Maria Menounos married her partner of 20 years for the second time

Everybody loves weddings, right? I enjoy them, so I can kind of understand former E! News reporter Maria Menonous’ decision to marry her longtime partner, Keven Undergaro, again. I think it’s the third, not the second time that’s the charm, but, you never know.

The 40-year-old personality and her 50-year-old spouse were first married on this past New Year’s Eve during FOX’s live coverage. The couple said “I do” shortly before the ball dropped in a freezing cold Times Square with a quickie wedding officiated by Steve Harvey (who was ordained 48 hours prior to the ceremony). They decided to make it legal once more in a celebration in Maria’s family’s homeland of Greece on Saturday.

Prior to her second big day, Maria told Us Magazine that, “It’s gonna be a wild journey,” adding “Trying to plan something internationally when your dad’s running the show is a reality show.” She describe her dad as a “bridezilla,” and admitted that, “I just have decided I’m gonna drink heavily to get through. By the time I land, I’m gonna be nip queen.”

Maria, who was wed in a beautiful lace gown from the Atelier Pronovias 2018 Collection for wedding #1, opted for lace again. For her second wedding she was in for an off-the-shoulder lace creation from designer Celia Kritharioti, who also used silk organza, hand-painted flowers and a veil made from silk tulle to complete the look. The designer posted a photo from one of the fittings and congratulated the couple.

Maria and Keven had a festive rehearsal dinner on Friday night at Museum Restaurant where they shared a traditional Greek dance known as a zeimpekiko. For the festivities, Maria wore a forest green Veronica Beard dress and Stuart Weitzman heels. She posted the look on Instagram with the caption, “Time for some fun! #preweddingparty.” I love that dress.

Before the ceremony, Maria shared some heartfelt thoughts in a video. She admitted:

“I’ve been planning this for maybe a month but really been planning this for a long time in my heart because I always wanted to return to Greece and do our wedding here. Greece means so much to us and our village and our roots and I’m so beyond thankful to all of our friends who put this together.”

“Honestly, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I have the best husband, I have the best family, nothing is without its problems and nothing’s perfect but I am so blessed and so so happy today that we get to do this amazing wedding in this beautiful village that I want to move to although I think Keven may divorce me and that would kind of suck.”

Maria also posted shots from the ceremony and it sure looked like a great time was had by all. Maria’s been through a lot, especially having to deal with a brain tumor at 39. She and Keven have been together for over twenty years, so more power to them.

    I must admit.

    I crush on her a bit.

    • LA Native says:

      Eric, have you ever heard her laugh? Its pretty crazy.
      It might cure your crush LOL

    • kellybean says:

      She looks absolutely stunning in that instagram video. I love the makeup.

      I don’t think I have ever watched anything she has done (what has she done? Is she an actress?) but after reading what another person posted here about her parents, she is obviously, a kind and forgiving person.

    I wish them a lifetime of health and happiness.

    Anytime I read anything about Maria, all I can think about is her telling the story of how she has been with Keven since she was 19 years old, and her parents were so pissed off that he wasn’t Greek that they actually disowned her, left her homeless, took away her education that they had been paying for, and only began talking to her again after she moved with Keven to LA and they both got jobs on TV. Her parents now live with her and Keven in their multi-million dollar home, and she has paid for her mom’s medical care as her mom also battles a brain tumor. I know people can be dumb and eventually evolve, but that story has always particularly disgusted me. Maria and Keven are good people because that is some seriously toxic shit that her parents pulled.

    • Esmom says:

      Wow, I had no idea. How sad. And how amazing that she and Keven were able to move past it and care for her mom. They seem like a lovely couple, so good looking too.

    • kellybean says:

      I would never forgive my parents for that. Just because my boyfriend wasn’t what THEY wanted? What assholes. Just because they are your parents doesn’t mean you have to forgive. They are much better people than me.

    I’m completely fine with this. My husband has stuck by me through so much. Even when I felt like I didn’t deserve it. We’ve been together for 16 years and I would marry him over and over again if I could.

  4. Sojaschnitzel says:

    I have no idea who this woman is (hello from europe!) but I am very happy for her and for the rest of us aswell. Having just lost the man that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, seeing others this happy gives me back a little bit of hope.

    • AMA1977 says:

      I’m sorry for your loss, and think it is so sweet and giving that you said that seeing their happiness gives you hope. I wish peace and happiness for you.

  5. Renee2 says:

    She just seems like the nicest person and she has been through so much. This story makes me very happy and the photos are beautiful. I like how he leans his head against her in the photos, it seems like they are truly connected. This is just a nice story to read about right now.

  6. TheOriginalMia says:

    I’m so happy for her and Keven. The hell her parents put them through. Ridiculous! I’m glad they stuck together and have had some amazing weddings. I love the lemon themed party. Simply gorgeous!
