The pair also share a daughter, Blake, who was born in 2019.
Her husband, Sean, is an 11-year veteran Major League Baseball pitcher.
Fox News Emily Compagno responded, “We are sending all of our love and well wishes and prayers and support to the now family of four.”
“Baby Nash was born on Tuesday, Mom and Dad are both doing great and Nash is already a hit with his big sister Blake,” Compagno added.
McEnany was one of the youngest ever to serve as White House Press Secretary, but prove herself well-prepared during her time in the Trump administration.
She also interned in the White House press office when Dana Perino was press secretary for then-President George W. Bush.

Compagno recalled McEnany saying that Blake was looking forward to Nash’s birth the most in their family, so she could be a big sister.
“The first thing that came to my mind was James 1:17, ‘Every good and perfect gift is from above coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights.’ None more so than that sweet baby boy Nash,” Compagno said, quoting from the Bible.
Co-host Carley Shimkus pointed out that both Blake and Nash hit the “genetic lottery” with their parents, saying that McEnany is beautiful and smart and Gilmartin is handsome and a professional baseball player.
“These kids are going to take over the world,” she said.
Prior to joining Fox News in March 2021, McEnany was White House press secretary for President Donald Trump…
That opportunity was followed by stints as a producer for the Fox News program “Hannity & Colmes” and “The Mike Huckabee Show” on radio. In the latter gig, she crossed paths with Huckabee’s daughter, future White House press secretary and now Arkansas Governor-elect Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
