Elisabeth Hasselbeck Celebrates First Anniversary on ‘Fox & Friends’

F and FFox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck celebrated one year with the morning show this morning.

Hasselbeck’s co-hosts came with gifts. Steve Doocy gave her a framed picture of the New York Times advertisement that promoted her joining the show. Brian Kilmeade made things sticky with his gift—a giant pack of gum. “Brian Kilmeade…you are not giving me gum,” Hasseleck said to Kilmeade, who apparently has an affliction against gum chewing.

“Time flies when you have fun,” Hasselbeck tells Parade.com. “And really with the incredible team that Fox & Friends have been to me, I could not be more thrilled.”
