Heavily pregnant Meghan McCain opened up about how pregnancy has been for her during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. The expectant mother noted that there has been a lot of discomfort for her.


Meghan McCain is expecting her first child with her husband, Ben Domenech, and the television personality opened up about her pregnancy experience, especially the discomfort that comes with it.

In a recent exclusive with Entertainment Tonight, McCain, who is about eight and a half months gone, admitted that she has been feeling sluggish and big lately.

McCain also said that her back has been hurting a lot, and she had been feeling tired — just like most pregnant women. The expectant mom further explained that being pregnant has made her more sensitive to all of the chaos going on in the world.

For McCain, her pregnancy had been both a blessing and a curse. Although she thinks about her present condition, she also can't help thinking about what's happening globally. 


As for how she maintains a positive outlook amid such a tumultuous time, McCain revealed that she tries to reach out to her friends and loved ones. 

McCain said being in quarantine with Domenech had been like marriage on acid.

Despite pregnancy symptoms, McCain is still making appearances as a co-host on "The View," which recently started its 24th season. She explained  that she is not the first woman to get pregnant on the show, making everyone understand how she might be feeling.


Although McCain already knows the gender of her baby, she has chosen to keep it a secret until her delivery. This comes as no surprise because the television personality has maintained a high level of privacy amid her pregnancy.

Last month, she spoke about her decision to keep photos of her baby bump away from the internet. The star maintained that protecting her child's privacy is important, and she chooses to start now.


During the COVID-19 lockdown, McCain was in quarantine with her husband, and for the television star, it was a time when she learned new things about him. While speaking about her experience, McCain said being in quarantine with Domenech had been like marriage on acid.

She explained that being with a person all day long could be a bit challenging. McCain then praised her husband and added that quarantine made her sure she married the right person.

With a supportive and loving husband like Domenech, there is no doubt that McCain will get through her pregnancy struggles. Most importantly, their baby will have all of the love in the world!
