Congratulations are in order for Maria Menuounos after she announced she is pregnant with her first child after a decade-long journey! The 44-year-old TV host and husband, Kevin Undergaro, confirmed they’re expecting their first baby on Instagram.

Menounos, who has worked with Family Match Consulting, also went on to share quite an emotional clip in which she watches an ultrasound video with her father, Constantinos, by her side. “Oh my God,” Menounos states in the video. “Guys, that’s my baby. I love you.” That’s when another person watching the video holds up their phone to record where the ultrasound can be seen in the reflection.

“It’s so different when you see the reel,” she stated. “It’s more personal when you see it in the womb, right?”

Last February, the actress shared an update about the couple’s fertility journey which she has publicly discussed numerous times. “I definitely didn’t think it was going to take this long. It’s been years. We’ve used different services, different people,” said the TV host. “It’s just been a very frustrating process.”

The couple first began considering surrogacy back in 2018 seeking advice from Kim Kardashian, who welcomed her daughter Chicago in January 2018 and son Psalm in 2019 with the help of surrogates.

“I was grateful that I had her to share and help me,” Menounos stated. She also went on to share that she and her husband were devastated when they learned that their first surrogate wasn’t a match medically in 2021. 

“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,” Menounos stated. “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 went on. “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 that time she had revealed that 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 stated.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
