Ripa and Consuelos were wed in 1996, and share three children: Michael, 18, Lola, 14, and Joaquin, 13. During a recent episode of Live!, Ripa revealed that she pulled out her wedding dress during their tropical vacation, noting, “it still fits!”

“The story behind the dress is I bought it at the Barney’s Warehouse sale,” she explained. “The dress is 25 years old. My marriage is 20 years old. I didn’t buy it as a wedding dress. I just bought it because it was really pretty, and I wanted to buy something from the Barney’s Warehouse sale. I was working on the soap. I didn’t make a lot of money. It was $199 on final clearance sale. ‘Do I eat this week, or do I get this dress.” Literally, this was the thought process.”

She continued, “I said to myself, ‘I bet if I buy this maybe it will be an investment piece. Maybe I will wear it more than once.’ I swear to you I wear it constantly. It’s a beach cover up now. I wear it all the time. It was the best $199 I ever spent in my life.”

The past few weeks have not been without drama for Ripa, whose co-host Michael Strahan recently announced plans to leave the morning show for a full-time did Good Morning America. (Ripa, who was scheduled to go on a vacation with Consuelos the weekend following the announcement, ultimately decided to cancel her trip to plan for her return to Live! following her absence.)

So who will take over as Ripa’s small screen partner-in-crime?

“The network does have a long roster of people who will step in to guest host,” a source previously told PEOPLE. “They’ll do the same thing they did when they found Michael … they’ll rotate a bunch of people in.”

Some of those people will includeAnderson Cooper, Andy Cohen and Josh Groban.
