Another “View” cohost will be joining the show remotely during the coronavirus outbreak — but for a bit of a different reason.

Meghan McCain announced over the weekend that she is pregnant with her first child.

In the same tweet, she also indicated that she will begin co-hosting “The View” remotely, though an exact start date for that has not been announced.

She was not on Monday, March 23, 2020’s show.

Her co-host Whoopi Goldberg started co-hosting from home March 18, 2020. Meanwhile, fellow co-host Joy Behar has been off the show completely on advice of her doctor — but Behar joined the show via video call March 23.

Both Goldberg and Behar are in the age range considered to be at higher risk from dying from coronavirus infections.

McCain’s age, 35, does not by itself put her in a higher risk group but contracting COVID-19 during a pregnancy could cause unexpected complications.

McCain is the daughter of the late Sen. John McCain.
