2019 is already off to a shocking start for ‘The View’s’ co-host, Abby Huntsman.
The adored 32-year-old co-host told the shared with PEOPLE that she pregnant, again, just 13 months after she welcomed her first child, Isabel, in November 2017.
But the shock wasn’t that she was pregnant again, but rather that she was pregnant with twins!
Abby was stunned when she learned the news that she was pregnant with twins, but she admitted that she thought something might be wrong. She shared with PEOPLE that she was “actually worried that something was wrong with this pregnancy because I felt sick immediately.” With her first pregnancy, she didn’t experience morning sickness until she was at least 8 weeks.
Thankfully, nothing was wrong with Abby! She was pregnant with twins rather than experiencing complications! When Abby went to the doctor, she admitted that she was concerned. But now she says, “Looking back, it makes sense because I think the hormones were triple what they would normally be.”
Abby was also surprised because she didn’t have a history of twins in her family. When she shared the news with her parents, they laughed in disbelief.
Abby’s husband, Jeffrey Livingston, did far more than laugh - he fainted!
Abby confessed that after she and her husband learned the news, her husband fainted in the room. She added, “I think he saw two sacs in there and I could see it on his face,' she unveiled about the moments leading up to the fall. 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.”
Abby revealed that she thought it was ridiculous but also laughed. She said, “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.’”
Even though Abby and Jeffrey are shocked to have gotten pregnant so quickly, let alone with twins, they are “very excited and grateful!” Congratulations are in order to the parents-to-be and big-sister-to-be, Isabel!
