Who Is Ben Domenech married To?

Moreover, Meghan shared a few insights into her magical wedding on her show 'The View.' She said, 

I got very drunk on whiskey and had a great time dancing the entire time.

In addition to booze and dancing, the party was completed with great music. In fact, the music was so great that it left Meghan's father, U.S. Senator John McCain in tears. "And I pulled Clay Aiken out of retirement to sing and got my dad to cry,” she added.

Surely, it was a mesmerizing event for everyone present, but a sad reality loomed over Ben and his newlywed. Ben and Meghan had to rush their wedding plans due to her father's sudden diagnosis of brain cancer. Meghan wanted her father to be present on her big day and Ben understood, so they ended up pushing their wedding fate a bit forward.

"You’re really just living scan to scan. I wanted to make sure that he was — that we were all — there. Why wait?” she said

The couple was elated to share about their big day but Ben and his wife maintained suspense in their love life for the longest time. They would drop hints but revealed about their relationship only when their wedding days came nearer.

A source close to Meghan first confirmed her engagement to Us Weekly, saying that Meghan is all set to get married. The source, however, didn’t disclose Ben as Meghan’s fiance. Nevertheless, Ben later tweeted an article about the engagement with the caption “Love you bae,” which confirmed him as Meghan’s groom-to-be.
