Maria Menounos has only been a mom for a month, but she’s already thinking about baby No. 2.

“I want 50 more [kids],” the entertainment journalist told Us Weekly Wednesday while debuting her daughter, Athena.

“The joy that Athena has brought to this house — I want more of that,” she explained. “It feels so good.”

Menounos, 45, revealed that she and her husband, Keven Undergaro, have “one good embryo left” after welcoming their baby girl via surrogate in June.

“We’ll see,” she said of trying to give her infant a sibling. “It would have to be fast.”

The former “Extra” host is staying hopeful, telling the magazine that despite her and Undergaro’s “rough” decade of fertility struggles, she believes “all of the good stuff is ahead.”

One month after the couple married in December 2017, Menounos told People that she was looking into surrogacy to start a family.

She gave an update in July 2021, saying that the process was “not working” despite them “trying so hard.”

However, she broke the news on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in February that her and the producer’s first baby was on the way.

The duo shared their daughter’s sex in an April “Heal Squad x Maria Menounos” podcast episode.

While awaiting the little one, Menounos was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and had surgery to remove a 3.9-centimeter tumor, part of her pancreas, her spleen, a fibroid and 17 lymph nodes.

“I [was] like, ‘How could God finally bless me with a baby after 10 years, and now I’m not going to meet her?’” the Daytime Emmy winner told “Today” show viewers in May of her diagnosis. “Then I realized, it doesn’t make sense, and that’s when I shifted [my mindset].”

She celebrated her recovery by revealing her surgery scars in an Instagram post earlier this month, saying that the sight of them makes her “smile.”
