Meghan McCain shows off her gray roots in candid Instagram selfie

Meghan McCain is showing off her gray roots while in quarantine and jokingly branding herself a ‘quarantine witch’ – while revealing this is the longest she has ever gone without getting her color done. 

The pregnant View co-host, 35, told her Instagram followers that she has gone ‘full quarantine Witch grey hair’ while sharing a photo of her roots on Monday, but she confessed that she doesn’t have any plans on trying to dye her blonde locks herself. 

‘No lies about “lighting”, “dry shampoo” or at home treatments here…. reached my full quarantine Witch grey hair completion,’ she captioned the image, which focused on the top of her head. ‘Longest time in my ENTIRE life without getting my color done.’

The TV host, who has been self-isolating since March, when she revealed that she was expecting her first child with husband Ben Domenech, 38, went on to pay tribute to all of the other women in the world who – like her – went prematurely gray in their twenties. 

‘Shoutout to all my fellow women who also hereditarily went prematurely grey in your twenties. I’m owning it,’ she wrote. 

Meghan, who is the daughter of the late Senator John McCain, then called for all other ladies who are struggling with their roots to ‘join her coven’, while joking that she needs to ‘find her cauldron’.

The mother-to-be also shut down anyone who might have been getting ready to suggest that she opt for an at-home root touch-up, insisting that hair styling is not her forte, and isn’t something that she would ever consider attempting. 

‘Also please don’t ask me to do my color at home, I can barely blow dry my own hair let alone highlight it,’ she wrote at the end of the post. 

Meghan also shared several witch-themed songs on her Instagram Stories ‘in honor of her newly grown out gray hair’, including Season Of The Witch by Lana Del Rey, Witches by Alice Phoebe Lou, Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac, and Witch by The Bird and the Sea. 

Plenty of Meghan’s followers urged her to embrace her gray hair, with one person even suggesting that she grow her hair out, writing: ‘You might like it!’   

Others praised the TV host for being so candid about her beauty struggles during quarantine, with one person commenting: ‘Better to go prematurely grey, then prematurely bald!! Thanks for being soooo honest!’ 

‘We are on opposite sides of politics, but I LOVE how real you are,’ another person said. 

‘I LOVE that you call bulls**t (just like your dad) and I LOVE how raw and honest you are. We can all learn a LOT from each other these days… even when we don’t always agree.

‘Your honest greys only continue to show your honest YOU. I truly appreciate that these days. Thank you. I promise to keep listening and learning… I can see you do that as well. Appreciated. Sending hugs.’ 

Many people offered sweet words for Meghan, telling her how ‘beautiful’ and ‘great’ she looks, with one saying: ‘You’re gorg!’ 

The TV host has been self-isolating at home since mid-March, when she shared her joyful pregnancy news with the world, and since then she has been filming her clips for The View via satellite from the safety of her house. 

However quarantine hasn’t been easy that easy for Meghan, who opened up about how she has coped with her pregnancy amid the pandemic. 

During a segment on The View on March 25, she said that she and husband Ben were ‘excited’ and a ‘little surprised’ by her pregnancy, but she admitted the global health crisis has made it difficult for them to celebrate. 

‘It’s bittersweet because there’s just a lot of people in a lot of pain right now,’ she told her co-stars Whoopi Goldberg, Sunny Hostin, and guest-host Sara Haines. 

‘I didn’t know if I was ever going to be a mom so I am excited, and I keep trying to remind myself that people have had babies in much worse and much more intense conditions,’ she added. 

‘This is just how it’s going to be for a little while. I think there will be a time and a place to talk about this at greater length, but I right now, I think America just wants to talk about the coronavirus.’
