Maria was born in Medford, Massachusetts on June 8, 1978.
She is the daughter of Greek parents Costas and Litsa Menounos.
“I just knew from day one when I met Maria that she was going to be a star," the TV producer recalled to AOL.
“We spent so many nights clinging to each other crying and it was terrible."Undergaro, however, was confident in their plan.
She appeared in the TV correspondent for Today, Access Hollywood and Extra.
She also co-hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2006 in Athens, Greece.
*She placed second in the Miss Massachusetts USA 2000.
Lots of crazy things go down on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show, and on Wednesday morning, Maria Menounos got engaged to longtime boyfriend Keven Undergaro. News personality, who visited Stern to promote her cookbook, "The Every Girl's Guide to Cooking," was chatting with the shock jock when he brought up the fact that she and Undergaro had been together for 19 years and hadn't tied the knot -- a recurring question for the couple. This is the first thing we listened to together 19 years ago in a basement on a twin mattress and I said one day you'll be on that show and you'll be a star. "The choice of color and origin of the stone adds thoughtful detail only he and Maria will know and see."Follow me on Twitter @Nardine Saad.
