The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck Taking Maternity Leave

Posted on

Elisabeth Hasselbeck plans to go on maternity leave next month, a spokesman for The View says.

Hasselback, 30, who announced her pregnancy in April, intends to work right up to her due date. She plans to leave on Nov. 8 or 9, ABC spokesman Karl Nilsson confirmed. Celebrity guest hosts will fill in for her.

“I figured that we’re going to be lonely without (former co-host Rosie O’Donnell),” Hasselbeck joked at the time of the announcement. “So, (husband) Tim and I thought we should get busy and maybe make a little co-host.”

The couple also have a 2-year-old daughter, Grace.
