Ainsley: “Wait! Are you allowed to say that!” Oops! Early this morning, Fox & Friends co-anchor Carlson Tucker revealed that his vacationing co-host birthday girl Anna Kooiman got engaged–before she was ready to disclose the news to her F&F fans, seemingly.
As F&F began today, Tucker welcomed fill-in co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt to the curvy couch: Explaining Anna’s absence, Tucker remarked, “Our friend, Anna Kooiman, is out today. It’s her birthday, and she got engaged! So, congratulations!”
Looking at Tucker in utter disbelief, Ainsley exclaimed, “Wait! Are you allowed to say that! I think she was going to tell everyone!”
Putting his hands up in the air, Tucker sheepishly answered, “I don’t know! I just did!” Chuckling, a chagrined Tucker continued, “I’m sorry! I’m excited: I can’t help it! She’s in Australia right now. Anyway, congratulations, Anna!”
Indeed. Congratulations, Anna! And, Happy birthday!
[Author’s aside: Even though Anna has not revealed her engagement to her F&F fans, she did post some of her vacation pictures in Sydney [1, 2]. Seemingly, Anna plans to tie the knot with housemate Mark.]
Update: Sorry, Mark: Anna is engaged to an Aussie named Tim. F&FW – 02/08/14 (@ 8:32 a.m. ET).
