The View's Elisabeth Hasselbeck has declared that a shared loved of football brings her family together.

Speaking to Celebrity Baby Scoop, the talkshow host revealed that she and husband Tim, who played the sport professionally, balance their busy schedules so they can watch weekly NFL games with their three children.

"I 'heart' football and always have," she said. "I watched it as a kid with my dad, watched Tim play all through college, through the NFL, and now as a family."

The star added that she believes that by encouraging her children to play football, they will learn how to follow an established set of rules.

"Our basic rule number one is have some fun… We believe - and witness every day - that our kids have the most fun in safe, known boundaries. So we show them the line of 'no' and then they can play confidently within the rules."

Hasselbeck further explained that she and her spouse use the tenets of the game while trying to plan their daily routine.

She concluded: "Our work schedules are intense in character, but flexible in schedule outside of the live hours we are on camera. Tim and I huddle up every night to game plan the schedule for the next day."

It was previously reported that Hasselbeck has joined ABC's Good Morning American as a special contributor.
