"We are definitely entertaining this, by the way," she gushed. "It is beautiful, [and] we are going to have a family. We want to raise them somewhere where there will be kids next door to play with and you’re not afraid. L.A. just doesn’t have that."

"Especially in the kid phase of our lives, [I] want something different. … I think Nashville might be Mama Bear’s bed," she added. 

On Tuesday, December 15, she shared that the prospect of her having children was helping her mother amid her battle with COVID-19.

"The thing I keep saying to my mom is, 'We’re going to get better every minute of every day, Mom. Every minute of every day we’re getting better and better.' … That’s my mantra," she recalled.

"Yesterday, I said to her, 'You gotta get strong, you gotta hang on — you’ve got grandchildren coming, and they might even be showing up...' well, they’re definitely showing up next year. I was gonna say around a certain time, but I won’t share yet because I don’t wanna — anyway!"

The past few years have been intense for the television personality. In 2017, Menounos revealed that she had a brain tumor the size of a golf ball and had surgery to remove it.

Menounos dismissed the symptoms — headaches and blurry vision — since she was busy but went to the doctor with what she believed to be an ear infection. "As I listed the symptoms, I said 'Oh my God, I think I have a brain tumor like my mom, but I know you are going to think I'm crazy,'" she recalled.

"And he goes: 'No, let's get an MRI and get it checked.' And then, lo and behold, I had it."

While Menounos didn’t say how the babies were coming, the couple has discussed surrogacy in the past.

"We definitely want children but I'm very concerned about her going through a pregnancy, and I would like to explore [using a] surrogate because her body has been through hell. I want a baby desperately, but I don't want it to be at the risk of her health," Undergaro said in 2019.

In 2019, Menounos said that "Keven finally sent in our paperwork to the surrogate agency ... You never know. Maybe by next Christmas we'll have little Marias and Kevens running around."

Menounos and Undergaro tied the knot in 2017. 

Congrats to the happy couple!
