At least now when Elisabeth Hasselbeck gets overly emotional, she can blame her hormones.

The View's resident conservative cohost announced on air this morning that she and former football-playing hubby Tim Hasselbeck are expecting their third child together.

"We are thankful for such great news and will begin planning our zone defense strategy immediately," she said.

While there's no word yet on the pending tot's sex, Hasselbeck said she was due in August.

"We were thoroughly happy with the surprise of it," she added. "I didn't even know for two months."

Instead, the GOP's go-to cheerleader said she was chalking up her fatigue to election fever.

"I was tired, I was nauseous, I thought I was worn out from the whole procedure. No—I was knocked up and didn't realize it!"

The 31-year-old Viewer and her 30-year-old mister tied the knot in 2002. They have two children together, 3-year-old Grace and 15-month-old Taylor Thomas.

In addition to the stork delivery, Hasselbeck is set to release her first book later this year, The G-Free Diet: A Gluten Free Survival Guide.
