Mark Consuelos        

Former Soap Opera Star & Husband of Kelly Ripa

Mark Consuelos is a Spanish-born American television and film actor.

Consuelos had a starring role in the educational series "Connect With English," which aired on public television stations as part of the Annenberg/CPB Project. In February 1995, Consuelos had his breakthrough when he landed the role of Mateo Santos on the soap opera "All My Children." There, he fell in love with his on-screen love interest Kelly Ripa, and secretly married her in Las Vegas, in May 1996. At the time, he lived on co-star Winsor Harmon's sofa; Harmon was one of the few to know that co-stars Ripa and Consuelos were not only dating, but married.

Ripa and Consuelos continued to tape episodes of "All My Children" until 2002, when Ripa wished to focus more on her other job: taking over for Kathie Lee Gifford as host of what then became "Live! with Regis and Kelly" then, "Live! with Kelly" and now, subsequently "Live! with Kelly and Michael." Consuelos is a regular guest co-host.

Since leaving "All My Children," Consuelos has starred in the feature film "The Great Raid," which debuted in theaters in 2005. In 2006, he appeared in the movie "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" as Steve, and in 2007 he appeared in "Wedding Daze." He has been seen on the Lifetime series "Missing," with Vivica A. Fox. He also had a part in "Ugly Betty."

Consuelos hosted two reality dating shows, "Age of Love" and "Science of Love," both airing on NBC in 2007. He guest-starred on "Third Watch," "Friends," "American Family," "Fortune Hunter," "SeaQuest" and "Hope & Faith."

In 2008 he performed the marriage ceremony for Howard Stern and model/actress Beth Ostrosky at the Le Cirque restaurant in New York City. The two couples had grown close, which was why Stern asked Consuelos to perform the wedding ceremony. Consuelos agreed, and took it upon himself to seek ordination to make it an official ceremony for Stern and Ostrosky.

After stints on the "Law & Order" franchises, Consuelos portrayed Spivey, a recurring character, in "American Horror Story: Asylum," the second season of the anthology horror series.
