Goldberg’s query got here out of nowhere mid-discussion. The daytime discuss present co-hosts had been deliberating the information on Utah Senator Mitt Romney‘s latest announcement that he had determined to not run for re-election in 2024. The pair then went on to muse about the way forward for the Republican celebration. But about two minutes into the dialogue, Goldberg, 67, turned to Farah Griffin and requested her an surprising query.
“For me, at least, it’s always — the rot has always been there. You cannot have built the country without it. Too much has happened in the country for the rot to have not been there. And it doesn’t have to be Black folks, it’s Native American folks, it’s folks who come from other places. We’ve always had this kind of thing. But it doesn’t not stop us from doing the right thing when people are in need,” Goldberg mentioned.
“And so the toughest thing for me has been to watch the disregard for people—” Then the Sister Act star paused mid-sentence to show to Farah Griffin and ask: “Are you pregnant?”
In full shock, the 34-year-old former Trump aide, who’s now a excessive profile critic of the ex-president, laughed and exclaimed: “No! Oh my God! You can’t say that while my mother-in-law is here! She’s been dying for me to get pregnant.”
“Why would you say that?” Joy Behar, 80, requested. Goldberg replied, “I just got a vibe. I’m so sorry! It just… it was just…”
“Please say it’s not my tummy!” Farah Griffin exclaimed, however later clarified that she and her husband Justin Griffin – whom she married in 2021 – weren’t pregnant. “I’m very open to being pregnant soon. I am not blessed to be pregnant yet, but my husband and I are thinking about it.”
“Are you sure?” Sunny Hostin requested, to which Farah Griffin responded that she was “pretty sure.”
“They’re working on it,” Sara Haines cheekily added earlier than taking a look at Farah Griffin’s mother-in-law and saying: “I’m sorry, earmuffs!”
“Forgive me. I’m just, I just… you have this… I see a glow,” Goldberg defined, and Griffin replied that at dwelling she’d “take a test” to verify. Meanwhile, Haines joked that Farah Griffin ought to identify her firstborn after Goldberg.
“Don’t do that to the baby,” Goldberg joked earlier than profusely apologizing for asking.
Some viewers weren’t too impressed with Goldberg, with one viewer writing on X, formerly known as Twitter: “That’s super rude to ask another woman on live tv. Why not ask while they are preparing for the show beforehand.”
“This is so wrong. Whoopi is a mess,” another person chimed in. “Even if she were pregnant, she would have forced her to announce with that question. She could ask during break or before the start of the show. Such a disgusting behavior.”
Meanwhile, different viewers defended the Ghost actor. “Those of us at a certain age lose our filters,” one consumer reasoned with naysayers. “I’ve blurted out things I would never have said when I was younger and gave a s***. Whoopi gonna be Whoopi. It was a bit rude but oh well.” Another particular person added that Goldberg’s instinct could be proper, “I did the exact same thing to my nephew’s wife at a family wedding in June and three weeks later, we got the confirmation call. Older ladies can tell when someone is pregnant.”
