Newly Engaged Maria Menounos Talks Wedding Plans and Surprise Proposal: 'I Thought He Was Joking'

Posted on

brightcove.createExperiences(); Maria Menounos admits she’s still “in shock” after her boyfriend of nearly 19 years surprised her with a proposal Wednesday during Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show.

“It was almost like I was on drugs,” she joked on SiriusXM’s Wake up with Taylor of how she felt after Keven Undergaro proposed

“I had no idea. I thought he was joking,” she said of when Undergaro started to propose. “Then this box came out and this ring. My jaw has been dropped since.”

Menounos admitted it’s too soon to think about wedding planning, but the prospect of doing something huge isn’t necessarily what she wants.

“That’s why I want to do it in Greece in a small church. Nice and beautiful,” said Menounos, 37.

Undergaro joked that he was glad he popped the question before his bride-to-be had a chance too – considering how long they’d been dating.

“It was the right time,” Undergaro said. “But also, if we waited longer she would have asked me. It’s like, ‘No. You’ve taken all the control in this relationship, and that’s great. But in this one thing can I please have just this much masculinity?’ ” he joked.

Menounos and Undergaro began dating in April 1998, and the two work together on their joint AfterBuzz TV online network.
