Elisabeth Hasselbeck underwent a secret surgery yesterday to the surprise of many Fox & Friends fans.

On Wednesday morning's episode of the Fox News program, Hasselbeck was noticeably absent with Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle sitting in her place.

"In case you were wondering where Elisabeth is today and this week, well, she had some surgery yesterday and she's going to be out for a couple of weeks," co-host Steve Doocy said on the show today. "But she's doing just fine, she's on the mend."

Brian Kilmeade added, "But as you know if you watch the show, she is strong, she is tough and a better athlete than me. We heard from her last night and she said she is feeling good. So, in a short time, she'll be back on the set."

While there's no word on what specific health reason the former View co-host needed to go under the knife for, a Fox News spokesperson told The Wrap of Hasselbeck's surgery, "Elisabeth has asked for all to respect her wishes for privacy in regards to further details at this time."

Meanwhile, Hasselbeck has been silent on Twitter since her last posting on Oct. 10. As for her last Instagram, which she shared on Oct. 6, Hasselbeck posted an inspirational quote that read, "Just because time doesn't stand still, doesn't mean you have to rush. Dare to stand still & see something precious."
