The View added a guy to the gab on Monday: 2-month, 2-days-old Taylor Thomas Hasselbeck, whose mother, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, returned to the ABC daytime show with her baby in her arms.

“I thought I’d bring a little testosterone to the table today,” said Hasselbeck, as Taylor alternated between being wide-eyed in his new environment and crying like a baby for co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd (Barbara Walters was said to be on assignment).

“He’s huge,” she admitted. “He’s almost like 12 pounds, I think. He’s just constantly on me. I call myself the Dairy Queen.”

Hasselbeck also said that Taylor bites her boobs, which, she also admitted, “are huge.”

Having announced her pregnancy in April, Hasselbeck, 30, began her maternity leave on Oct. 23.

Taylor was born Nov. 9, 2007. Dad is Hasselbeck’s husband, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Tim Hasselbeck.

The couple also have another child, Grace, 2, whom her mother described on Monday’s View as “such a good big sister.”

As for Hasselbeck’s very fit shape, Shepherd said, “You don’t even look like you were pregnant.”

“Wear prints,” Hasselbeck said, revealing her secret.
