Though Ripa clarified that they “never [actually] French in front of the kids,” Consuelos chimed in to note they "fake" it just to mess with Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 20.
Their hilarious revelation stemmed from the PDA couple discussing their passion for making out, with the Riverdale actor saying: “You know the romance languages. The Europeans — we’re both from that descent. There’s the French kiss – one of my favorites."
He quipped: “One of our kids’ favorites when we’re doing it. They love that.”
Much to their kids' — and the public's —dismay, Ripa and Consuelos have never shied away from flaunting their steamy love life in front of the world.
Though their over-the-top love was strictly seen on social media, when Ripa would often post thirst traps of her man, they took things one step further when Consuelos joined his wife on Live! earlier this year.

And while Consuelos has been loving his time on the chat show so far — saying: "This show today truly felt like home," after the first episode — fans have had mixed responses.
Whether it had to do with their apparent "fake banter" or over-the-top PDA, critics were quick to express their upset with the change-up, with one critic writing: “Bruuuutal! Last time i watch. I can go to the mall and watch teenagers kiss LESS!!! THE BEGINNING OF THE END."
"Ok Kelly..we get it..you love Mark..enough ..Now just get on with the show and entertainment..." another whined.
