Meghan McCain Shares First Photo of Baby Girl Liberty | 22 Words
The View star, Meghan McCain, has given us the first glimpse of her new baby girl, Liberty...

And it is perhaps the cutest thing you'll see this week.

Meghan gave birth to her daughter last month but has kept the details surrounding her new arrival tightly under wraps.

Well, until now, that is.

She recently shared a photo of her new arrival, Liberty, on her Instagram page, and people cannot get over the cuteness.

Now, Meghan has been a public figure for most of her life.

She made her first public appearance at the 1996 Republican National Convention with her father, the former United States Senator, John McCain.

But, in 2007, Meghan began receiving media attention of her own accord.

Her blog, McCain Blogette, documented life on the campaign trail during her father's 2008 presidential campaign, as well as musing about fashion, music, and pop culture.

Her blog was an instant success...

And, in the following years, she would go on to write columns for The Daily Beast, as well as publishing her own book, My Dad, John McCain.

But it didn't take her long to turn to a career in television.

In 2011, Meghan became an analyst on MSNBC and went on to land a variety of jobs with Fox News and Outnumbered. But now, she is a permanent co-host of the ABC daytime talk show, The View.

However, things haven't exactly been plain sailing for Meghan these last few years.

After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2017, Meghan's beloved father, John McCain, sadly passed away in August 2018 at the age of eighty-one.

Understandably, this was a huge blow for Meghan...

Who was incredibly close to her father, right up until his death.

She was open about her grief.

Speaking to PEOPLE in 2019, Meghan had said: "I felt like a nuclear bomb went off in my life. I was a mess. I was barely functioning."

But, this year, Meghan got that little bit of good news she so desperately needed.

She was pregnant! With her husband, Ben Domenech, who she wed in 2o17, Meghan announced the exciting news via Instagram.

She wrote this:

"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."

She decided to keep her pregnancy tightly under wraps on social media...

For one heartbreaking reason.

Meghan explained via Twitter that, thanks to the people who trolled her father in his final days, she would be keeping her unborn child firmly off social media.

"Ben and I have made the conscious decision to guard our (growing) family's privacy as much as is possible... A bunch of inhumane jackasses has really ruined so much for so many on social media and I learned a lot of hard lessons about the cruelty that comes with being open and vulnerable about my personal life during my Dad's cancer fight."

Yet, throughout her private pregnancy, Meghan was candid with her struggles.

She shared this meme in August, writing: "The struggle is real... and the eight-month is totally kicking my ass. Any tips on how to get comfortable sleeping, swollen feet, or anything else from all the women who have been down this road would be greatly appreciated!"

But she was clearly very excited about the prospect of motherhood.

In the weeks leading up to her due date, she shared this image, alongside the caption: "In the home stretch now and about to become a mother. We can all only be the change we want to see in the world and strive for better. This summer of hell should be a huge wake-up call that we all have a lot of work to do and I still wholeheartedly believe there’s still ultimately more that unites us as Americans than divides us."

And, on September 28th, her daughter finally arrived into the world.

Sharing this image on Instagram a week after the birth, Meghan described motherhood as "euphoria."

She wrote this:

"Motherhood is euphoria. All of the cliches have come true and exceeded well beyond my wildest expectations ~ it is hands down the best thing I have ever done in my entire life and I am completely in awe of our daughter... Thank you to my love, Ben, for giving me this gift and taking the leap on this wonderful and petrifying adventure together."

"This is the first time since my Dad passed that the part of my heart that broke off and left with him no longer feels missing."

She went on to thank people for their respect and patience, writing: "Thank you to all who have respected my protectiveness, boundaries, and privacy during pregnancy and now first steps into motherhood. I know it is unorthodox given the public life I have chosen. It's all a work in progress and I will continue to share what I can as I (and Ben) are comfortable. And thank you for all the incredible words, blessing, and kindness that have been extended to all of us."

But now, Meghan and Ben evidently feel comfortable enough to give us our first glimpse of baby Liberty...

Because they have finally shared a photo of her onto her Instagram account.

The photo is nothing short of stunning...
