The View co-host first announced the news on social media in March, writing, “My husband, Ben and I, were blessed to find out I was pregnant.
“While I didn’t expect to announce my pregnancy, we and our families are happy to share the news with all of you.”
McCain wrote that she “has consulted my doctors and they have advised me that for the safety of our baby and myself I should be extra vigilant when it comes to limiting the number of people we come into contact with” .
This is the first child for the couple who tied the knot in November 2017.
Since the pandemic started in March, she has continued to be seen on The View with advice from doctors.
McCain was at times open to her problems being an expectant mother during her pregnancy.
In September she tweeted: “Every woman who has ever been pregnant deserves a medal of recognition!”
She also said she was two and a half weeks from her September 18 due date and said she wore a “topknot” hairstyle.
However, in May, she said she did not want too many details of her pregnancy released to avoid attacks from trolls commenting on her late father, Senator John McCain.
At the time she wrote, “Ben and I made a conscious decision to protect the privacy of our (growing) families as much as possible.
“I believe children have a right to privacy and I hope that all of you will understand if we control this as much as possible without compromising our comfort or safety.
“I know this is an unorthodox choice for a talk show host to be on TV five days a week – but I’ve always lived to my own drum.”

The baby arrives after McCain wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times in which she miscarried.
In this piece she shared, she learned the tough news moments before a cover shoot for Times’ Magazine.
“I should have been proud,” wrote McCain of the shoot with her host colleagues. “But I’m dying inside. My baby dies inside ‘
Looking back on the photos from the shoot, McCain wrote: “I see a woman who hides her shock and sadness.”
“For a brief moment, I had the privilege of seeing myself in the sisterhood of motherhood,” she wrote.
‘I had a miscarriage. I loved my baby and I always will. I will remember this child for the rest of my days – and whatever children come, it will not cover up.

‘He managed to be such a good father. If I ever have children, I want to find out how he did it, ”she said earlier of her late father. Pictured with her father in May 2014
“I love my child. I love all women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying, and nurturing joy in us until the day was over. ‘
McCain, whose father, venerated veteran Republican politician John McCain, died of a brain tumor in August 2018, said she wanted to keep the news of miscarriages a secret but shared her experience because her brief absence from screens after July 4 was enough to spark gossip about why I’d be gone ‘.
In a June 2018 People interview, McCain revealed she was feeling her mother’s pressure to have children.
‘She’s never asked me and then everything [of a] suddenly she talks about it all the time. It’s funny and uncomfortable, ”she said.
McCain has said in the past that she wants to follow in her parents’ footsteps when it comes to raising her children.
‘He managed to be such a good father. If I ever have children, I want to find out how he did it, ”she said to her late father. “My mother really is the matriarch of our family and kept everyone healthy.”
