Fans couldn't believe they had been on vacation as a duo for 25 years 

"What in the world," wrote one alongside a mind-blown emoji, as another added: "OMG," and a third commented: "Wow!! You both look great!! How Awesome."

Many more commented on Kelly's toned physique and said: "Look at your legs woman," and, "LEGS".

While it's not conventional couples therapy, it certainly seems to be working for Kelly and Mark who recently celebrated their 26th wedding anniversary.

The couple didn't invite their three children on their lastest vacation 

The two met on the set of All My Children when Kelly played the character of Hayley Vaughan and her husband, fittingly, her love interest Mateo Santos.

They eloped in Las Vegas in 1996 a year after meeting and have since had three children: Michael, 24, Lola, 21, and Joaquín, 19.

They have been empty-nesters since last year when their youngest went to college.
