Who is maria menounos dating 2016
The beauty has always been very open about her father not accepting Keven at first because he "wasn't Greek." But time's have changed!
The producer popped the question on what just so happened to be Maria's parents' 41st wedding anniversary. After Stern pressured the couple about why they haven't tied the knot, MM responded: "It was so emotional to hear you say everything, because listening to everything you said there, back when were in the green room talking about what you've been through, I've been through, too…when we wanted to be together, we couldn't because people didn't want us together.
Then, Undergaro came out, and said, "Although I said that this isn't a proposal I want to ask you something, Maria," then got down on one knee. "Menounos, at first, seemed confused, but excitedly said yes.
So now that she and her longtime beau are headed for wedded bliss, I can't help but want to know more about him. He's worked on short comedy films, full-feature films, and he and Menounos created After Buzz TV , which is a podcast that features TV recaps.

She told Hollywood Life in 2014, "Keven has been comfortable being the man behind the woman for so many years, and that’s such a great example for men that it is OK." She also told Parade in 2014, Keven has not been in the public eye ever. Menounos is of Greek Orthodox descent, and she has said her parents were not pleased with her dating someone of a different background.
She told AOL, "He wasn't Greek so my dad was very upset, pretty much disowned me, took my education away...
I was now pretty much homeless, no education, no degree, but I had Keven." Undergaro called the beginning of their relationship "Romeo and Juliet without ending in full tragedy." Yikes. They happened to be celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary and joined the newly engaged couple on Stern's show. I have a feeling the future will bring nothing but happiness to both of them!
Undergaro and Menounos do not have children together, but they do have a full house: They've adopted three Bichon Frises named Benjamin, Winnie, and Baby, who enjoy plenty of fame on Undergaro's Twitter and Instagram accounts.
