It is Love Week over at Live! With Kelly and Ryan, and in honor of Valentine's Day, Kelly Ripa only wanted her one true love by her side to kick-off the week.

Rather than her usual co-host, Ryan Seacrest, the morning talk show star was joined by her husband Mark Consuelos on stage to host the show.

The two were immediately in a Valentine's Day mood, walking out in front of their live audience with linked arms and ear to ear smiles, and as they approached their seats, Mark even gave his wife a sweet twirl.

The actor was in a lovey-dovey mood as well, and ever the gentleman, he made sure to pull out Kelly's seat for her, and immediately complemented the green dress she had on, telling her: "I love this green dress you're wearing."

"We're gonna be practicing love all week long," the host then cheekily announced, promptly receiving cheers from her audience, as she added: "When you think of love, I want you to think of this show."

Live! had Rita Ora as their guest as well

He shared some envy-inducing photos from his time away, enjoying plenty of sweet treats and fresh fruit while on his way to work, and seemingly already gaining quite the tan.

"We love this for you," one fan commented under the post, as others said: "Lucky Duck!" and: "In your element."
