“Words can’t express how much this means, it’s kind of like a dream come true that I never saw coming,” Welteroth said as she was welcomed by her co-hosts.

On Monday morning, Welteroth and Kloots appeared on “CBS This Morning” to tease their first official episode of “The Talk” as co-hosts later in the afternoon.

“It 100 per cent feels like the first day of school,” Welteroth said, describing her excitement. “Except we’re going to see Gayle King, on Zoom.”

Kloots said, “I am feeling so great. I barely slept because I also had those first day of school jitters.”

Welteroth, the bestselling author of More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are No Matter What They Say, and Kloots, a former Broadway dancer and Radio City Rockette, were both announced as the show’s new co-hosts last month.

“I am beyond excited and grateful for the opportunity to join the phenomenal women of ‘The Talk’. They have each made me feel right at home alongside them on this incredible platform that cultivates connection, kindness and understanding when we all need it most,” Welteroth said at the time.

Kloots added, “From the very first time I guest co-hosted on ‘The Talk’, I knew I was among a very special group of people.”

The two are replacing co-hosts Marie Osmond and Eve, who both said goodbye to the show last year.

“The Talk” airs weekdays at 2 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
