Meghan McCain just gave the world some good news for a change.
The View co-host announced Sunday (March 22) that her and her husband Ben Domenech are expecting their first child. Fans will recall that McCain suffered a miscarriage of a baby girl just eight months ago.
“My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant,” she wrote in the Instagram post. “Although this isn’t how I expected to announce my pregnancy, both we and our families are excited to share the news with you all.”
Of course, the announcement comes at a time when the world is battling through the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. And due to that fact, McCain says she is choosing to be extra careful.
“I consulted with my doctors and they advised me that for the safety of our baby and myself, I should be extra vigilant about limiting the amount of people we come in contact with,” she wrote. “Starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. As a result, I will be appearing on The View from home via satellite.”

She continued, “I’m fortunate that my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-hosts to work remotely. I am indebted to our producers and crew. I also want to acknowledge the heroes—the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police offices, firemen and military—who are on the front lines of this fight. Please stay safe. Wash your hands and avoid public gatherings and I will continue to see you each morning on ‘The View.'”
McCain has yet to reveal if she knows if her little one is a boy or girl.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
