Say it isn't so! After six seasons as a co-host on ABC's The Chew, Daphne Oz has announced that she is leaving the daytime talk show. The 31-year-old mom is a nutrition author and television host, and the daughter of health advocates Dr. Mehmet and Lisa Oz.
"It has been an incredible 6 seasons with the [ABC The Chew] crew, and I am honored to always be a part of this wild family of [five]," Daphne wrote in her caption on Instagram. "Thank you for being the BEST audience, and for spending your lunch time with me."
Daphne married John Jovanovic, an investment fun analyst, in 2010. Together, the couple has two children and is currently expecting their third. Many fans of The Chew are speculating that Daphne's latest pregnancy could be the catalyst for her departure from the show.
"All the best in your new adventures. I'll miss you on the show!" one fan wrote in the comments. Another said, "So sad to hear you are leaving but good luck with your family and future ahead."
Daphne and John are already parents to Philomena, 3, and a son, Jovan, 19 months. Baby #3, Daphne announced on Instagram a while back, is a baby girl.
Despite being successful in many avenues — as an author and TV show host — Daphne's number one love seems to be motherhood. An important part of embracing her role as parent, Daphne admits, is gratitude. "I think you have to be so grateful for any child," Daphne previously told Closer Weekly. "It's a gift and to have a healthy baby is the most incredible thing. I'd love to have more, but if we just have two, I'm happy with that too!"
