AceShowbiz - 2019 starts off great for Abby Huntsman and her husband Jeffrey Livingston, who are about to welcome new additions to their little family. "The View" co-host announced on the show on Wednesday, January 2 that she is pregnant with twins, a boy and a girl.
Further explaining the happy news to PEOPLE, she shared that she was surprised to learn that she's expecting two babies, given the fact she does not have any immediate relatives with twins and did not use fertility treatments to conceive. She also revealed that the pregnancy did not kick off with a good start, prompting her to feel there's something wrong with it.
"I knew something was different this time," she told the magazine. "I was actually worried that something was wrong with this pregnancy because I felt sick immediately. I was sick with Isabel, but now until about eight weeks, so I was worried something was wrong." She added, "Now, looking back, it makes sense, because I think the hormones were triple what they would normally be."
Abby wasn't the only one surprised by the twins news because Jeffrey felt the same, though he had a much different reaction. In the interview, the former Fox personality said that her husband of nine years passed out after learning the news.
"I think he saw two sacs in there and I could see it on his face. He turned white, and then when the doctor told us, he fell," she recalled. "Another doctor had to come in, and they were wiping him down with towels and giving him sugar. 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.' "
Abby and Jeffrey, who got married in August 2010, are already parents to daughter Isabel Grace, whom they welcomed in November 2017.
