While sitting down with US Weekly for an exclusive interview, Menounos candidly revealed that having Athena become a member of the family was one of the “most special moments” of her life. She added, “The doctor literally grabbed her and hiked her onto me. I sat with her on my chest, and Keven and I kept looking at each other like, ‘Oh, my God.’ It was just pure joy.”

And not only that—we were also treated to a first glimpse of Menounos and Undergaro’s baby girl. On the latest cover of the new US Weekly issue, the couple is holding their newborn daughter, who is wearing a blue and white ruffled dress.

Back in February, the former Access Hollywood host confirmed she and her husband were having a child on Instagram. Alongside a clip of her sharing the news on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Menounos wrote, “We are overjoyed to share that we are finally gonna be parents!”  

And the soon-to-be mom gave a special thanks to the surrogate carrying her child, writing, “Thank you to our incredibly generous surrogate and her family for this blessing!”

We’re so happy for you two!
