How Old Is ‘The View’ Alum Meghan McCain?
Meghan McCain has been busy with her new writing gig for the Daily Mail and promoting her new book “Bad Republican”. Throughout the Audible memoir, the former TV co-host gives details on growing up in politics, her relationship with her father, the late Senator John McCain, and her four years at The View. McCain welcomed her first child, daughter Liberty, with husband Ben Domenech in 2020 and has been reveling in motherhood. She celebrated a birthday last month and fans are wondering how many candles may have been on the cake.
Meghan McCain has back-to-back birthday and anniversary celebrations
McCain celebrated her 37th birthday on Oct. 23 and is looking forward to her four-year anniversary with Domenech this month. The View alum previously revealed that she was never one to be marriage-minded and enjoyed her single life.
“I waited. I was like ‘If I don’t get married, I’m cool,’ ” McCain said in a 2019 online segment of The View’s “Ask Me Anything”. “Like, marriage seems kind of like prison… I don’t know if I want to do it.”
The “Bad Republican” author did a complete 180 when she met Domenech and praised him for being such a supportive husband.
“Honestly, Ben is my rock and he is amazing and he’s made me so much smarter, tougher, stronger,” McCain gushed. “He’s opened my heart. He’s the only man I ever met that didn’t want to change me.”
‘The View’ alum wishes she had children ‘sooner’
Now that McCain has over a year of parenthood in tow, she’s ready give Liberty some siblings. She recently shared her regret of not starting a family at a younger age.
“I want 30 more children,” McCain told Fox News Digital. “I wish I had started having children earlier. The biggest regret of my life is not having children sooner.”
Making the decision to leave The View and now focusing on other professional pursuits, the former Fox News personality is grateful for more flexible platforms. McCain’s book on Audible is a perfect example of how she’s embracing a variety of mediums on which to communicate with the public.
“I just don’t have the kind of time that I used to,” she remarked. “I’m in the car and grocery store, I’m going for a walk with my daughter and I can put my earbuds in. … I just wanted these stories to be as easily accessible as possible to people.”
Meghan McCain initially wasn’t sure about having kids
McCain has frequently expressed her joy on becoming a mom, yet admitted she wasn’t always on board with having kids.
“I can’t believe how much I like motherhood, honestly,” she told People in February 2021. “I was really back and forth about whether or not I was even going to do it, and I can’t believe how obsessed with it I am.”
The View alum felt apprehensive about starting a family and was nervous during her pregnancy. Yet after Liberty arrived, McCain started thinking having more children.
“I feel like the universe is laughing at me, because I was so scared of having kids and so reluctant and so on the fence about it,” McCain said. “Even when I was pregnant I was like, ‘I don’t know, we’ll see how this goes.’ As soon as I feel recovered, I would really love to have more kids.”
