Maria Menounos's Wife Keven Undergaro: Relationship, Age & More
Every relationship goes through the test of time, and Keven Undergaro and his girlfriend-turned-wife Maria Menounos' relationship is no exception! Keven Undergaro, a TV writer, is married to Maria Menounos, but they have had their share of peaks and valleys on their journey thus far.
Let's take a peek at the story of Kevin Undergaro and Maria Menounos, the couple who are set to enjoy the fruits of married life and make some drastic life changes.
Keven Undergaro All Set To Get Married!
Quite surprisingly, Kevin and Maria have been in a relationship for two decades now. Two Decades. That is HUGE!
Well, for Keven and Maria it isn’t. They had been in a dating relationship since 1998, and eventually, Keven decided to pop the question to his longtime girlfriend, Maria in style.
Keven first went on to talk about how the couple has stood firm and strong through all those years. Maria, who initially asked if Keven was about to propose, did not think it was coming for her and she nearly jumped past the couch when Keven popped the question asking her,
“would you make me the happiest man on earth?”
Keven Undergaro asking Marie Menounos to marry him on Howard Stern Show (Published on Mar 9, 2016)
Marie spent a couple of moment gasping for breath and reputedly asking if all this was a joke, as the proposal took place on Howard Stern’s show.
However, Keven said that Howard Stern’s show was the one they would listen to while living off of twin mattress in a basement where they discussed the future. He said,
“This show has meant so much to both of us, it’s the first thing we listened to together 19 years on that basement on a twin mattress and I said one day you would be on that show and you will be a star. And here you are and here we are and…. It’s like why not make it official now.”
Things Their Relationship Went Through:
While Keven and Maria acknowledged their days of hardships living in a basement, it was not the end. Keven at first was rejected by Maria’s parents and family, who belong to the Greek culture; they wanted someone from the same culture.
Keven, being a non-greek, turned them off which pretty much led to Maria being disowned by her family, which eventually led them to live in the basement in the first place.
After the couple managed to gather themselves, Maria’s parents also accepted their relationship.
Another major problem for the couple was when Maria got diagnosed with a benign brain tumor. Maria had to leave E! after three years because of the tumor surgery. Fortunately, the tumor surgery was a success and Maria was back on her feet with some twitch here and there.
However, the surgery made Maria look at her life with fiancé a little differently. She suddenly wanted kids before getting married.
The actress, age 39, had already gone for IVF and freezing embryos after getting engaged to Keven.
“Last November, I had three embryos made, and we put them in the freezer. Then we did inseminations — IUI — because I was like, ‘Listen, I think we could probably have done this naturally, but what was happening before is that ovulation kits weren’t working for me. Last month, I did another egg retrieval, and I got two eggs … So now I’m realizing I have kids in a freezer.”
After the surgery, she was all about having kids, but after getting better.
'A few weeks after I was home from the surgery, I was like "We need to get married! We need to have kids! I can't wait anymore. But it's like "alright, let's get better first."'
However, before getting married, the couple were likely to have children. As per Maria,
“We’re trying to figure out the kid thing first because that’s the most time-pressing — and the most important.”
But not every plan carries out like it is supposed to, does it?

Later, the star writer revealed that he and his then-fiancee took upon the show's producer's half-hearted advice. And following the ceremony, the newly married duo hosted a brunch for their family and friends at their hotel. Speaking to PEOPLE, he spewed his excitement on being able to call Marie as "my wife."
“It’s been girlfriend for so long that it will be nice to finally, finally be able to say ‘my wife.'”
In less than two weeks, Kevan - once again - professed eagerness to start a family. The TV personality told PEOPLE:-
"We definitely want children. But I’m very concerned about her going through a pregnancy, and I would like to explore [using a] surrogate because her body has been through hell. I want a baby desperately, but I don’t want it to be at the risk of her health."
Nearly eight months after their New Year's Eve wedding, Kevan and his wife, Marie renewed their wedding vows in a ceremony organized by the latter's father, who had missed the initial celebration.
