Daphne Oz is pregnant again, and The Chew co-host joyfully announced that she had a bun in the oven during a special segment on the cooking show, reported People.
Daughter of TV talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz, Daphne is married to John Jovanovic. They are the proud parents of Philomena Bijou, who is 13-months-old.
To unveil her baby bump, Daphne took advantage of the show’s discussion of secrets.
“This may or may not be something you know about me,” announced Daphne.
She then waved an “I’m pregnant” sign.
“John and I are thrilled for our family of three to become four this fall,” revealed Oz. “Being Philomena’s parents has been the most fun, and we are so grateful and happy to get to have a whole new adventure bringing this little one into the mix!”
But although it’s been “fun,” Daphne has found herself in the position of defending her famous father physician. Most recently, Dr. Oz was challenged by other physicians, who asked Columbia University to fire him from his position, reported E! News.
They criticized his views on genetically modified foods, touting of weight loss supplements that lacked substantial research, and recommendations for alternative health treatments.
“In some instances, I believe unconventional approaches appear to work in some people’s lives,” responded Dr. Oz. “They are often based on long-standing traditions from different cultures that visualize the healing process in very different ways from our Western traditions.”
Most recently, however, Dr. Oz has stopped recommending weight loss supplements after being grilled by a Senate subcommittee for calling unproven remedies “miracles,” as the Inquisitr reported.
Instead, the physician has shifted to a back-to-basics low-carb diet approach that focuses on foods rather than fads.
As for Daphne herself, despite her father’s focus on weight loss, she admitted that she’s struggled in the past to shed excess pounds, reported Fitness.
But after giving birth to her daughter, she figured out a diet and exercise plan that worked. It combines a low-carb weight loss regimen with regular fitness sessions.
“My plate is about protein and vegetables. I focus on lean proteins, like chicken, and lots of fish, like salmon, cod, branzini. I love yogurt for the calcium and protein. I’m going easier on sugar and processed carbs.”
In addition, Daphne makes time to exercise even though it’s hard juggling her time for her daughter with her cooking show career.
“I run about four miles three to four times a week,” she revealed. “I love the Ballet Beautiful videos—they’re intense and strenuous but not hard on your joints. I also love Inhale Yoga with Steve Ross.”
