By the way, the couple got engaged on air too when Keven came to shoot The Howard Stern Show. This was a long-expected proposal since the two had been together for almost 20 years!

Wedding idea

Maria and Keven said they had only two weeks to prepare for the wedding, and the idea of broadcasting was inspired by a suggestion from the producer of the Fox New Year’s Eve special. She mentioned that they would like some couple to marry in Times Square unless Undergaro and Menounos wanted to.

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.

Health issues

Menounos earlier revealed that she was fighting a serious illness. The star of the E! channel admitted that in April, she had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Maria had recently undergone a seven-hour surgery, during which doctors removed the tumor. The mother of Maria, Litsa Menounos, is currently undergoing a difficult period and is fighting the same brain cancer – she was diagnosed with a stage 4 glioblastoma.

It’s so surreal and crazy and unbelievable that my mom has a brain tumor—and now I have one too?

During her stay at the hospital, Keven did not leave Menounos and supported her in every possible way.

The doctors told Maria that there is 6-7% that the tumor will come back. But right now, everything is in order.
