About two weeks after Sara Haines became the latest to pass through The Revolving Door of The View to host the third hour of Good Morning America with Michael Strahan, it appears Abby Huntsman has won the sweepstake to replace her.

Huntsman, who now co-hosts Fox & Friends Weekend, is set to replace Sara Haines, who announced her departure from the long-running ABC show last week to join the third hour of Good Morning America.

Huntsman, who is 32 years old, will be a welcome addition to "The View" for conservatives as she provides a second right-leaning voice to the show.

"Abby has lots of fans at ABC and is expected to end up at The View", a source close to the situation told The Hill.

The TV host is set to join ABC's daytime talk show alongside Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Meghan McCain during the upcoming season premiere.

Fox News confirmed to The Hill that this Saturday and Sunday will be Huntsman's final weekend co-hosting "Fox & Friends Weekend".

Huntsman is also the daughter of former Republican presidential candidate Gov. John Huntsman (R-Utah), who is now President Donald Trump's U.S. Ambassador to Russian Federation. "I wasn't done being grateful and pinching myself for just sitting at this table", she said. Huntsman, who is the daughter of Jon Huntsman, the U.S. Ambassador to Russian Federation, would bolster the ranks of young Republicans around "The View's" table, joining Meghan McCain. Also in the running, per reports, was Ana Navarro, a conservative commentator for CNN who frequently guest hosts The View.

She's married and has one daughter.
