Meghan McCain and her husband Ben Domenech have welcomed their first child, daughter Liberty Sage.
The 35-year-old View co-host gave birth on Monday night to become a mom for the first time.
A representative for McCain told People magazine her and daughter are ‘happy and healthy’.
McCain and Domenech married in 2017 and announced their pregnancy on March 22.

The View co-host first announced the news on social media in March, writing: ‘My husband Ben and I have been blessed to find out I’m pregnant.
‘Although this isn’t how I expected to announce my pregnancy, both we and our families are excited to share the news with you all.’
McCain wrote that she ‘consulted with my doctors and they advised me that for the safety of our baby and myself, I should be extra vigilant about limiting the amount of people we come in contact with’.
This is the first child for the couple that tied the knot in November 2017.
She has continued to appear on The View with advice from doctors since the pandemic began in March.
McCain was, at times, open about her struggles with being a mother-to-be during her pregnancy.
In September, she tweeted: ‘Every woman who has ever been pregnant deserves a medal of recognition!’
She also shared that she was two-and-a-half weeks from her due date on September 18 and said she was wearing a ‘topknot hairstyle’.
However, in May she said she didn’t want too many details of her pregnancy to be made public to avoid attacks from trolls commenting on her late father, Senator John McCain.
At the time she wrote: ‘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.
‘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.’

The baby comes after McCain wrote an opinion piece in the New York Times revealing she suffered a miscarriage.
In that piece she shared she learned the hard news moments before a cover shoot for the Times’ Magazine.
‘I should have been proud,’ McCain wrote, of the shoot with her fellow hosts. ‘But inside, I am dying. Inside, my baby is dying.’
Looking back at the pictures from the shoot, McCain writes: ‘I see a woman hiding her shock and sorrow.’
‘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. To the end of my days I will remember this child — and whatever children come will not obscure that.

‘He pulled off being such a good dad. If I ever have kids, I want to figure out how he did it,’ she said previously on her late father. Pictured in May 2014 with her father
‘I have love for my child. I have love for all the women who, like me, were briefly in the sisterhood of motherhood, hoping, praying and nursing joy within us, until the day the joy was over.’
McCain, whose father, revered veteran Republican politician John McCain died of a brain tumor in August 2018, says she wanted to keep the miscarriage news private, but was sharing her experience because her brief absence from screens after July 4th ‘was enough to spark gossip about why I would be away’.
In a People interview in June 2018, McCain revealed she felt pressure from her mother to start having children.
‘She has never asked me before and then all [of a] sudden she brings it up all the time. It’s hilarious and uncomfortable,’ she said.
McCain has said in the past that she wants to follow her parents footsteps when it comes to parenting her children.
‘He pulled off being such a good dad. If I ever have kids, I want to figure out how he did it,’ she said on her late father. ‘My mom is truly the matriarch of our family and has kept everyone sane.’
