2. How did Menounos and Undergaro meet?

While speaking with Yahoo! Entertainment, Menounos confirmed that they met in 1998 on the set of a film they were working on, and she was just 19 years old. “It was love at first sight,” she told the outlet. 

Meanwhile, Undergaro was equally smitten with his future wife. He said, “When I first met Maria, I had never met anyone like her. When we said ‘goodbye,’ it was very emotional, even though we had only known each other for a few days. We both wanted to cry, and we didn’t know why.” D’awww.

3. When did the couple get engaged?

Nearly 20 years after they started dating, Undergaro popped the question in 2016 on The Howard Stern Show while they were promoting Menounos’s book, The Every Girl’s Guide to Cooking. As for why he waited to propose, he told Yahoo, “We knew we were married in our hearts. We didn’t need any of that stuff to solidify it, we were Kurt and Goldie-ing it.”

Well, fast-forward to the actual proposal, and Menounos was certainly thrilled to finally have a ring on it. Undergaro said, “We had so many special memories watching Howard Stern when we were in that basement. It was such a milestone for us to come together on that show.”

4. When did they get married?

The couple shared their special moment with the rest of the world by tying the knot in Times Square on national TV, during a live New Year’s Eve broadcast. Menounos recalled, “We ended up getting married on Fox NYE. Steve Harvey was officiating our wedding. Everybody was invited, and everybody got to be a part of it.”

The pair also had a fairytale wedding in a Greek Orthodox Church in Akovos. Menounos said, “Everyone there made sure that the wedding was about love and us, and everyone made it the most special day for us. There was no bitching, no complaining, no nothing. Everybody just wanted to make it special for us. It was beyond special.”

In February 2023, Menounos revealed that she and Undergaro are expecting their first child via surrogate.

I love you.”
