Twinning! Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos looked well-suited for one another as they enjoyed vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico in matching swimsuits.

The longtime loves, who have been married for nearly 23 years after meeting on the set of All My Children, flaunted their fit physiques in coordinating white swimwear as they were photographed walking alongside the ocean.

While Ripa, 48, showed off her hard-earned abs in a triangle string bikini top, matching low rise bottoms, round sunglasses and a straw hat, Consuelos, 47, rocked a pair of short crisp white swim trunks, sunglasses and a nearly identical hat as his wife.

The vacation comes as Riverdale fans eagerly await Ripa’s guest appearance; she’ll play Consuelos’ character’s mistress on the comic-book drama new episode Wednesday. (Their 21-year-old son Michael guest-starred this season, too!)

Last year, Consuelos jumped to Ripa’s defense after internet trolls came after the Live! With Kelly and Ryan star for seemingly appearing too thin in a gold swimsuit.

“She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show. Yes she’s wearing a bikini at age 47 and will no doubt wear one for many years to come,” he wrote in a reply to his wife’s critics.

Ripa’s secret to maintaining her figure? She first starts with an high-alkaline diet, which focuses on vegetables like beets, broccoli, cucumber, kale, kiwi, bell pepper and more, while avoiding acidic foods like yogurt, fish and sugar.

“It has changed my life, it’s changed the whole way I think about food,” Ripa said on her show in 2015.

On top of moderating her diet, Ripa also believes maintaining a steady workout regimen is vital for not only her physical health, but also her mental health.

“There are a lot of people that don’t have to work out, and I am so happy for them, but I have to work out for my body type,” she said. “It’s part of my routine. It’s part of my ritual. It doesn’t just make me look better, but it makes me emotionally feel better.”

Riverdale airs Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on the CW.
