It’s a happy, happy day for Giuliana and Bill Rancic! The couple, who first experienced infertility and miscarriage, and then endured Giuliana’s treatment for breast cancer, have announced that their son was born last night in Denver via gestational surrogate.
Edward Duke Rancic was born at 10:12 p.m. Wednesday and weighed 7 pounds and 4 ounces, E! Online reports.
Here’s more details from E! Online:
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives,” Giuliana tells E! News exclusively. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
The couple exclusively tells E! News that labor was just over four hours and went smoothly and relatively quickly. Both Bill and Giuliana were in the delivery room for the entire birth of their baby. They couldn’t hold back tears of joy the moment their son was born. The Rancics told us they were beyond elated and couldn’t believe their journey to become parents is finally complete.
Bill cut the umbilical cord minutes after the baby was born, and Giuliana was the first to hold her son for a long while, then gave him to Bill to embrace. The new parents both fed their baby, who they say had a big appetite, and share with us that he is doing incredibly well and has had his first bath.
Giuliana, the host of E! News, and Bill, a businessman who won the first season of the reality show “The Apprentice,” have documented their journey as a married couple on the Style Network reality series “Giuliana and Bill.”

Giuliana and Bill Rancic, the couple who first went through infertility and miscarriage, and then endured Giuliana’s treatment for breast cancer, have revealed that they are expecting a baby boy who is being carried by a surrogate. From the New York Daily News:
After teasing fans and family about the gender of their baby, Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill finally revealed at a baby shower Sunday that they are expecting a baby boy via surrogate.
The couple gave guests the option of choosing either pink or blue party favors, representing their individual guesses about whether the Rancics would be having a little son or daughter.
“It’s a boy,” Giuliana’s mother Anna DePandi told E! News prior to the big reveal. “The first child is always a boy.”

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 PEOPLE.com, 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.”
