After more than two decades of marriage, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos still can’t get enough of each other.

The couple, who met on the set of “All My Children” in 1996 and married the same year, often show off their love on social media.

So when Consuelos had his 48th birthday on March 30, his wife celebrated by sharing a sweet post to Instagram to commemorate the special day.

The “Live! With Kelly and Ryan” host posted a slideshow complete with music and photos of their family together.

She captioned the birthday post:

Happy birthday to the finest man! You are our heart and soul and rock and roll @instasuelos ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Her husband responded to the Instagram post with a “thank you” and lots of heart emojis.

Ripa celebrated her 48th birthday just a few months prior to her husband’s but had to hit back at a fan recently when they called her “too old” to be with Consuelos.

The fan wrote on an Instagram post:

@kellyripa, yes he is so handsome but you need to go. Kelly, you look to old for him. Sorry, but you do.

The talk show host was quick to write back:

@mariaxdiax, you need to learn how to spell the word too sweetie. As in you’re too stupid to be with my young, handsome husband. Ps, he likes proper grammar as well you dope.

Regardless of what fans think, it seems the two former soap opera stars are in a loving relationship that has withstood the test of time.
