Maria Menounos, beaming and grateful, announces a baby is on the way — with some help

Maria Menounos and Keven Undergaro are expecting a baby through surrogacy.

The couple had been trying in vitro fertilization since 2012 and began considering surrogacy in 2018.

Menounos thanked actors Zoe Saldaña and Kim Kardashian for their support during her journey.

Kardashian helped Menounos find the surrogate through an attorney.

The couple is "so grateful to the beautiful family helping us conceive our baby."

The first surrogate was medically incompatible in 2021.

The surrogacy process has been a "very frustrating process" for Menounos and Undergaro.

Undergaro said he wants a baby, but not at the risk of Menounos' health.

The couple started talking to a surrogacy agency in 2019.

Menounos announced the news on "Live With Kelly and Ryan" with a big smile on her face.
