Maria Menounos is proud of her bikini body — and she should be! The E! News host shared a photo of her svelte physique via Instagram on Tuesday, May 31, and updated fans about her struggle with in vitro fertilization.

“After months & months of Ivf treatments and not feeling myself…I am happy to be able to post this picture & say I feel like me again,” Menounos, 37, wrote alongside a snap of herself in a yellow two-piece. “It takes its toll on you physically&emotionally. Hell I spent an entire episode of my @siriusxmstars show crying one day bc of it all! After a few weeks of @piyoworkout & achieving my step count of 10,000 steps a day(most days going way above that) I feel back to normal! Anyone going through Ivf knows what I'm talking about. This vacation was soo necessary & I feel blessed I was able to take it! #nofilter.”

The newly engaged EveryGirl's Guide to Cooking author has been soaking up the sun on vacation in Mexico with her fiancé, Keven Undergaro.

The former Extra cohost informed fans last March that she’s taking steps toward parenthood. In a series of Snapchat videos, Menounos documented her egg-retrieval procedure. Menounos told Dr. Drew Pinsky in 2011 that she had frozen her eggs because she wasn’t ready yet.

“I figured this is kind of an insurance policy,” she said at the time.

Undergaro proposed to Menounos with a stunning round diamond engagement ring after 19 years of dating. He surprised her by popping the question during an interview on The Howard Stern Show last March.
