Asunción “Sunny” Cummings Hostin (born October 20, 1968) is a lawyer, journalist, and television host from the United States. Hostin is a co-host on ABC‘s morning talk show The View, as well as an ABC News Senior Legal Correspondent and Analyst.

Sunny Hostin’s Weight Loss: The Television Host Underwent Multiple Plastic Surgery Procedures to Maintain Her Physique, Which Also Resulted in Her Losing a Few Extra Pounds!

Sunny Hostin (@sunny) made a major decision to undergo a weight loss transformation for her overweight body in the summer of 2022. The View host underwent a few plastic surgery procedures including breast reduction and lift surgery to maintain her physique, which also might be the main reason for her weight loss body transformation.

She also had liposuction on her chin and waist to look really young, and she has finally spoken out about how she feels after losing some extra weight. Sunny revealed her cosmetic procedures in January 2023 and claimed she has no regrets about changing her appearance. During an interview with People, she said

I thought I would feel shame, like, Oh my God, I’m doing plastic surgery like all these crazy celebrities.’ But I don’t feel shame at all. And I hope sharing my story will help more people. If they’re feeling so body-conscious, the way I was — they can do what they need to do to feel better.

After giving birth to her children, Gabriel and Paloma, whom she shares with her husband, Emmanuel Hostin, the ABC News correspondent realized her body had changed dramatically. Sunny wore a binder or a minimizer bra during her early days on The View to help her clothes fit her chest area. She admitted to having a few emotional moments before red-carpet events due to her wardrobe not fitting properly due to her being overweight.

After years of making special adjustments to her clothes, Sunny Hostin decided to investigate a few options for weight loss. She opened up about her plastic surgery journey five months after the procedure in the hopes of inspiring others to do what makes them happy. She stated,

I look through magazines and Instagram accounts. I always believed, ‘Oh, they must be clean eating.’ No, they’re not — a lot of them are taking something, or they’re getting plastic surgery. It’s their decision to keep it private. But I wanted to be really honest. And I’m so happy.

This isn’t the first time the Girls Trip star has been open about her body in public. Sunny joined The View as a permanent cohost in 2016 for season 20 after working as a legal analyst for Fox News. After a viewer asked if Sunny had undergone weight loss surgery, the TV host took to Twitter to explain why she looked different.  “I’ve lost some weight but not because of the work — I’ve stopped eating sugar and meat,” she tweeted in March 2016. Fans have long admired her sincerity, whether on the popular talk show or on social media.
