Giuliana and Bill Rancic, the couple who first went through infertility and miscarriage, and then endured Giuliana’s treatment for breast cancer, finally has good news to share–they are expecting a child late this summer. According to news reports, the couple is using a gestational surrogate to carry their child. The baby is genetically Giuliana and Bill’s. The LA Times reports:
“It’s incredible,” Giuliana said on the “Today” show. “We’ve been trying for so long, we’ve been through so much, and, especially we just had such a hard year last year with the breast cancer and everything and to finally get that call from the doctor of, you’re pregnant — or, you’re having a baby!
“I’m not quite pregnant, but you know what I mean, we’re pregnant!,” the bubbly red carpet host said. “It was just, it was another world, on another level.”
The Rancics have documented their journey as a married couple on the Style Network reality series “Giuliana and Bill.”

Giuliana Rancic, the E! television personality who also has a reality program on the Style Network, has decided to undergo a double mastectomy to treat her breast cancer. Rancic and her husband, a former winner of Donald Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice,” have chronicled their journey to start a family through in-vitro fertilization in public, and the couple is also being public about their breast cancer journey.
In October, Rancic announced her cancer diagnosis, revealing it at a time when her fans had hoped she’d be announcing a pregnancy. Today she told E! Online that she is afraid heading into the mastectomy, but optimistic that the surgery will “save [her] life” and enable her to move on to live a full and healthy life.
“Am I scared? Yes. Scared of the unknown. Scared of the pain,” Giuliana confesses. “But I’m not scared of what I’ll be like. I’ll have scars, but I like scars. Scars are beautiful because they tell a story.
“I’ll be able to say that I survived something major and it’s made me stronger. I will be a better woman for it.”
