Elisabeth Hasselbeck has revealed the name of her newborn son: Taylor Thomas Hasselbeck.

Hasselbeck, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” called the daytime talk show Monday to announce the name. The baby was born Friday at an Arizona hospital. He weighed 7 pounds, 15 ounces.

The 30-year-old Hasselbeck — typically chipper but sounding tired — said she was in labor for what seemed like “four or five thousand hours.”

She began a 2 1/2-month maternity leave Oct. 23. Her husband, Tim Hasselbeck, is a backup quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals.

The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Grace, has been showering Taylor with attention — and trying to feed him Goldfish crackers, she said.

Has the conservative Hasselbeck registered Taylor as a Republican?

“I delivered him on a treadmill while watching ... President Bush,” she joked.
