Though she's known as Kelly Ripa to television audiences, Kelly goes by Kelly Consuelos at home—which Mark says he loves to hear. "Especially because I have a wife like this," he says.

But Kelly's name can create confusion when they travel together, Mark says. "Sometimes we're at hotels, and I'll answer the phone. They'll say, 'Mr. Ripa, your breakfast is coming upstairs.' And I'm like, 'Is my father-in-law here?'" Mark says. "But, obviously, I'm proud either way—Ripa or Consuelos."

Kelly says she keeps it simple when referring to Mark. "Sweetie, baby, my man," she says. "Sometimes Oprah's man."
