Mark Consuelos says that family comes first

With three young children and demanding careers, Mark Consuelos and wife Kelly Ripa certainly have their hands full. According to Mark, Kelly’s "very down-to-earth and positive" personality helps keep their family and marriage strong.

Mark and Kelly met on the set of All My Children and have been married for ten years. Their children – Michael, 9, Lola Grace, 5, andJoaquin, 3 – definitely keep them busy, but Mark says they do their best to find balance.

"We’re parents first, and we try to juggle the schedules. We have a lot of help, and sometimes we make it work and sometimes we don’t."

Each weekday morning, Kelly can be seen on ABC co-hosting Live with Regis and Kelly. Mark recently starred on the Lifetime series Missing.
