The host stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and when asked if the rumors were true about him replacing Michael Strahan on LIVE! he didn't confirm or deny them. 

"That’s very flattering. Very flattering. You’re so nice," Lopez told Ellen DeGeneres. "I know, people were saying that. I love Kelly. I’ve guest-hosted with her a few times — she’s awesome. I actually did a movie with her husband, Mark [Consuelos], who’s a real good guy,"

DeGeneres continued to push and Lopez revealed he's "looking forward to going back and guest-hosting again."

"And then maybe you’ll be the replacement?" she continued on the topic. "I’m not starting rumors. You’re not shutting it down. You’re not saying, 'Absolutely not.'"

Lopez was quick on his feet and said, "Well, I got to go over everything with Mrs. Lopez. She’s the real boss of the house, so we’ll see what she has to say about that."
