WATCH: CNN Anchor Poppy Harlow Passes Out on Air

CNN anchor Poppy Harlow passed out while anchoring a live broadcast Monday morning. She was not on screen, but began to slur her words as she read a graphic, before going quiet.

After a few moments of silence, CNN cut to a commercial. When they returned, Harlow, who is pregnant, told viewers she got a bit hot and passed out for a moment. She was later replaced by Christine Romans.

Harlow updated concerned viewers with a message on Twitter, saying she is with the doctor and is OK:

The 33-year-old Minnesota native is expecting her first child, a daughter, with her husband Sinisa Babsic, according to Ad Week. She is due in the spring.

“We could not be more thrilled to have a little girl on the way,” Harlow told Ad Week’s TVNewser. “We feel blessed and are excited for the adventure ahead.”

I noticed Poppy when you showed President Obama video about Trump wouldn’t let birth certificate issue go. Jeffrey and Buck started saying that was then and going back but they don’t understand I guess they turn right around and start going back on past issues. I’m a non bias person so just be non bias and not a hypocrites. I now yall CNN has video to show Jeffrey and Buck hypocrisy on the issue
