On Sept. 28, 2020, McCain and Domenech announced the birth of their daughter. Producers at The View took to Twitter to give their followers the joyous update.
“We are excited to share the happy news that our @MeghanMcCain and her husband Ben Domenech have welcomed their first child, daughter Liberty Sage McCain Domenech!” the daytime talk show posted.
Often active on social media, McCain celebrated Halloween over the weekend with a post that referenced her daily duties as a new mother.
“Loving this pumpkin rendition of me!” she captioned the photo of a pumping pumpkin mom next to her bassinet of baby gourds – one crying, one with a pacifier. “Happy Halloween from newborn land!”
‘The View’ star keeps her followers up to date … on everything
McCain is known for keeping it real, personally and professionally. Turning to her followers for advice, she recently asked a question about nursing that quickly cut to the chase.
“I know there is a LOT going on in the world that is much more important,” she tweeted on Oct. 5, “but I’m in the throes of newborn land…. but I just wanted to know if your nipples can actually fall off from breast feeding?”
The View star also gave some explicit details on Instagram regarding a request she made of co-host Sunny Hostin before heading to the delivery room.
“I appreciate getting to work with you every day and all I continue to learn from you,” McCain posted in praise of Hostin on her birthday on Oct. 20. “I also appreciate that when I was going into labor, I ask you to pray for my vagina – and you did to your catholic saints! 🤣 That’s friendship!”
Meghan McCain pens poetic post on motherhood
Though she hadn’t yet shared a picture of baby Liberty, McCain let her followers know how much she was reveling in being a mom shortly after Liberty’s arrival.
“Motherhood is euphoria,” the conservative pundit wrote in an Oct. 8 Instagram post. “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.”
Expressing gratitude for her husband and love for her daughter, McCain also noted how Liberty was helping her heal from the death of her father, Senator John McCain, in August 2018.
“Having Liberty is like observing my entire heart live and exist outside of my body,” she gushed. “She is a little wildcat ~ beautiful, strong, alert, already so full life and spirit… I only wish I had done this sooner. Thank you to my love Ben for giving me this gift and taking the leap on this wonderful and petrifying adventure together. … This is the first time since my Dad passed that the part of my heart that broke off and left with him no longer feels missing.”
On Oct. 14, McCain finally gave fans what they had been waiting for and posted a picture of herself holding her baby daughter. She captioned the photo with one word – “Bliss.”
