Maria Menounos will surely always remember 2017 as one of the most memorable years of her life. After undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor back in June, she decided to end the monumental 12 months on a happier note, by marrying her partner of 20 years, Keven Undergaro, on a live New Year鈥檚 Eve show.

Hosting Fox鈥檚 New Year鈥檚 Eve extravaganza last night in New York, the 39-year-old had a big surprise for her parents, Constantine and Lisa Menounos, who were in the crowd. 鈥淸We鈥檙e getting] married,鈥 she told her mom and dad, who were both shocked and thrilled. When her dad mistakenly thought his daughter meant that wedding plans were finally in the works, she corrected him by saying, 鈥淥h no, Dad鈥 We鈥檙e not getting married in the church, because we鈥檙e getting married right here tonight in Times Square.鈥

Explaining why she and her love had decided to finally tie the knot after so long, Menounos told her mom (who is currently battling stage 4 brain cancer) that Kris Jenner had given her some words of wisdom on Christmas Eve, saying, 鈥淭omorrow鈥檚 never promised.鈥 Wanting her mother to be a part of her wedding, Menounos added, 鈥淚 love you and I want you to be there.鈥

She also took to social media to let her fans in on the big news, tweeting, 鈥淥mg! I can鈥檛 believe we are finally getting married after 20 years! Tune in to #nye on @foxtv to watch us get hitched in just a few!#coldestbridever鈥

Engaged since 2016, when Undergaro popped the question on the Howard Stern Show, Menounos and her new husband aren鈥檛 the type to rush into anything. But the wait was definitely worth it.

In the ceremony, which was officiated by none other than Steve Harvey 鈥 who admitted on air that he had been ordained only 48 hours earlier 鈥 the pair said 鈥淚 do鈥 in freezing temperatures (12 degrees, to be exact) while the bride wore a gorgeous Atelier Pronovias 2018 Collection lace gown. It might not have provided a lot of heat, but it was undeniably stunning.

鈥淚 got to spend the last 20 years with the greatest human being I have ever known. Maria, you are a blessing not just to my life, but to this whole world,鈥 the groom told his bride during their vows. She responded in kind, saying, 鈥淵ou鈥檝e loved me, you鈥檝e cared for me, in sickness and in health. Honestly, the way you helped me and my family in these hard times, I just wanted to marry you so bad.鈥

This was a sentiment she also echoed in the January 2018 issue of Women鈥檚 Health. 鈥淜even鈥檚 been my savior. He never left my side in the hospital. I was crying, 鈥業 just want to get married! I want to have kids!鈥 I鈥檝e been pushing the wedding thing, but he said, 鈥楲isten, I鈥檓 working on something.鈥 For a minute, the type A came right back: 鈥榊ou can鈥檛 surprise me with a wedding! I need a dress!鈥 But he said, 鈥榊ou鈥檙e on a need-to-know basis.鈥 I think he really doesn鈥檛 want me to stress.鈥

It certainly seemed like their New Year鈥檚 Eve nuptials were stress-free and all about the happily-ever-after. Congratulations to the loving pair and their adoring family!
