Meghan McCain has announced she and her husband Ben Domenech, co-founder of The Federalist, are expecting a baby after suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2019.

“My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant,” she wrote on Instagram on Sunday. “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.”

Co-host of “The View,” McCain said her doctors have advised her to self-isolate as a precaution in the wake of the COVID-19 global pandemic. She will continue to appear on “The View” from her home via satellite. Pregnant women may be at a higher risk of complications from the coronavirus. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “Pregnant women experience immunologic and physiologic changes which might make them more susceptible to viral respiratory infections, including COVID-19.”

“I’m fortunate that my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-hosts to work remotely,” she said. “I am indebted to our producers and crew. I also want to acknowledge the heroes – the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police officers, firemen and military – who are on the front lines of this fight.”

Last summer, McCain announced she had lost a baby to miscarriage, calling it a “horrendous experience” that isn’t discussed enough.

“I loved my baby and I always will. To the end of my days I will remember this child – and whatever children come will not obscure that,” she said at the time. “[…] Miscarriage is a pain too often unacknowledged. Yet it is real, and what [women who have miscarried] have lost is real. We feel sorrow and we weep because our babies were real.”

McCain concluded her happy announcement by asking everyone to “stay safe” amid the pandemic and promised to “continue to see you each morning on ‘The View’.”
