“My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant,” she tweeted. “Although this isn’t how I expected to announce my pregnancy, both we and our families are excited to share the news with you all.”
She continues, “I consulted with my doctors and they advised me that for the safety of our baby and myself, I should be extra vigilant about limiting the amount of people we come in contact with. Starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a result, I will be appearing on The View from home via satellite.”
This news comes after her co-host Joy Behar said she will be temporarily stepping away from the ABC daytime talk show as a precautionary measure because of the coronavirus outbreak due to her age. Moderator Whoopi Goldberg has been joining the daily discussions from home.
