Maria Menounos and her husband, Keven Undergaro, are going to be parents! On Feb. 7, a rep for the TV host, 44, and Undergaro, 55, confirmed to People that the couple are expecting their first child together via surrogate. “Just after a decade of trying everything, we are so grateful to the beautiful family who helped us conceive our baby,” Menounos told the outlet. “Keven, my dad and I are all beyond thrilled to have this soul come into our lives. What a blessing.”
The mom-to-be also shared a heartfelt clip with People where she and her dad, Constantinos Menounos, watch an ultrasound video together. “Oh my god,” Maria said. “Guys, this is my baby. I love you.”
Menounos, who started IVF treatments more than a decade ago, has spoken on several occasions about the couple’s fertility journey. She shared an update last seen in February 2022, telling People, “I really didn’t think it would take this long. It’s been years. We’ve used different services, different people. It’s just a very frustrating process.”
According to People, Menounos and Undergaro — who tied the knot on Fox’s New Year’s Eve show in December 2017 — began considering surrogacy in 2018. They sought advice from friends like Kim Kardashian, who welcomed both daughter Chicago and son Psalm via surrogates. “I was grateful to have him to share and help me,” Menounos said.
Menounos and Undergaro’s child is expected to arrive later this year.
