FNC’s Sandra Smith Announces Pregnancy

Fox News’ Sandra Smith announced she is expecting baby No. 2 during a conversation on air about what pregnant women crave. In a surprising FNC moment, co-host Harris Faulkner asked Sandra, “what do you like to eat when you’re pregnant?”

“I craved citrus and I actually craved chocolate a little bit, mostly salads. Actually, I’m craving them right now because I’m pregnant,” Smith said.

Smith and her husband are expecting the baby “around the end of the year.” They are already parents to a 17-month old.

‘Outnumbered’ Debuts on Fox News

OutnumberedFox News’ new noon panel show “Outnumbered” premiered this afternoon with Tucker Carlson serving as the inaugural “one lucky guy” sitting on a couch next to four of Fox News’ women.

The ensemble cast, which today featured Harris Faulkner, Sandra Smith, Jedediah Bila, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Carlson, led the show discussing the firestorm created this weekend when TMZ leaked an audio tape allegedly featuring the voice of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling telling his girlfriend not to flaunt her associations with African Americans.

The panel pivoted to politics, playing a clip from Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren‘s interview on Sunday’s “This Week,” where she declined to go as far as endorsing Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic presidential nominee. Some other topics covered during the show’s debut included the “Obama Doctrine” for military force; a new study about middle-class Americans struggling; and men and women’s differing views on emotional versus physical cheating.

Like fellow Fox roundtable program “The Five,” “Outnumbered” featured no guests, with the five hosts’ discussion serving as the main component of the show.

In Profile: Lou Dobbs, Sandra Smith

In both instances I became so consumed with everything I was doing, I rationalized that I didn’t have time to exercise and my weight really ballooned up. My life has been a course of gaining weight and fighting it off.”
