Maria Menounos Paddle Boards in Mexico while vacationing with longtime beau... and brings her strict Greek parents who once disowned her over the relationship 

They are just one big happy family.

Maria Menounos brought her parents, Litsa and Costas, along when she and her beau of 17 years, Keven Undergaro, enjoyed a break in Loreto, in Mexico last week.

But things weren't always so good between the 36-year-old and her strict Greek mum and dad. She admitted last year that they disowned her after she bought home the Italian-American when she was just 19-years-old.

However, her father Costas apologised when her career took off in Hollywood some years later, thanks to a demo reel that Keven created.

And he and Maria's mother Litsa, looked delighted to join their daughter and Keven at the exclusive Villa del Palmar resort, midway between Tijuana and Cabo San Lucas.

While her parents relaxed, the E! Entertainment correspondent and her director-producer boyfriend enjoyed more energetic pursuits.

The celebrity showed off her enviably slender figure and tiny waist in a blue-and-white striped crop top that ended just below the bust and matching string bikini bottoms as she paddle boarded on the dead calm Sea of Cortez off the coast of Loreto.

She changed into a white bikini to go kayaking with Keven around the resort's private bay.The couple also hiked in the scenic mountains around the area, with Maria sharing some shots of the beautiful countryside on Instagram on Friday and Sunday.

In honor of the anniversaries being celebrated by Maria and her parents, Villa del Palmar's executive chef Alfonso prepared a special meal for both couples at the resort's fine dining restaurant, Danzante.

A compilation picture showed Maria on a pebbly beach, a selfie with her father and boyfriend behind her and another of her and a topless Keven hiking.

It was captioned: 'This was the perfect place for us...lots of great hiking trails! found this private beach where the water was so clear! #loreto @villadelpalmar #mexico.'

And the journalist became her own style reporter, posting a double shot of herself in a dark grey blouse, teeny white shorts and sandals, saying: 'Vacation fashion: @calypsostbarth shorts @talbots top @ipanemausa sandals.

But all good things must come to an end and the couple are now back in Los Angeles at work on their various projects, including AfterBuzz TV.
