Mom-of-three Kelly Ripa showed off her new ink during an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman last night. When Dave pointed out the word scrawled across Kelly’s wrist, she proudly revealed, “My new tattoo! It says ‘Consuelos,’ it’s my last name.”
Kelly says that she got the tattoo, in honor of her handsome husband of 13 years Mark Consuelos, just a week ago. She admits, though, that Mark’s reaction wasn’t quite what she was hoping for.
“So I came home and [waving her newly inked wrist around] said, ‘I have a surprise for you… do you notice anything different?’ And he said, ‘You got your haircut.’ ‘No, I did not get my haircut. Anything else?’ ‘You got… Botox?’ ‘Nooo. Anything else?’ He named about 17 different things: You got your teeth laser whitened…. I said, ‘I got a tattoo. With your name on it.’ And he goes, ‘Oh honey, that’s permanent.”
The longtime lovebirds, who have kids Michael, 12, Lola, 8, and Joaquin, 7, met on the set of All My Children.
Do you have – or would you get – a tattoo in honor of your partner?
