Sara Haines was in for an extra special birthday surprise on Monday.
While co-hosting The View on her 46th birthday, Haines was surprised by her three little ones, sons Caleb Joseph, 4, and Alec Richard, 7, and daughter Sandra Grace, 5, as well as husband Max Shifrin, as they joined Haines on stage with birthday wishes and a sugar cookie cake.
"What is a birthday without a cake?" says co-host Whoopi Goldberg. "There will be a cake and a surprise guest, please bring them out!"
When Haines sees her kids and husband entering the stage, she claps and screams with excitement, going over to her family to give them all hugs and kisses.

"Were you guys planning this all day? To come bring this for Mom?" Goldberg asks Haines' kids, who adorably nod yes.
"You kept this good secret?" Haines says to her little ones, going on to introduce them to the audience.
When one follower asked, "More babies for you? Or is three enough LOL," Haines replied: "I would love 10 more!!!! But 3 is all I can handle while being my best version for each of them ❤️❤️❤️."
Haines also explained what she feels are the "best" and "worst" parts about being a working mother. "Best part = feeling more energized and confident as a result of my work," she wrote. "Worst part = the guilt of time away from them."
Another follower asked, "How do you balance all the things on your plate?!? You must be superhuman?"
"I'm not...I can promise you that," said Haines. "I have my days where I am unstoppable and so on it. And then the next, I feel overwhelmed. Just doing my best like everyone else."
