ABC’s Meghan McCain and her husband, The Federalist’s Ben Domenech, on Monday welcomed the birth of their first baby, a girl named Liberty Sage McCain Domenech, according to a tweet from the official Twitter account of “The View.”

McCain had announced previously that her doctors advised she should be “extra vigilant” amid the coronavirus outbreak, prompting her to work remotely for “The View” for the final months of her pregnancy.

The 35-year-old daughter of the late Sen. John McCain (R) also said in August she would not post photos of her “baby bump” due to vitriol said about her in the media on “an almost constant/daily basis.”

“Normally I just let it go because it comes with the territory of being an outspoken conservative woman on TV — but I’ve felt intensely protective and private over this time in my life and the privacy of my child,” she wrote on Instagram. 

McCain married Domenech, the co-founder and publisher of The Federalist, in 2017.

A spokesperson for McCain said that “mother and baby Liberty are healthy and doing well.”
