Maria Menounos Reveals That Her Mom Litsa Has Died From Brain Cancer

Maria Menounos shared some sad news with her fans this weekend – her mom, Litsa, has sadly passed away.

The 42-year-old television correspondent revealed the news on her social media pages with a tribute to her mother, who died after battling stage 4 brain cancer for more than four years.

“RIP mom. 💔 God loved her so much he took her on greek easter,” Maria wrote in her caption, alongside a heartbreaking image of her on the bed with her mom and hugging her close.

She also added “Christ is risen mom” in Greek.

Following the news, many celebs shared their condolences in the comments.

“We send you so much love. Our deepest condolences Maria,” Zoe Saldana wrote to her.

Nikki Bella added, “RIP ❤️ sending you and the fam so much love light and prayers. 🤍.”

Late last year, Maria opened up about her parents, and how they had both been hospitalized with COVID-19.

That update also revealed that Litsa‘s brain tumor had grown.

“Monday before Thanksgiving, my mom had her regular appointments at Cedars for her brain cancer. So she had her MRI, she had her infusions,” Maria shared at the time. “But we got some not-so-great news on Monday, I think that’s November 23, that my mom’s brain tumor was growing.”

However, Maria told People that she and her husband aren’t expecting just yet. “We are still in progress,” she says, “Not pregnant yet! That’s the plan, and we will share good news when we can.”

In an earlier episode of the show, Maria also shared that bringing up her future children helped her mother stay motivated during her health battles. She explained, “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.”

Both of Maria‘s parents were hospitalized with coronavirus in December – read what she had to say about their diagnosis here.

Maria Menounos Is Expecting Babies With Husband Keven Undergaro & Hints About A Move to Nashville

Maria Menounos has hinted that she’s expecting children with her husband, Keven Undergaro.

During her Better Together show, the 42-year-old television personality revealed that babies are on the way and that the couple are also entertaining a movie to Nashville.

“We are definitely entertaining this, by the way,” she shared about the move. “… 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.”

Maria added “especially in the kid phase of our lives, [I] want something different. … I think Nashville might be Mama Bear’s bed.”

This isn’t the first time Maria has talked about her and Keven‘s children. She did so in the December 15 episode as well, saying that grandkids were a key point in helping her mother through a health battle.

“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 shared. “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!”

Maria revealed earlier in December that her mother and father both had been diagnosed with coronavirus.

Keven and Maria have been married since 2017, where they got married on New Year’s Eve in Times Square.

Maria Menounos Reveals Both of Her Parents Have Been Hospitalized with COVID-19

It’s been a draining past few weeks for Maria Menounos.

The 42-year-old entertainment reporter revealed during a recent episode of her podcast Conversations with Maria Menounos that both her mom Litsa and dad Costas have been hospitalized with coronavirus.

Even before her parents tested positive, Maria‘s mom received some rough news about her mom’s brain tumor.

“Monday before Thanksgiving, my mom had her regular appointments at Cedars for her brain cancer. So she had her MRI, she had her infusions,” Maria explained. “But we got some not-so-great news on Monday, I think that’s November 23, that my mom’s brain tumor was growing.”

Maria first revealed that her mom had a brain tumor back in 2016. A year later, Maria was also diagnosed with a brain tumor.

On November 24, Maria‘s mom’s caretaker had called in sick, so Maria and husband Kevin Undergaro flew to Los Angeles to help care for her mom.

“We land, and that’s when this all started,” Maria recalled. “I’m just going to share that we’re still in process right now, and we still need as many prayers as you can spare and as you can share. But a long story short of it all is within a few hours both of my parents were diagnosed with COVID.”

“First it was my mom, they had rushed her to the hospital when I landed and I found out and then a few hours later my dad tested positive,” she continued. “It was absolutely surreal.”

Maria went on to share that her parents are currently at separate hospitals in L.A.

“It has been an incredible challenge,” Maria said while getting choked up. “You work so hard to keep your parents healthy and alive, I mean at least I have. To see something like this happen.”

Maria also added how grateful she is for all the doctors and nurses that are taking care of her parents.

“Luckily, we’ve had incredible doctors, incredible nurses, incredible friends, and incredible family, that have lifted up and helped us in this time,” Maria said.
