Meghan McCain, The View co-host and daughter of GOP Senator John McCain, and her fiancé, conservative pundit Ben Domenech, are now a married couple! The lovebirds tied the knot a few days, mere weeks after she announced their engagement.
Meghan, 33, told her fellow co-hosts that she and her long-time boyfriend made the decision to wed while her father was undergoing cancer treatment at the Mayo Clinic in July. Senator McCain was diagnosed with stage four glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, earlier this year.
"We've been together for years. And we have been engaged for a while," Meghan explained. "It was a secret. I was hoping to get married and people wouldn't find out, but people talk sometimes and I love him very much and I'm very happy."
She continued, "We got engaged because we decided to sort of celebrate life, and celebrate being alive. It’s not the most romantic story, but he is my partner."
On November 21, Meghan and Ben, 35, held their nuptials just before sunset at the bride's family lodge in Sedona, Arizona. The pair were surrounded by 100 of their closest family and friends, as they exchanged vows and celebrated their union in a Western hunting lodge-themed wedding.
Although the wedding photos were kept hidden for a few days, Senator McCain took to Twitter the day after the affair to share a photo of himself, his wife and their dog at the venue.
He also shared a throwback photo of his family, including a young Meghan, and captioned it with, "Yesterday I was deeply blessed to give away my little girl at a ceremony with family & friends in
#Arizona. Congratulations @MeghanMcCain & @bdomenech - we are so happy for you!"

Now, just a couple of days after the senator's heartfelt post, photos of the wedding have finally emerged.
