McCain hasn't kept her mystery man completely out of her public life, though. Since 2016, she's referred to him frequently on social media and even discussed him with her father on live television last week. "Actually, he's a very fine man," the senator said on The View. "I'm very proud and very happy that they're so happy together. He's still got a lot to learn," he joked. The talk show host went on to give more clues about her beau. "Well, this one works in politics and has for a long time," she explained. "Frankly, he's a little more conservative than I am," her father added.
All of the hinting might be over now, though. Ben Domenech, conservative writer and founder of the online publication, The Federalist, may have just revealed himself at McCain's fiancé. "Love you bae," he tweeted, tagging an article announcing his and McCain's alleged engagement. He then retweeted a follower, who wrote, "I finally don't fear spilling the beans about @MeghanMcCain and @bdomenechin public." Us Weekly has confirmed that that Domenech is, in fact, McCain's fiancé, but we'll have to wait for the TV personality to announce the happy news on her own.
According Us Weekly's source, the couple has already begun planning their nuptials. It sounds like Domenechin has changed McCain's own views on weddings and marriage. In 2015, the Dirty Sexy Politics author told the Los Angeles Times that she wasn't ready for those next steps. "I am still dating and love my job and not ready to settle down at all," she said. "I don't know if I ever want to get married and have kids. And I think that's a common struggle."
