Debbie Matenopoulous, one of the original cohosts of ABC's "The View," quietly got married last summer and is now four months pregnant.

Matenopoulos, 39, met her future husband, photographer Jon Falcone, through mutual friends two years ago. She told People magazine that she and Falcone, 36, decided to get hitched in Greece while shooting for her upcoming recipe book, "It's All Greek to Me."

"I eloped in Greece and I'm four months pregnant," Matenopoulos told the magazine last week. "We had a secret eloping ceremony at a title monastery. I'll do a proper wedding after I have the baby."

Matenopoulos, who returned to "The View" as a guest on Monday, told People that she's holding off on discovering the sex of her baby.

"I don't know if I want to know or not," she said. "I've already had three ultrasounds and I'm due in October."

One things she does know, though, is that her hunger pains have kicked into high gear.

"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," she said.

This is Matenopoulos' second marriage. She divorced Jay Faires in 2008.

"I am the luckiest girl in the world!" Matenopoulos told the New York Daily News. "Family is everything to me, and there is no better job than that of a mother."

She will be back on "The View" stage for Barbara Walters' final show May 16.

"I'm so excited and honored to go back to where it all began and share in Barbara (Walters') last show with all of the other cohosts," Matenopoulos said to E! News last week. "Barbara is an icon and a living legend and changed the game for women in journalism."

"Because she was a trailblazer in this business, it has allowed us opportunities that would have never been possible before. There will never be another Barbara Walters. It is truly the end of an era," she continued.
