2019 is sure to be eventful for "The View" co-host Abby Huntsman.

The 32-year-old revealed on Wednesday that she is pregnant with twins, a happy surprise that left her husband on the floor in shock. 

The former Fox News personality, who joined "The View" in August, is already mom to 13-month-old daughter Isabel Grace.

She told People magazine that she does not have any immediate relatives with twins and did not use fertility treatments to conceive, so she was surprised to learn she was expecting two babies. 

“I knew something was different this time,” Huntsman told People. “I was actually worried that something was wrong with this pregnancy because I felt sick immediately. I was sick with Isabel, but not until about eight weeks, so I was worried something might have been wrong.”

She said husband Jeffrey Livingston was floored by the news – literally. 

“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. Another doctor had to come in, and they were wiping him down with towels and giving him sugar,” Huntsman 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.’ “

She added that she is feeling “a mix of emotions” over having twins but she is “very excited” and “so grateful.”

The TV host shared the happy news on Twitter, posting a link to her interview with People. 

She revealed her co-host Meghan McCain has been supportive throughout her pregnancy. 

“Meghan is one of my best friends, so she was one of the first people I called after I left the doctor, and I was really just overwhelmed,” Huntsman said. “She was so thrilled because her grandma’s a twin, it runs in her family, so she has sent me books about twins. She’s like, ‘My mom always wanted me to have twins,’ so she’s really helped me mentally get through it.”
