AceShowbiz - Meghan McCain is "blessed" that she is pregnant with her first child, even though she admits that it's such a rough moment to be expecting amid coronavirus outbreak. On Sunday, March 22, the co-host of "The View" announced her pregnancy though she also said she would practice self-isolation for the sake of her unborn baby.
The 35-year-old shared her "personal news" on her Instagram page. "My husband Ben [Domenech] and I have been blessed to find out I'm pregnant," she gushed. "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."
The "Dirty Sexy Politics" author went on to explain that after consulting with her doctors, she "should be extra vigilant about limiting the amount of people we come in contact with" for "the safety of our baby and myself." She stated, "Starting immediately, I'll be joining the millions of Americans who are self-isolating as a precaution to prevent the spread of COVID-19."
McCain's quarantine, however, affected her ABC's chat show appearance that resulted in her working "from home via satellite." Noting she was "fortunate that my employer, ABC, has allowed me and my co-host to work remotely," she expressed her gratitude, "I am indebted to our producers and crew."
The daughter of late U.S. senator John McCain also made use of this opportunity to "acknowledge the heros - the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police officers, firemen and military - who are on the front lines of this fight." She then concluded her lengthy statement by urging people to "please stay safe." She added, "Wash your hands and avoid public gatherings and I will continue to see you each morning on 'The View.' "
The news about her pregnancy came almost a year after McCain suffered from miscarriage. "I had a miscarriage. 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 opened up to The New York Times about loosing her child.
"I have love for my child. I have love for all the women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying and nursing joy within us, until the day the joy was over."
