Congratulations are in order for Megan McCain and her husband Ben Domenech after they welcome their second daughter on Thursday, January 19th. “Yesterday morning, we welcomed our newest addition, Clover Jade McCain Domenech, to our family!” McCain, 37, told Daily Mail this morning. “Ben and I are overjoyed to introduce Liberty to her baby sister and start this new adventure as a family.”
Domenech, 41, chimed in, saying, “Meghan’s strength and love for our daughters is boundless. I feel so blessed that her and Clover are both doing well and I cannot wait for our entire family to meet our baby girl.”
The former The View co-host had announced in September 2022 that they were expecting baby number two.
Baby Bump Alert!
“Ben and I feel so blessed that we will be adding a new member to our family this winter. a baby sister for our daughter’s liberty! we are more than halfway to meeting our newest daughter and we couldn’t be more excited,” she told The Daily Mail at that time.
“Our whole family, especially her grandmas, cannot wait to smother her with all the love and affection we can possibly give. Ben and I are truly thrilled and counting down the days to grow our family and meet our newest addition!” she added.
The political commentator had been showcasing her pregnancy progress via her social media accounts before the official arrival.
Sharing several photos with her husband and daughter for Christmas, Megan wrote via Instagram “It is actually impossible to get a toddler to stand for a Christmas Eve dinner photo when you’re 9 months pregnant — but we tried.”
Meghan, Ben and Liberty
The couple first became parents in September 2020 welcoming Liberty, after McCain had tragically suffered a miscarriage a year earlier. McCain opened up to People earlier this year revealing that her daughter had one of the same habits as her late dad, John McCain, who passed away on August 25, 2018, due to brain cancer.
“So this is very strange … DNA and genes are strange,” McCain stated. “[Liberty] does this thing with her hands, and [my dad] used to do that all the time. I don’t do it. I don’t know where it comes from but she does it even now.”
“I told my mother-in-law it creeps me out when she does it because it’s this tic my dad used to do with his hands.”
“So it’s stuff like that, but I loved my dad and I love my mother in a way that’s the way I think a lot of people love their parents, they’re the people that raised you,” she stated. “And with my dad in particular, he was just so much for so much of my life in so many different ways. But with my daughter, it’s just pure. She’s perfect.”
