Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos pretend to French kiss in front of their three children – just to get under their skin.

“We make them think we’re Frenching, because it disgusts them,” Ripa said on Thursday’s episode of “Live with Kelly & Mark.”

And while Ripa clarified that they “never [actually] French in front of the kids,” her husband said they “fake” it to mess with them.

The conversation all began after the lovebirds, both 52, gushed over their passion for making out.

“You know the romance languages. The Europeans — we’re both from that descent. There’s the French kiss – one of my favorites,” Consuelos said, while jokingly adding, “One of our kids’ favorites when we’re doing it. They love that.”

Of course, Ripa and Consuelos have never shied away from their steamy love life – even after 27 years of marriage.

The “All My Children” alum hit that milestone earlier this month, and Ripa celebrated the occasion by sharing a photo of them actually Frenching.

“Love of my life,” Ripa captioned the post, shared to Instagram at the time.

The lovebirds have never been afraid to talk about their steamy marriage.

The two tied the knot in 1996 and share three children: Michael, 25, Lola, 21, and Joaquin, 20.

Their nonstop flirty attitude has carried over into their daytime talk show – which Consuelos took over for Ryan Seacrest in April.

However, Ripa recently lost it when her hubby was telling the story of an injury and showed the audience a photo of him at a doctor’s office.

The gnarly pic included a blurred out shot of Consuelos’s crotch – despite him being fully clothed.

“I’m laughing because [of] the pixelation of your crotch,” Ripa said while laughing and wiping away tears.

The longtime talk show host also “highly encouraged” her beau to consider posing nude while talking about other older celebrities who have taken the risk.

“It’s a real treat,” she said with a wink.

The couple initially faced criticism from fans who thought they were packing on too much PDA, but the critics don’t seem to be changing their minds.

“Live with Kelly and Mark” airs weekdays at 9 a.m. ET.
