Meghan McCain announces shes pregnant, self-isolating and appearing remotely on The View
“The View” host Meghan McCain has announced she’s pregnant and will go into self-isolation immediately “for the safety of my baby and myself.”
McCain, 35, announced the pregnancy news with her husband, Ben Domenech, on Instagram Sunday, eight months after opening up about her miscarriage.
“My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find I’m pregnant,” McCain wrote. “Although this isn’t how I expected to announce my pregnancy, both we and our families are excited to share the news with you.”
McCain said she will continue her role on the “The View” remotely.
“Starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As I result, I will be appearing on ‘The View’ from home via satellite. I’m fortunate, my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-hosts to work remotely.”
“View” co-host Sunny Hostin was one of the first to comment, writing, “Congratulations!!!!” Tulsi Gabbard, a member of the House of Representatives and former presidential candidate, wrote, “I’m crying for you right now. So so so happy for you, Meghan.”
McCain has been married to conservative pundit Domenech since 2017. In a February New York Times op-ed discussing her miscarriage, McCain wrote, “To the end of my days I will remember this child.”
“I am not hiding anymore…Women need to be able to speak about this publicly, without the stigma and the lack of knowledge that pervades the issue,” she wrote. “I have love for all the women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying and nursing joy within us, until the day the joy was over. You are not alone.”
