And on The Five...
One thing we know about Ainsley is that she's a morning person!
She started at Fox News on overnight shifts and until earlier this week, was the co-host of Fox and Friends First, which starts at 5:00am ET.
You've also seen the South Carolina native on Fox and Friends Weekend over the years and she's covered big stories like last summer's Charleston church shooting and the 2009 Fort Hood terror attack.
Ainsley has been on maternity leave since late last year after welcoming a baby daughter, Hayden.
"There are no words. Dreams can come true. This is truly a moment for me," she said, thanking Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes for the opportunity to join Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade on the highest-rated cable news morning show.
Catch Ainsley's official debut on Monday, February 29th at 6:00am ET.
