"Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now. So thankful to our amazing CNN team," Poppy wrote on Twitter yesterday. "Update from the hospital — our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!"
Earlier on Monday, Poppy suddenly fainted while delivering a report on Americans' views on the War on Terror in the Middle East. "Back here in American soil, bad news for the Obama administration. We have this new CNN/ORC poll, which is quite a …" she said before slurring her words and falling silent.
The mom-to-be returned on-air just moments later to explain the incident to her concerned viewers. "For all of you on twitter who are asking if I'm okay, thank you so much," she said during the broadcast. "I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine. We're going to take a quick break. We'll be right back."
