The Live! With Kelly and Michael host, 43, was joined by husband Mark Conseulos and another couple, actor Matt Bomer and his publicist partner Simon Halls for a day of relaxation on the beach. See more photos of the group.
Wearing a pair of aviator shades, simple gold jewels and her wedding band, Ripa wore nothing else except for her skimpy green two-piece swimsuit. The mother of three kids -- Michael, 16, Lola, 12, and Joaquin, 10 -- casually removed her sheer white cover up and bared her ripped abs and lean arms during her day of fun.
Her shirtless 42-year-old hubby, meanwhile, looked ripped and stylish in a hat and shades. The couple of 17 years enjoyed drinks as they relaxed with Bomer and Halls during their tropical getaway.
Last month, the petite blonde tweeted a buzzed-about photo of herself during a workout that put her abs in center stage: Ripa, casually leaning upside down on a yoga mat, flaunted her six pack in the picture -- and her trainer of three years, Anna Kaiser, spoke to Shape magazine about the star's secrets.
"She works out four to five days per week for 90 minutes per session," Kaiser told the mag. "Her work ethic is more insane than anyone I've ever met! She's so driven, present, excited, and focused."
The New York resident, who is "much too busy to be running around doing a yoga class at one place and a barre or a spin class in the other" according to Kaiser, has a workout routine that actually implements multiple techniques: "For her, it was mostly about combining all that and getting more cardio into her life," the fitness expert added. "Leaning herself out a little, and there were also certain parts of her body that were either overdeveloped or reconditioned," Kaiser continued.
The trainer, who recently opened a Manhattan location for AKT In Motion, also explained Ripa's dietary habits to Shape: "Kelly is very knowledgeable about nutrition -- she knows what's good for her and loves veggies and eating healthy," she shared. "She will eat throughout the day but always in moderation."
