The Real Story Behind Maria Menounos' Surprise New Year's Eve Wedding

Between helping her mother fight brain cancer and battling the disease herself, Women's Health cover star Maria Menounos had a crazy 2017—but she ended it on a high note when she got married in a surprise wedding on live TV. Maria was co-hosting Fox’s New Year’s Eve broadcast with Steve Harvey when she had a segment with her mom and dad. Maria announced that she and her partner of 20 years, Keven Undergaro, planned to get married soon, and then revealed that they were actually going to do it that night in New York City’s Time’s Square. (The couple got engaged in 2016 on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM radio show.) A post shared by ❤️MARIA MENOUNOS (@mariamenounos) on Dec 31, 2017 at 7:18pm PST So, just before midnight, Maria put on a Pronovias lace gown with a matching coat, reports People, and exchanged “I do”s with Keven. Steve, naturally, officiated. Maria, who had two weeks to plan everything, says the idea started with a random suggestion from a producer, who mentioned that they wanted to try to incorporate a live wedding into the show. “She said, ‘Unless you and Keven want to get married.’ And I was like, ‘Ha, ha, no,’” Maria told People. “I was nervous but I got in the car and kept thinking about it and I was like, ‘Wait, this really is kind of perfect.’” (Kick-start your new, healthy routine with Women's Health's 12-Week Total-Body Transformation!) Maria says she texted Keven, only to find out that he was planning a “bombshell” wedding of his own. “So I get this text and little does she know that I’ve been talking to Beth Stern [and] Howard Stern for about a year, coming up with a date to do a surprise wedding on his show,” Keven said. “We had everything planned out. She sends me this text and I’m freezing, Now what do I do?” See what Maria Menounos has to say about living with a brain tumor: The couple only told a few people and Maria says the whole thing ended up being perfect. “I really truly believe that it’s taken us this long [to get married] because of the pressures of putting a wedding together,” she said. “I’ve always wanted it to be super intimate and even though this is the opposite, we can only invite our immediate family, so the pressure of who to invite is gone. This was just so perfect.” After they got hitched, Maria and Keven hosted a small celebration at their hotel, followed by brunch with friends and family. Maria says that a very public wedding was "not something that would have ever crossed my mind," but now New York holds a very special place in her heart.
