McCain said they are "complete overwhelmed by the kindness" people have shown them since announcing the news.

More from Entertainment Tonight:

McCain explained that her pregnancy journey has been "bittersweet" amid the chaos because "there’s just a lot of people in a lot of pain right now"

"I just keep trying to remind myself that people have had babies in much worse and much more intense conditions and this is just how it’s going to be for awhile," she shared.

She went on to explain that there "will be a time and a place" to talk about her pregnancy journey, but during this turbulent crisis, "America just wants to talk about the coronavirus."

McCain's "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg tried to reassure her. "Anytime people are celebrating the possibility of a birth, I think it’s a good thing," Goldberg said. "People are looking for things to celebrate so you’ve just given folks a nice little bump of celebration."

Staying Safe

Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
