What did Meghan McCain say about Liberty Sage?
McCain is the most surprised at how much she is loving being a mother. The daytime co-host had expressed on the show on numerous occasions she didn’t know if she was going to have kids. However, after meeting her baby and bonding with her for the last couple of months, Liberty is helping her understand life.
“My baby Liberty is two months old tonight,” McCain shared in a tweet on November 28. “I am not a poet nor an artist so I cannot fully express the ecstasy of motherhood. However, I will say having a daughter answers every existential and ontological question a human being confronts in this wild life.”
Although McCain has been private about details, she has shared moments with her followers on social media. A couple of days before the last tweet, she had claimed she was surprised by motherhood.
“The magic of new motherhood is truly the antidote to all the ugly, bitter chaos in the world — and no one is more surprised than me how much being a mother suits me,” she tweeted.

“Ben and I have made the conscious decision to guard our (growing) families’ privacy as much as is possible,” McCain posted on Instagram. “I believe children have a right to privacy and hope you will all understand as we navigate this as much as possible going forward without sacrificing our comfort or safety.”
Despite saying she wasn’t going to share moments, she has shared tidbits that her fans appreciate. Everything is on McCain’s time and how comfortable she is of posting about her baby which fans have been respectful of.
Meghan McCain says her baby is a little ‘wildcat’
On Instagram, McCain talked about motherhood and how being a mother to Liberty Sage had exceeded her expectations.
“All of the cliches have come true and exceeded well beyond my wildest expectations — it is hands down the best thing I have ever done in my entire life and I am completely in awe of our daughter,” Meghan shared in a post on Instagram.
“Having Liberty is like observing my entire heart life and exist outside of my body,” she continued. “She is a little wildcat — beautiful, strong, alert, already so full [of] life and spirit… I only wish I had done this sooner.”
