If you thought you heard Megyn Kelly drop an F-bomb on her show Monday night when introducing Mike Huckabee, yep, you did.

The Fox News host got a little tripped up on Huckabee’s last name.

“Joining me now, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who’s the host of F**kabee — Huckabee!” she said.

Huckabee, shown on a split screen, cracked the faintest of smiles when he heard it.

Folks on Twitter giggled, but some were more concerned for Kelly’s welfare.

“@megynkelly Are you all right? You said “Tenator Sed Cruz,” and mixed Huckabee and Fox, in well--an embarrassing word. Hope you're okay,” tweeted @Writer61.

Later in the show she apologized, noting that the mistake was getting a lot of attention on Twitter.

She quoted a tweet “from some nice man named Sean who said ‘Megyn you’re a delight to watch and gave a stoic performance after your slip up with Governor Huckabee’s name.’

“I thought I was stoic too – I have the heart of a 12-year-old boy.”
