Oops! The View's Sunny Hostin received a disruptive phone call from her son in the middle of the show's broadcast on Monday, October 17.

The awkward interruption occurred during yet another heated political debate between cohosts Whoopi Goldberg and Alyssa Farah Griffin — who constantly argue over their clashing viewpoints.

As The Color Purple star butted heads with the former White House Director of Strategic Communications, Hostin's phone began to ring on the table.

"Hello, hello, hello," stated Goldberg as she looked over at Hostin to acknowledge the disruptance.

"See who it is," the mother-of-two directed Goldberg — who pointed at her screen from the other end of the panel.

"Who is it? You know I can't read," the 66-year-old humorously replied, before the ABC News analyst read her son's name on the screen, stating, "Gabriel Hostin."

Goldberg seemed completely uninterested by the phone call and continued on with her and Griffin's heavy political banter.

Hostin appeared embarrassed after the situation, silencing her phone with flushed cheeks and a sheepish expression.

'THE VIEW': WHOOPI GOLDBERG SILENCES CONSERVATIVE COSTAR ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN DURING TENSE POLITICAL DISCUSSION

The isn't the first time Hostin's 19-year-old son was brought up in conversation during one of The View's morning shows.

Last month, Griffin fired a shot at the 53-year-old analyst during a parenting-based discussion about teenage co-ed sleepovers.

"There's a couple of thoughts on this, but I'm asking many of you, where do you fall on this?" asked Goldberg as she jump-started the conversational debate.

"That's a spin-the-bottle episode waiting to happen," Hostin replied, while Sara Haines added, "That just feels a little too ripe with opportunity."

Although most of the talk show hosts seemed to be in mutual agreement, Joy Behar chalked up a different viewpoint, stating, "there's a lot of denial with mothers and fathers these days. They think their kids are not having sex, and they are."

Hostin immediately clapped back, responding, "mine aren't," to which Griffin laughed in disbelief, adding, "I've seen pictures of your son," while Behar impolitely waved her off and told her to "get with the program."

The uncomfortably aggressive moment was halted when Goldberg cut to commercial break, but not before the cameras portrayed Hostin laughing ignorantly as she brushed off her cohosts' comments.

The Sun reported Hostin's awkward interruption and parenting conversations.
