Bill and Giuliana Rancic have been open about building their family via surrogacy—the E! Stars are parents to 21-month-old son Duke, who was born via surrogate in 2012—and now People reports some sad news: The couple's surrogate, Delphine, recently suffered a miscarriage.
"She was about nine weeks pregnant. We were pretty close to getting into the safe zone," Rancic told the magazine, adding, "We experienced a miscarriage years ago when we were trying with Giuliana, so we had been keeping the pregnancy news tight to the vest."
Not surprising, Bill says he and Giuliana "were devastated."
But the couple, whose reality TV show, Giuliana and Bill, has prominently featured their desire to add to their family this season, aren't giving up.
"We're fighters. Hopefully we're going to have good news and Delphine will be on board one more time," he said. "We've had to battle it out and that's something that we're going to continue to do."
We wish them all the best...
