Conservative political writer Ben Domenech is the lucky guy who’s won Meghan’s heart! Although Meghan has managed to keep Ben’s identity a secret for their entire relationship, he confirmed his identity last night when he reweeted a Page Six article naming him as Meg’s fiancé. “Love you bae. @MeghanMcCain,” he wrote.

The Page Six article announced that Meghan would be announcing the engagement on today’s episode of The View, which she did! "We've been together for years. And we have been engaged for a while," Meghan told her View co-hosts. "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."

On Thursday’s show, Meghan revealed she and Ben got engaged after her father got scanned for cancer. “We were at Mayo Clinic and my father had his scan and we got engaged because we decided to sort of celebrate life and celebrate being alive," she told her View co-hosts. "It's not the most romantic story, but he is my partner."
