Kelly Ripa has revealed that she once fell unconscious in the middle of sex with her husband Mark Consuelos before being rushed to hospital.

The 51-year-old Live With Kelly and Ryan host has been married to the Riverdale actor since 1996, and the couple share three children: Michael, 25, Joaquin, 10, and Lola, 21.

The TV show host recalled the terrifying sex story in her new memoir, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories, which is set to be released on September 27.

Ripa explained that the incident went down in the late 1990s when she and Consuelos were newlyweds - and just a few months after she had given birth to her first child.

The All My Children actress wrote that she ultimately passed out during the lovemaking but not because she was having the time of her life - although she was - but due to two ovarian cysts she was unaware of.

Ripa then wrote in her book, according to Haute Living, that while the whole thing was quite the ordeal for her, she said that her husband was almost too calm throughout the scary experience.

"My eyes shift between the fuzzy images on the screen, the remnants of my ovarian tormentor, and Mark happily snacking away," she said. "Sex can be so traumatic I think, and yet one of us is completely undaunted."

"There he is, happily munching on the saltines now and ordering a second apple juice. Mark could be at a movie or a spa. Instead, I’m flat on my back wondering when the other two cysts will burst," she added.

Even in her hospital bed, the Hope and Faith actress was awake to berate her husband over her outfit choice after he rushed her to the ER in a French-cut leotard, red "f*** me" Manolo Blahniks, and a pair of his oversized Juventus warm-up pants.

"Also, here is my husband, who is, dare I say, stylish, well-dressed at all times, and yet he dressed me like a dime store prostitute in my time of need," she said.

"It’s still baffling to me to this day that this is the best costume for the day that he could find for me, to the point where, when I was on the stretcher, I thought I was dreaming; I was having a nightmare. I didn’t realize I had come to," she added.

Fortunately, Ripa made a full recovery and now knows not to let her husband "pick [her] death clothes".
