“Bliss,” the 35-year-old simply captioned a snapshot snuggling her little bundle of joy on Wednesday, October 14. Meghan donned a glowing makeup-free face and a comfy black sweater while holding her beautiful newborn up to her chest in a light-pink blanket.
Considering the TV personality kept details of her pregnancy top-secret up until she welcomed baby Liberty on September 28, fans were thrilled to get a glimpse inside her new life as a doting mom. “You look stunning! Congratulations,” one fan wrote in the comments section of Meghan’s post, while another echoed, “Liberty is a lucky girl to have such a special mama!” A third gushed, “Motherhood looks beautiful on you!”
Since becoming a mama with Ben, whom she married in 2017, Meghan has been relishing in her new role. Over a week after she gave birth to her little one, the Dirty Sexy Politics author dished experiencing parenthood “exceeded well beyond [her] wildest expectations.”
“Motherhood is euphoria. All of the cliches have come true,” she penned next to a pic of her new “Mama” necklace on October 8. “It is hands down the best thing I have ever done in my entire life and I am completely in awe of our daughter.”
Having the ability to raise Liberty with the Federalist cofounder, 38, is like “observing [her] entire heart live and exist outside of [her] body,” the Emmy Award winner sweetly continued. “She is a little wildcat — beautiful, strong, alert, already so full life and spirit … I only wish I had done this sooner.”
After praising Ben for “giving [her] this gift” of a baby girl and “taking the leap on this wonderful and petrifying adventure” of parenthood together, Meghan thanked her fans for being so respectful toward her “protectiveness, boundaries and privacy” as a new mom.
“I know it is unorthodox given the public life I have chosen,” she explained. “It’s all a work in progress and I will continue to share what I can as I (and Ben) are comfortable.”
Months before their little one’s arrival, Meghan got candid about sharing updates about baby No. 1 on social media. After receiving a lot of questions regarding her pregnancy, the ABC News star revealed why she was leaving her daughter “out of the social media cesspool.”
“Ben and I have made the conscious decision to guard our (growing) [family’s] privacy as much as is possible,” she wrote in May. “I believe children have a right to privacy and hope you will all understand as we navigate this as much as possible going forward without sacrificing our comfort or safety.”
Way to go, mama!
