Meghan McCain was beaming in her very first photo of herself along with her baby girl, Liberty Sage McCain Domenech.
The Instagram photo was captioned, simply, “Bliss [heart emoji][Statue of Liberty emoji]” with Meghan holding the snoozing Liberty in a pink blanket.
Liberty is the first child of McCain’s and husband, Ben Domenech.
The birth was announced via Twitter through the ABC show’s The View how Liberty was born on Sept. 28.
Megan informed fans just a week after giving birth how motherhood has been in a heartfelt Instagram post shared on October 8.
“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,” the caption began.
“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 life and spirit… I only wish I had done this sooner.”
McCain went on, saying: “Thank you to my love Ben for giving me this gift and taking the leap on this wonderful and petrifying adventure together. I love our little family and I have never felt so blessed, present and grateful.”
In addition, McCain also shared how motherhood as helped her cope with her father’s death, U.S. Senator John McCain.
“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 expressed. The new mom then thanked everyone for respecting her and Ben’s privacy “during pregnancy and now first steps into motherhood” and “for all the incredible words, blessing and kindness that have been extended to all of us.”
She wrote, “I am beyond grateful and humbled.”
