In a moment that left viewers and co-hosts alike in astonishment, Whoopi Goldberg, during a live taping of "The View," candidly inquired if co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin was expecting a child. The unexpected question, which came amidst a discussion on the show, led to a mix of shock, laughter, and a swift return to the topic at hand.

The episode, aired on September 14, 2023, saw Goldberg suddenly divert from the ongoing debate to ask Farah Griffin, "Are you pregnant?" The co-host, taken aback, responded with a mix of surprise and humor, "No! Oh my god! You can't say that when my mother-in-law is here, who's been dying for me to get pregnant. Why, do I look pregnant?"

Goldberg, known for her candid nature, justified her query by saying, "Yes … I just got a vibe." She further added, "I’m so sorry." Farah Griffin, while laughing off the unexpected moment, mentioned she's "not blessed to be pregnant yet" but is "very open to being pregnant soon." The light-hearted exchange concluded with Farah Griffin jesting, "I’ll take a test when I get home just to be sure," before the panel resumed their political discussion.

The episode also touched upon other political topics, including speculations and opinions about Vice President Kamala Harris's role in the upcoming elections. However, it was Goldberg's unforeseen question that stole the limelight and became the talk of the town.

Social media was quick to react to the unexpected on-air moment. While some found humor in the situation, others felt the question was inappropriate, especially for live television. One user commented, "Can we normalize not asking people if they are pregnant? There are a variety of reasons someone might not want anyone to know if they are or are not pregnant." Another added, "That's super rude to ask another woman on live TV. Why not ask while they are preparing for the show beforehand?"

However, some defended Goldberg's spontaneous nature. A viewer noted, "I looked at her a little longer today and thought the same thing. She's glowing. That could be for many different reasons though."

Alyssa Farah Griffin, who tied the knot with Justin Griffin in November 2021, has been a prominent figure on "The View." While the episode will be remembered for its unexpected twist, it also underscores the unpredictable nature of live television and the candidness that often comes with it.
