Elisabeth Hasselbeck will return to ABC’s “The View” on Monday, and she’ll bring along her infant son, Taylor Thomas.
Elisabeth, 30, has been on maternity leave from the popular New York-based daytime talk show since October 23rd.
She gave birth to Taylor Thomas on November 9th at an Arizona hospital. Her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, is a quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals. The couple have a 2-year-old daughter, Grace.
“I miss my Republican pal,” said co-host Joy Behar.
Co-hosts of “The View” also include Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd.
Elisabeth is “never shy about expressing her view, so `Hot Topics’ will be getting a whole lot hotter — especially with the upcoming presidential election,” ABC said.
