How Meghan McCain Met her Husband Ben Domenech? Relationship Details

Meghan McCain is the daughter of the late senator, John McCain. In 2020, she announced her pregnancy during spring. Before joining The View, she was a co-host at Fox News in Outnumbered. She started working at the show in 2015 and left in 2016. Now, she and her husband are parents. Many people have always wondered how the couple met. 

After her announcing that she was pregnant in 2017, she stated in The View that she and Domenech had been together for some time. She also revealed that everything went well the first time her husband met with her father. She stated, “[Ben] works in politics and has for a long time so he wasn’t as intimidated. He actually met my dad at my brother’s wedding for the first time and ended up talking about health care or something very wonky.” 

Domenech is the publisher and co-founder of The Federalist, a conservative organization. It seems that politics played a key role in bringing them together. Closer Weekly reported that when she was talking about their first date together, she confessed that she felt he was the one since he was different and better than other dates she had gone to. She revealed, When we went out the first time, I was like, this is a totally different vibe and it’s way better.” She stated that Domenech was serious about the date, which made her realize that she could get married to him and start a family together. 

The Wedding

Senator McCain died in August 2018, even though he still attended his daughter’s wedding. People disclosed that Meghan wanted everybody to have a good time at her wedding. Even though the initial plan was to have the father walk her down the aisle, a torn Achilles tendon meant that the brother, Jimmy, would step up. Meghan stated, “He stepped in to walk me down the actual aisle, and then my dad gave me away at the very end. I had nerves right before I was going to walk out, but Jimmy was making me laugh the entire time.” She also confessed that her dad falling sick was another motivation for her to get married. She was amazed by the fact that Ben was always there for her during her father’s sickness. She felt that this was the love she needed, and they ended up telling themselves that they should get married sooner. 

The Need to Maintain a Private Life.

Even though the couple has been secretive about the place they first met, they have made their marriage life secret even though she openly spoke about becoming a mother. She shared her experience on Instagram, and she said she loved it. She stated, “All of the clichés 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.” Meghan also said, “Having Liberty is like observing my entire heart live and exist outside of my body. She is a little wildcat ~ beautiful, strong, alert, already so full of life and spirit… I only wish I had done this sooner.”

She also revealed that part of the reason she was not going to share much about her life was the mean comments they received after her dad’s death. Meghan revealed in a post, “Ben and I have made the conscious decision to guard our (growing) families [sic] 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.” It seems that even though she is a public figure, she rarely talks about her husband and how they met since it seems she wants to ensure she maintains a private life.
