's life.

And she celebrated them both as she marked a double anniversary on Friday - 24 years of marriage to husband Mark Consuelos, and three years co-hosting live with her TV partner, Ryan Seacrest.

Clearly amused at the timing, Kelly described the trio as a 'thrupple' - a word usually used to describe a romantic relationship between three partners.

'Happy anniversary to my favorite partners!' she wrote on Instagram. 'Work and life. You two are the very best! @instasuelos and @ryanseacrest you are♥️♥️ #thrupple #anniversary.'
