Maria Menounos Freeze Eggs

The gorgeous ‘Extra’ host tells that she froze her eggs in order to focus on her career — do agree with this?

Maria Menounos wants kids — just not right now. We spoke to the 33-year-old TV host who recently went on Good Morning America and revealed that she had frozen eggs in order to ensure her fertility in years to come. She elaborated on her decision with us and says she wants to raise awareness so that women “know it’s an available option.”

“It’s the choice I made … the choice I want women to know is available,” she says. “Women are waiting later and later to have kids and I want to make sure I’m prepared and that it will be possible when it comes along later.”

Maria has been with her boyfriend Kevin Undergaro for 13 years but as of now she says marriage isn’t in the cards. She recently took a job in August to co-host Extra alongside her longtime friend Mario Lopez.

“I don’t think I’m ready for kids right now … it’s the hardest job in the world. I don’t think I’m ready for it. I know I’ll be a good mom one day. But I’m not super woman, I work a lot of hours it would be very difficult to balance both things. My parents are my kids because I’ve been taking care of them.

Maria is unconventional in all areas of her life. She and her boyfriend have never been married and they’re not even engaged!

“We’ve talked about [getting married] and we will do it at some point,” she says. “But I never felt I needed a paper to be married 13 years.”
