A pregnant CNN anchor had an on-air health scare Monday morning when she fainted in the middle of a report.

Poppy Harlow was discussing a survey showing most Americans are dissatisfied with how the War on Terror in the Middle East is going when she began slurring her words.

“Back here in American soil, bad news for the Obama administration. We have this new CNN/ORC poll, which is quite a …” she said, trailing off before going silent off-camera.

Worried viewers tweeted about shocking moment, but Harlow re-appeared shortly after.

“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.”

Hours later, she revealed that her baby remains healthy.

“Update from the hospital — our little girl due this spring is doing just fine,” she tweeted. “Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!”

Harlow, 33, announced in November that she is expecting her first child, a daughter, with husband Sinisa Babcic.

“We could not be more thrilled to have a little girl on the way,” she told TVNewser. “We feel blessed and are excited for the adventure ahead.”
