When Kevin Undergaro proposed to E! News host Maria Menounos on the Howard Stern radio show, she thought he was kidding. “I had no idea. I thought he was joking,” she told People. “Then this box came out and this ring. My jaw has been dropped since.”

The huge oval diamond engagement ring was custom made for the TV star by jeweler Jean Dousset, who worked with Undergaro to come up with the perfect design for his longtime girlfriend.

Menounos and Undergaro began dating in April 1998!

When asked about her wedding plans, Menounos said she didn’t want anything huge. “That’s why I want to do it in Greece in a small church. Nice and
beautiful.”
