The "View" co-host praised the family values of her conservative pundit husband Ben Domenech during an appearance on "The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special" over the weekend. 

"When we went out the first time, I was like, this is a totally different vibe and it’s way better. I tell women: Conservative men have better family values, and they take dating and family and marriage more seriously," McCain told Shapiro.

She continued: "I think if you’re serious, which I was when I met my husband, about getting married and having kids and wanting to go to the next phase, I just found … finally dating a conservative man was the one. He took it seriously."

McCain tied the knot to Domenech in November 2017 at her family's ranch in Sedona, Arizona. 

Their relationship came as a surprise to many, including McCain herself, after Domenech publicly slammed the idea of dating her on Twitter in 2012. 

"Nobody is more surprised by the man I ended up marrying than me," McCain said. "I say that with supreme love and respect. I'm deeply in love and he's the best decision I've ever made, but he's the most conservative man I've ever met."

McCain said Domenech was a huge support system during "the worst year of my life between August of 2018 and August of 2019," referring to her recent miscarriage and the death of her father, Arizona Sen. John McCain. 

"My husband has been the most incredible (man),” she shared. "I hope every woman has the kind of husband I have. I say that as someone who dated every (expletive) in West Hollywood possible before I met my husband."
