Of her new pregnancy, she wrote that she will be working from home, like so many other Americans striving to make social distancing the norm during the COVID-19 crisis.
"I 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," she wrote. To that end, she "will be appearing on 'The View' from home via satellite."
McCain thanked her bosses at ABC and the crew for the opportunity to do so, and went on to heap praise on "the heroes — the doctors, nurses, grocery and pharmacy workers, journalists, police officers, firemen and military — who are on the front lines of this fight [against COVID-19]."
She ended her joyful announcement with a reminder: "Please stay safe. Wash your hands and avoid public gatherings and I will continue to see you each morning on 'The View.'"
