When she returned to the broadcast, the 33-year-old reassured viewers who had taken to Twitter to voice their concern.

"For all of you on Twitter who are asking if I'm OK, thank you so much," Harlow said on air. "I got a little hot and I passed out for a moment. I am fine. We're going to take a quick break. We'll be right back."

The 33-year-old, who is expecting her first child with husband Sinisa Babcic this spring, was taken to the hospital after the episode.

"Thank you all for your concern and messages! I am ok! Passed out briefly and am with the doctor now. So thankful to our amazing CNN team," she tweeted, adding, "Update from the hospital -- our little girl due this spring is doing just fine. Was a scare but we are both ok. Thank you all so much!
