Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are couple goals! Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the mom-of-three shared a photo from their Easter celebrations and it looks like they had plenty of fun. Donning a pair of bunny ears for the occasion, the couple posed for a selfie, which Kelly captioned: "Happy Easter from two wascally wabbits." 

As well as sparking a major reaction from fans, the picture prompted a cheeky comment from Kelly's good friend and ABC anchor, David Muir. "No truer words," he responded with a rabbit emoji. David has long shared a close bond with both Mark and Kelly, and over the years he's opened up about his sweet relationship with their family – which includes their three children Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 19.

During a 2022 appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, David and Kelly explained that their families would spend summers together at his home. "I kind of miss our weekends together," she said, at which point David mentioned that they'd spend days by the pool and barbecue together. "You are a great grill master, your cheeseburgers are delicious," Kelly gushed. "Joaquin would rather eat at David's than anywhere else on earth."

Last year, Kelly also released her debut book, Live Wire, in which she gave a special shout out to her friend, David. It read: "To David Muir, you are the backbone and moral compass I need sometimes."

Kelly recently spoke about the first time she saw David on TV and revealed the hilarious way she reached out to him. Speaking to her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, on Live, she said: "I remember when I first saw David Muir file a report for World News Tonight. I didn't know him at all. 

"I immediately cracked into the ABC News system email - which you're not supposed to use unless it's for news - and I wrote: "Dude. You looked amazing tonight. Don't know what was going on. Looked kinda dangerous where you are. But just wanted to let you know that you looked amazing. I had the volume down."

David is also a good friend of Kelly's husband, Mark, and in 2019, he shared a sweet photo to mark the actor's birthday on Instagram. "Happy birthday @instasuelos - you make every view better - truly," he wrote in the caption.
