It’s going to be a boy… and a girl! The View co-host Abby Huntsman took to the talk show on Wednesday, Jan. 2 to reveal she’s expecting twins with her husband, Jeffrey Livingston.
“We are pregnant, my husband and I. And we’re having a girl… and a boy,” the 32-year-old confessed. The couple is already parents to a 1-year-old daughter, Isabel. Watch her announcement below!
Abby then cracked a joke about how her co-host Joy Behar seemingly predicted her pregnancy. “The first day I started on the show she said, ‘Honey, you’re too skinny. You just wait. Everyone who gets on the show, you’re gonna get fat real quick.’ And you were spot on!” she joked.
She also thanked the table for being supportive during the first three months of her pregnancy — especially Whoopi Goldberg. “Everyone at this table’s been so supportive, but Whoopi has these candies on here and I was so sick for the past three months — as they all knew — so I’m sorry if I haven’t totally been myself every day, but you always hand me your candies just to help me feel better,” Abby shared.
Abby proceeded to tell the funny story of her husband’s reaction when they found out they were expecting. “When the doctor told us [it was twins], my husband fainted, which was just classic,” she quipped. “I think he saw two sacs in there and I could see it on his face. He turned white, and then when the doctor told us, he fell. Another doctor had to come in, and they were wiping him down with towels and giving him sugar. I was sitting there with my feet still in the straps. I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous. I’m the one that has to physically do this.'”
In an interview with People, Abby gushed over how excited she is for her little girl to become a big sister. “She just turned 1, and to think you’re gonna be a big sister in just a few months, it’s crazy,” she shared of Isabel. “But you know what? I think it helps you. I’m one of seven kids, and I love being around a bunch of siblings because I think it teaches you independence, and it teaches you how to grow up quickly and also just be a good friend and be a good sister.”
On The View, Abby acknowledged her growing family even more. “I’m going to have three kids under 18 months in our apartment in NYC,” she shared. “So any twin moms out there, any parents, please give me any advice you have because I know nothing about this.” You’re going to be a great mom-of-three, Abby!
