ABC says Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be back on “The View” on Oct. 19.

Hasselbeck has been off the daytime talk show since Aug. 7–two days before she gave birth to her third child, Isaiah Timothy. She’s married to former NFL player Tim Hasselbeck.

Since then, her only contact with viewers was last Thursday, when she phoned “The View” to chat on-air with fellow hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Sherri Shepherd.

During Hasselbeck’s maternity leave, numerous guests have filled in. Upcoming subs include “The Hills” star Heidi Montag, former “View” co-host Lisa Ling, “Ugly Betty” star Ana Ortiz, newly married TV reality star Khloe Kardashian and “Big Bang Theory” star Kaley Cuoco.
