Is a baby on the way? We have learned that Maria Menounos is planning to start a family now that her cancer battle is behind her.
While in attendance at the 2018 NBA Awards in Los Angeles the celeb shared the fact that she is seriously considering welcoming a child into the world.
‘It’d be really nice if there was one in here right now. I think we’re ready to figure it out. They only weird thing is that I froze embryos and now I can’t implant them because if I implant them and do all the hormones, the tumor will grow [back.] So, there is one way around it that we’re investigating right now and then otherwise a surrogate.’
She went on to say that ‘Keven [Undergaro, her husband] actually texted me yesterday and said, ‘That’s it. I’m ready.’’
As fans of the TV personality are aware, Menounos was unfortunately diagnosed with a brain tumor at the beginning of last year, and it even happened at the same time her mom was also battling cancer.
The tumor, which was benign was removed in June of 2017 and the surgery took no less than seven hours.
While at the event, she admitted that it felt pretty good to be on the red carpet for the first time since she beat cancer.
Talking about why she shared her struggles and journey to recovery with the world, she said: ‘There’s the practical part of it when you realize you have 40 first cousins. You can’t keep a secret. It was hard enough to keep it a secret as I made it through surgery. It was important to all of us that I made it to the other side safely and then tell everyone.’
‘It’s actually helped a lot of people who are in these random, surreal moments too. I’m finding out more and more examples of family members who have the same dynamic – a mother and a daughter have the same situation, or a father and a daughter, so they don’t feel as alone either,’ she added.
