A rep for the couple confirmed Menounos and Undergaro’s joyful baby news exclusively to PEOPLE in February.

“Just after a decade of trying everything, we are so grateful to the beautiful family helping us conceive our baby,” Menounos told PEOPLE. “Keven, my dad and I are all beyond excited for this soul to come into our lives. What a blessing.”

Speaking about the happy news on Live with Kelly and Ryan after sharing the big news, Menounos said she’s “so grateful” and “super excited” for her new addition.

“We’ve tried everything, literally everything,” she said of her fertility journey. “They tried to get me pregnant, that didn’t work. Keven had a surgery, that didn’t work. He’s hung me upside-down like a chicken, that didn’t work. We did everything. But we got so lucky.”

She then went on to thank Zoe Saldaña and Kim Kardashian for their help in her surrogacy journey.

“They both gave me their advice and people. Kim especially gave me this wonderful lawyer named Andy, he found me this woman Stephanie, who helped me find our surrogate,” she said.

“We’re just so so grateful because these people really help you bring life forward and without them we wouldn’t be able to do this,” Menounos continued. “Our surrogate and her family are literal angels, I’m so grateful that we’re going to have this extended family that our baby will be part of and we’re just so grateful to everybody that’s helped us along the way.”

Menounos’ exciting news was first reported by Us Weekly.
