View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck, 30, was happy that her 2-year-old daughter Grace is not having much success with potty-training, as her diapers saved the day when Elisabeth experienced one of the unpleasant side effects of pregnancy — urinary incontinence — over the weekend. Due with her second child on November 11th, Elisabeth remarked,
Something happened to me this weekend, it’s so embarrassing, I probably shouldn’t even say it, but I’m sure other moms out there have had it happen, I mean, I’m hoping! We had to go out to New Jersey to go to our storage unit. This is my second pregnancy and I’ve been having a little, you know, bladder control issue going on. When I laugh…a little tinkle comes out!
So we were [stuck in traffic] in the Lincoln Tunnel forever, I kind of had to go when we left — tons of traffic. We get to the storage unit — all of a sudden it was like 0-60. It was sort of a medium-pee situation where I was going to have to go, to ‘I’m going in two seconds, the floodgates are open.’
So I reach in the backseat of the car and pull two Pampers out of Grace’s bag. So she says, ‘Are you taking my diapers, Mommy?’ ‘Yes I am, Grace!’ I went in our storage unit…so I’m in our storage unit, peeing in Grace’s diapers. I went through two Pampers, would have gone through three but I had to leave her one just in case! It was awful! Those things work, okay?
And I think she needs to work on the potty-training? It’s me!
Earlier today, Elisabeth showed her baby belly to the audience.
