“The View” co-host Meghan McCain announced that she and her husband, Ben Domenech, are expecting their first child together. As a result, McCain will be making her appearances on the ABC daytime talk show remotely due to the pandemic. McCain tweeted the news in a statement from her verified Twitter account: “My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant,” McCain said in her statement. “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.”
McCain went on to say in her statement that she had “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,” adding “starting immediately, I’ll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of Covid-19,” she said. As a result, I will be appearing on ‘The View’ from home via satellite.”
McCain and Domenech have been married since 2017. Last year she revealed that they had suffered a miscarriage. Meanwhile, “The View” moderator Whoopi Goldberg has also been working from home and fellow co-host Joy Behar announced she would be taking some time off from the show due to coronavirus concerns.
