Sara Haines has revealed on a recent episode of The View that she walks around naked in front of her children, though the revelation shocked some.

The American presenter - known for being a co-host of the ABC daytime talk show - was covering a Hot Topics segment about a principal in Tallahassee, Florida, who resigned after showing Michelangelo's David nude sculpture to her students after some parents called it 'pornography'.

Hope Carrasquilla's time at Tallahassee Classical School in Leon County came to an end following complaints about the art lesson.

The school is required to teach sixth graders about Renaissance art, which included learning about Michelangelo’s sculpture 'David', the 'Creation of Adam' fresco painting, and Boticelli's 'Birth of Venus'.

Created between the years of 1501 and 1504, the statue is described as a symbol of the strength and independence of the Florentines.

Three parents complained that the lesson upset their children, with two saying they wished they'd been notified beforehand and the third claiming the lesson was pornographic.

After discussing the topic on the view, Joy Behar, who was filling in for an absent Whoopi Goldberg, asked the panel: "Why is this suddenly a problem and what if they photoshop a jockstrap on the image?"

To which Haines replied: "The part that upsets me about this is the shame we are teaching kids about their bodies.

"They are born with penises, vaginas, fingers, eyeballs, toes — they should all be treated the same.

"I understand empowering your child to keep things private in who you show those to.

"But literally, when we wonder why kids fall victim to body image and everything else, we’ve taught them to hide themselves, especially girls."

The co-host said it took her 'years' to be comfortable in her own skin.

"I grew up in a religious household where it was like, don’t have sex, it’s a sin, God won’t love you, don’t do it," she told the group.

"I put my lotions on, my kids have seen my body."

To which a shocked Sunny Hostin asked: "Your kids have seen your tatas?"

The mum of three shamelessly replied: "Absolutely. They still — they ask if there’s milk in there."

Commenting on the video, one viewer thought: "Funny how we live in a culture literally soaked in smut but the mere mention of family nudity creeps people out.

"Apparently viewing and discussing sex/nudity is fine so long as it is all about someone else."
