CO-HOST DAPHNE OZ ANNOUNCES SHE IS EXPECTING HER FIRST CHILD,
ON THE SEASON 3 PREMIERE OF “THE CHEW,” MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 ON ABC
Season 3 of ABC’s Daytime hit “The Chew” kicks off MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 9 at 1:00 p.m., ET (check local listings) with big news.
As each of the show’s co-hosts discussed how they spent their summer vacation, Daphne Oz brought down the house when surprised her co-hosts and the studio audience with the news that she and her husband of three years, John Jovanovic, are expecting their first child. She just completed her first trimester.
Daphne initially talked about an anniversary trip to Italy and France that they took, and mentioned that she wanted to show a fun picture from the summer—then pulled out a strip of three sonogram images. As the audience erupted in cheers and applause, co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly and Carla Hall reacted with delight. 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.
This will also be the first grandchild for Daphne’s parents, Dr. Memhet Oz and Lisa Oz.
