Giuliana and Bill Rancic to Try IVF One More Time

Giuliana and Bill Rancic, whose Style Network reality show Giuliana and Bill has chronicled their efforts to start a family, have revealed that they are going to attempt in-vitro fertilization (IVF) for a third and final time in the near future.

Giuliana, a host for E! News, and Bill, a businessman who won Donald Trump’s inaugural season of The Apprentice, suffered a miscarriage after their first IVF cycle.  Their second cycle did not produce a pregnancy.  According to, if a third cycle does not work, they will pursue adoption from Giuliana’s native city of Naples, Italy:

“When we were in Italy recently I felt very connected to Naples, where I’m from. We thought it would be really wonderful to be able to adopt a child from where I’m from and give a child there some opportunity,” Rancic explains.

Much to her surprise, however, news of the possibility of a foreign adoption struck a chord on Twitter.

“I got some Tweets … of people saying, ‘You should adopt from America’ and ‘A lot of kids need help’ and of course that’s true, but you know what? How can you tell a woman where she should adopt from?’” she questions. ”You’ve got to follow your heart. So if it’s a foreign country, if it’s in your backyard … A child is a child.”
