Ciara is forever in paradise after marrying Russell Wilson. The “Goodies” singer co-hosted Live with Kelly on Wednesday, October 19, and gave Kelly Ripa and update on life as a newlywed.

“Since you’ve been here last, you’ve gotten married. Congratulations!” Ripa, 45, told her guest host. “I was gonna hold up your wedding picture… This looks like the picture that comes with the frame. When you buy the frame and it’s like, ‘We need a beautiful couple for the frame.’”

The photo, of course, was the first wedding snapshot shared by the couple moments after they exchanged vows inside Peckforton Castle, a beautiful 19th century venue located in England.

Ripa then directed her attention to Ciara’s large engagement ring and band. “I can’t help but notice your wedding ring,” she gushed as Ciara got bashful.

“Oh, goodness! I always get funny!” the singer replied. “After a special day like that, life is a honeymoon within itself. It keeps going on and on.”

Ciara and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Wilson got married on Wednesday, July 6. Moments after solidifying their newlywed status, both stars took to social media to share a simple message alongside their first wedding photo: “We are The Wilsons!”

Since then, the two have adorably supported each other both publicly and privately. On Tuesday, Ciara posted a photo of a beautiful display of white and red roses inside her hotel room. “Special Delivery From My Love.#ChooseLove.”

The artist—who was announced as the new face of Revlon the day before—told Ripa that she and Mark Consuelos served as inspiration in her marriage. “I’m trying to do it like you though!” Ciara noted.
