DEALING WITH TROLLS

McCain has had to deal with social media trolls who would make hateful and hurtful statements about her late father, Senator John McCain. She explained that such negativity would be the reason why she would leave her child out of social media as much as possible.

The television personality also explained that she believed children had the right to privacy. She asked her fans to accommodate them and be understanding of their decision.

DUE DATE UPDATE

Two weeks before her first child was born, the co-host gave her fans an update on her pregnancy. Posting on Instagram, McCain shared that her due date was 2½ weeks away.

Meghan McCain shared how she would always love the baby she lost.

The star made the update on September 18, 2020. The post included an image of McCain’s topknot hairstyle and she explained that she was trying to remain as stylish as possible while struggling with pregnancy woes.

PREGNANCY STRUGGLES

Four days before her update on her due date, the co-host complained about the pregnancy issues she was facing. She shared how she felt every woman who’s ever been pregnant deserved a medal of recognition.
