My solution?

This was another way I did it:

    addGuestToArray() {
            name: this.state.pendingGuest,
            isConfirmed: false,
            isEditing: false,


        return this.state.guests

    addGuest(e) {

            guests: this.addGuestToArray(),
            pendingGuest: "",
