Fox News personality Kayleigh McEnany has returned to her co-hosting duties on the network’s midday “Outnumbered” program after a short absence. McEnany had taken a bit of time off after she had her second child, and noted as much in a tweet on Monday.
“I’m so excited to return to Outnumbered tomorrow at 12 pm ET with Harris Faulkner and Emily Compagno. Blake & Nash are ready to watch their mommy,” she wrote.
The show itself tweeted from its account: “TOMORROW ON OUTNUMBERED: @kayleighmcenany is back on the couch with her DREAM TEAM.”
Last month, the former Trump administration press secretary announced she had written a book, “Serenity in the Storm: Living through Chaos by Leaning on Christ.”
On Amazon, the description of the book states: “Kayleigh McEnany brings to life the key cultural and political issues of our time, from the fall of Afghanistan to the Supreme Court’s abortion decision, analyzing world events through the lens of faith and providing readers with Serenity in the Storm. Our world, without question, is experiencing aberrational times. The ravages and life-altering realities of COVID-19 that I worked through as White House press secretary were just the start of it. What followed was a series of history-defining events. From the fall of Afghanistan to the nationwide crime wave, we’ve all endured painful images of death, destruction, and chaos.”
“Meanwhile, radical teachings on gender and race have infiltrated our nation’s schools, poisoning the minds of our children—all at a time when our country feels more divided than ever before. Along with these twenty-first-century realities can come a feeling of despair and discouragement. Indeed, I hear it all the time as I crisscross the country: Americans feel disheartened and seek hope. Serenity in the Storm provides that hope. Despite our challenges, there is cause for great optimism for men and women of faith. In Afghanistan, the underground church is thriving. On the key issues of life and liberty, the Supreme Court of the United States has delivered enormous and consequential victories. In our schools, voters have spoken unmistakably against the insidious doctrines of critical race and gender theory. There is no doubt that God is at work as He hears the prayers of the faithful!” the description added.
“Taking a similar format to my New York Times bestselling book, For Such a Time as This, I analyze our domestic and international challenges through the lens of faith. Though we have lived through dark times and unsettled waters, the storms we face have prompted many great leaders to rise to the moment and have left a yearning in the human heart for a Savior, Jesus Christ, who is walking alongside us every step of the way,” it concluded.
Last month, the panel of “Outnumbered” announced the birth of McEnany’s second child, a son. As the panel celebrated the newborn, co-host Emily Compagno quoted James 1:17, saying, “every good and perfect gift from above, coming down from the Father of the Heavenly lights.”
The segment showed a photograph of McEnany holding baby Nash while kissing his forehead with her husband, Sean Gilmartin, kissing hers. A separate photograph showed Blake sitting crisscrossed on the floor with her new brother.
She announced her pregnancy on the show in June.
“My husband, @GilmartinSean, and I are THRILLED to announce that I am almost 4 months pregnant with our second child, making Baby Blake a big sister. God has given us another incredible blessing,” the former Trump White House press secretary tweeted at the time. “Thank you to @FoxNews @OutnumberedFNC for allowing me to share this wonderful news!”
McEnany and her Fox News co-hosts have been dominating the ratings in the cable news industry for months, while the network itself has been the leader for years.
In late November, the show broke into the top 20 programs in all of cable television this week, besting every program on rival networks CNN and MSNBC.
