In a recent interview, Menounos made her first public reference to the surrogate mother who gave birth to her daughter.

As she told Today: "Bringing my daughter up in the Greek community is going to be really important, giving her those strong roots, going to church and letting her know it's (good) to have and be a good member of the community."

“When you’re met with a potential death sentence, everything changes,” she told People at the time. “I need people to know there are places they can go to catch things early. You can’t let fear get in the way. I had that moment where I thought I was a goner — but I’m OK because I caught this early enough.”

In February 2023, Menounos and Undergaro announced they were expecting a baby with help from a surrogate.
