Earlier this year, American TV personality Rachel Campos-Duffy was rumored to be pregnant with her eighth child. Yes! You heard that correct. While it sounds a little hectic for us to be surrounded by eight children, Campos-Duffy is really anticipating her eighth child. She believes women should still pursue their professional dreams even after they become moms. But she says, "don't be afraid to slow down or jump off the train when your heart calls you to tend to things that last — love, marriage, babies, and happy kids."
Rachel is an author and television personality specializing in political punditry, culture and parenting. The 45 years old TV personality had her first shot of fame in 1994 as a cast member on MTV reality series “The Real World: San Francisco”. On the show and in MTV's promotional materials for the show, Campos was often depicted as a passionate Republican, whose heroes included Jack Kemp, and as a Catholic, though she conceded her strict religious upbringing fostered within her a rebellious streak that sometimes brought her into conflict with her parents. Her strong political viewpoints led to conflict with her housemates on more than one occasion.
She completed her undergraduate degree in Economics from Arizona State University and completed graduate degree in International Affairs from University of California – San Diego. She later appeared in the 1998 reality TV show “Road Rules: All Stars” where she met husband Sean Duffy. Rachel and Sean have been married for 17 years now. A former reality TV star, Duffy is now a Congressman. He was the District Attorney of Ashland County and the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin's 7th congressional district.
Rachel Campos-Duffy is a recurring guest host on the ABC daytime talk show “The View”. She competed on-air thrice for hosting the show unfortunately losing all three times. Campos-Duffy was also one of ten Real World alumni who starred in the 2003 film The Wedding Video, a Real World parody centered on the wedding of first season alumnus Norman Korpi. In 2008 Rachel co-hosted the series "Speaking of Women's Health" on the Lifetime Network with the celebrated Florence Henderson.
Rachel writes on the behalf of a wide range of publications including TodayParenting, CNN.com, FOX News Latino, and The Huffington Post, among others. She is a proud member of the Today Show Parenting Team. Along with all this, Rachel is the national spokesperson for The LIBRE Initiative, a non-profit that educates and advocates for the economic empowerment of Hispanics.
With seven children and all her professional work, Rachel Campos-Duffy is definitely a supermom to Evita Pilar, Xavier Jack, Lucia-Belen, John-Paul, Paloma-Pilar, Maria Victoria Margarita and Margarita! Pheww!! That was quite a mouthful!
