Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have a solid 27 years of marriage under their belt, but there's one thing they'll never agree on!

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Live with Kelly and Mark hosts revealed their surprisingly different recollections of their first kiss.

The pair first locked lips on-screen in 1996 while portraying their All My Children characters Hayley Vaughan and Mateo Santos, respectively.

The Riverdale actor, 52, shared that he was "really surprised" about the kiss at the time because she "slipped the tongue." However, Ripa, 52, adamantly denied his version of events.

"That is not true!" she protested, with a laugh. "That is a lie."

"It was the '90s, so it was fast and loose," Conseulos said with a smirk. "Big tongue."

The actress continued to argue, insisting to her now-husband, "I never French [kiss] on set. That's my own personal rule — no Frenching on set."

The couple first met on the set of All My Children when Consuelos joined the soap opera in 1995 and began dating soon after. They tied the knot in May of 1996, and their characters followed in their footsteps with an on-screen wedding in 2000.

The pair have since welcomed three kids: sons Joaquin, 20, and Michael, 26, as well as daughter Lola, 22.

The Riverdale star permanently joined his wife as cohost of Live in February, succeeding Ryan Seacrest after his departure. Prior to scoring the official position, Consuelos guest-hosted the show 92 times.

"I think that people think that we're on top of each other all day," he told ET of working with his wife. "We see each for a few hours in the morning, and oftentimes we don't see each other until dinnertime nowadays. Because we both are off doing different things. I don't think it's, you know, too much time. There's no such thing."

In April, Ripa told PEOPLE that co-hosting with her husband was a "dream come true" and that they're "uniquely blessed."

"I prefer the togetherness," she said at the time. "I really enjoy being around him — he's great company, so funny, so smart, insightful, pragmatic and super level-headed. He doesn't get rattled, and that's very reassuring and comforting to be around."
