"Thank you all for the well wishes – we are all blissed out happy, healthy and exhausted!" she captioned the post in part, along with the quote: "Here's to strong women. May we know them.

McCain first confirmed her second pregnancy in Sept. 202 in a chat with the Daily Mail.

"We are more than halfway to meeting our newest daughter, and we couldn't be more excited." Their oldest daughter, Liberty, was born in Sept. 2020. She used various methods to conceal her growing baby bump before the announcement, from carrying Liberty to using a purse in front of her torso to hide the bump. 

Once announced, she chronicled her expanding family on her social media. Dressed in festive red pajamas, the pop culture and political commentator captioned a mirror selfie, "Like a bowl full of jelly…#9months #merrychristmas alongside several Santa Claus emojis. Just a day earlier, McCain posed in front of a decorated Christmas tree with her husband and daughter, Liberty. "Merry Christmas Eve from my family to yours! It is actually impossible to get a toddler to stand for a Christmas Eve dinner photo when you're 9 months pregnant – but we tried! Much love, blessings, and good tidings to you all," she captioned the family photo.
