They may duke it out over hot topics every morning, but the ladies of The View are like a family – and they’re all excited for the newest member of the clan to arrive.

“We’re having another baby soon!” Joy Behar, 66, told PEOPLE Wednesday at Woman’s Day magazine’s 6th Annual Red Dress Awards, referring to co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck expecting her third child.

“It’s like a family thing,” added Behar, who hosted the event, which benefits the Larry King Cardiac foundation. “I’ve been there for 12 years and all the kids come up to the show. I’m like a grandma.”

Still, the comedian couldn’t help but crack wise about the mom-to-be, “[Elisabeth] is getting a little puffy and we like to see that,” she joked.

While she hasn’t started doting on Hasselbeck, 31, yet, she may be bringing her home cooked meals later on in her pregnancy.

“People don’t know this, but I’m a domestic goddess. I cook and I collect pots,” she says, then quipped: “I don’t smoke pot – I collect them. I’m not Michael Phelps”
