Undergaro announced on February 7, 2023, that Menounos is expecting her first child via surrogate. In an interview with the People, she expressed gratitude to the family who had helped her conceive the baby. She said, “We are so grateful to the beautiful family helping us conceive our baby.” The Undergaro couple worked with Family Match Consulting for surrogacy.

Maria added, “Keven, my dad [Constantinos Menounos] and I are all beyond excited for this soul to come into our lives,” she continued. “What a blessing.”

Maria Menounos and Keven Undergaro dated for about two decades before settling in 2017. 

The bold Undergaro couple has been very transparent about their fertility struggles. After struggling with conceiving a baby biologically, they decided surrogacy was the best option in 2018. She sought advice from her friend Kim Kardashian who herself had a daughter and son with the help of Surrogates.

“I was grateful that I had her to share and help me. That was a really hard breakup because we had been together on the journey for almost two years. She was just so lovely and so amazing and very patient with us,” said Menounos.

“There’s something called a mock cycle that my fertility doctor suggested because we only have two really good embryos and we want two kids,” she added. “What would happen is the uterine lining wouldn’t grow to that last stage where you could safely implant and know that the embryo would stick. Had we not done [a mock cycle], we would’ve probably lost our only chances.”

At the time, she shared the couple had found another surrogate and were “in the throes of all of that.”

“But I told [my doctors], ‘If it doesn’t work, I’m done. This is the last straw. If this doesn’t happen, it’s definitely not meant to be.’ I can’t go through this process again,” she shared honestly.
