In another statement to People, she revealed they got the happy news "after a decade of trying." At first, Menounos attempted to get pregnant via IVF, but nothing worked, and she eventually decided to ditch that option after undergoing surgery for a benign brain tumor.

At one point, Menounos and her husband, 55, found a surrogate, but as they hashed out the details in 2021, they learned the woman wasn't a good match medically.

However, it all worked out in the end, thanks in part to the Extra host's positive attitude.
