It’s a girl for Meghan McCain and Ben Domenech, who welcomed their first child on Monday night.
McCain, who is the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain, chose a patriotic name for her daughter – Liberty Sage McCain Domenech.
According to People, we probably won’t be seeing much of their daughter on social media, with McCain reluctant to share pictures of her baby bump whilst pregnant, citing the hateful comments some social media users post.

Ben and I have made the conscious decision to guard our (growing) families privacy as much as is possible. I believe children have a right to privacy and hope you will all understand as we navigate this as much as possible going forward without sacrificing our comfort or safety. A bunch of inhumane jackasses have really ruined so much for so many on social media and I learned a lot of hard lessons about cruelty that comes with being open and vulnerable about my personal life during my Dads cancer fight. It is a shame. I know this is an unorthodox choice for a talk show host who is on tv five days a week – but I’ve always lived by the beat of my own drum. Thank you for the continued kind words, support and prayers regarding my pregnancy from so many of you who are nothing but kind. It has meant a lot during this crazy time. ♥️
“People keep asking and requesting I show pics & details of my pregnancy,” People report The View co-host as sharing on social media in May. “Given that people write on photos I put up of my family they are glad my Dad got cancer and he’s in hell, I thought I would leave my unborn child out of the social media cesspool as much as is possible.”
“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,” McCain said at the time.
According to ABC News, both mother and baby are doing well.
