Elisabeth is pregnant; Roseanne suggested as co-host

More news from The View... Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck announced this morning that she is pregnant with her second child. "Like, I'm totally three months pregnant," Hasselbeck said on today's show. "I figured that we're going to be lonely without you," she said to fellow host Rosie O'Donnell. "So, Tim and I thought we should get busy and maybe make a little co-host." Hasselbeck and her husband, football quarterback Tim Hasselbeck, will welcome the baby in November. The couple have a two-year-old daughter, Grace, and don't plan to find out the new baby's gender until the birth. ABC released the news in a statement just prior to the airing of this morning's show. In other View news, sources say Roseanne Barr is reportedly the top contender to take Rosie O'Donnell's spot on the show next year, though Barr's rep denies the story. "She's a piece of work, she's a character, she says what's on her mind and she's funny," says an insider. Barr avoided directly answering the question when asked by Larry King last week. "I'm not looking for the job," she told the CNN host. "Well, I want $10 million, like Rosie." Since O'Donnell announced her plans to leave the show last week, several big names have been circulating as possible replacements, including Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Kathie Lee Gifford, Connie Chung, Bette Midler and Kathy Griffin.
