The question shocked all the ladies at the table and prompted many follow-ups for both Whoopi and Alyssa
The ladies of the daytime show were discussing Utah Sen. Mitt Romney's decision not to run for re-election in 2024 and the direction of the Republican party when, about two minutes in, Goldberg, 67, paused to ask an unexpected question.
"For me, at least, it’s always — the rot has always been there. You cannot have built the country without it. Too much has happened in the country for the rot to have not been there. And it doesn’t have to be Black folks, it’s Native American folks, it’s folks who come from other places. We’ve always had this kind of thing. But it doesn’t not stop us from doing the right thing when people are in need," she began.
"And so the toughest thing for me has been to watch the disregard for people—" then turning to co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin and asking, "Are you pregnant?"
"No! Oh my God!" Farah Griffin, 34, laughed in shock. "You can't say that while my mother-in-law is here! She’s been dying for me to get pregnant."

"Why would you say that?" Joy Behar, 80, asked.
"I just got a vibe," the show’s longtime co-host replied. "I’m so sorry! It just… it was just…"
"Please say it's not my tummy!" Farah Griffin said, later adding, "I’m very open to being pregnant soon. I am not blessed to be pregnant yet, but my husband and I are thinking about it."
"Are you sure?" Sunny Hostin asked.
"I'm pretty sure," Farah Griffin— who married husband Justin Griffin in 2021— replied.
Sara Haines chimed in, "They're working on it," before looking at Farah Griffin's mother-in-law and adding, "I'm sorry, earmuffs!"
"Forgive me. I’m just, I just… you have this… I see a glow," Goldberg repeated.
"I’ll take a test when I get home just to be sure," Farah Griffin said, while Haines joked she should name her firstborn "Whoopi."
"Don’t do that to the baby," Goldberg laughed. "But please forgive me, please forgive me."
