'The Chew' Host Daphne Oz Announces Pregnancy
September 05, 2013
Daphne Oz -- a co-host on ABC's daytime culinary show The Chew and the daughter of talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz -- has revealed she's expecting her first child.
Daphne, 27, announced her pregnancy Thursday during a taping of The Chew's season premiere, which is set to air on Monday.
On the show, Daphne talks about a summer trip to Europe she took with her husband of three years, John Jovanovic, and says she wants to share a photo. She then pulls out a strip of three sonogram images, surprising co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly and Carla Hall.
An ABC spokesperson said of the on-air announcement, "Several hosts leapt to their feet to hug and kiss her, a few shed tears of happiness, while Michael Symon proclaimed that he suspected something when she did not have coffee this morning, and Mario joked that the sonogram looks like him."
It will be the first grandchild for Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa.
