Baby is on the way! Maria Menounos has confirmed that she and her husband, Keven Undergaro, are expecting their first child in the summer of 2023.
“So we had a lot of plans. We were going to go to Greece in the summer. We’re having to move that up because we’re having a baby,” the “Heal Squad” podcast host revealed on Live With Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, February 7.
She began to cry as she said, “I had to share it here first because you guys are my family, you guys have been on the journey, and I’m so grateful,” adding that she was “emotional” and “super excited.”
For Menounos and Undergaro, 55, getting pregnant has been a long journey. Menounos revealed her heartbreak on Snapchat in 2016 after learning that her IVF treatment to become pregnant had failed.
Menounos stated that they had been attempting to have a child for “nearly a decade” “It’s been a long time. We’ve done everything — I mean, literally everything. They’ve tried to get me pregnant, that didn’t work. Kevin had a surgery, that didn’t work. He’s hung me upside down like a chicken, that didn’t work!”
Maria revealed that she reached out to some of her celebrity friends in an effort to become pregnant.
She stated, “Zoe Saldana and Kim Kardashian have been so helpful to me in this journey, and they both gave me all their advice and people. And Kim especially gave me this wonderful lawyer named Andy, and he found me this woman, Stephanie, who helped me find our surrogate.”
Maria praised her surrogate and her family as “literal angels.”
The television personality, who married Keven on New Year’s Eve 2017 in a ceremony officiated by Steve Harvey, stated, “We’re just so so grateful because these people really help you bring life forward, and without them, we wouldn’t have been able to do this.
“Our surrogate and her family are literal angels. I’m so grateful that we’re gonna have this extended family our baby will be part of, and we’re just so grateful to everybody who’s helped us along the way.”
