Former ‘The View’ co-host Debbie Matenopoulos, 39, shared a double dose of news with People Magazine – she’s married and pregnant!
Matenopoulos married Jon Falcone, a 36-year-old photographer, in Greece over the summer after two years of dating. The two met through mutual friends in 2012 and have been together since.
“I eloped in Greece and I’m four months pregnant!” she tells People.
She continued: “We had a secret eloping ceremony at a title monastery. I’ll do a proper wedding after I have the baby.”
The TV personality was in Greece working on her new recipe book, “It’s All Greek to Me,” when she decided to elope. This is Matenopoulos’ second marriage, but her first child. The baby is due in October, but she isn’t sure she wants to know the baby’s gender just yet.
As for any strange cravings she’s having: “I’m not craving anything per se, but I have become ravenously hungry. I’d wake up in the middle of the night and chug orange juice and I’ve never liked orange juice! I’m a monster.”
On May 15, pregnant Matenopoulos will join all of the present and former co-hosts of ‘The View’ for Barbara Walter’s special farewell episode.
