Giuliana and Bill Rancic expecting baby

E! News host Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill are expecting their first child.
The reality TV couple – currently starring in a fifth season of Style Network’s “Giuliana & Bill” – confirmed the news Monday to E! Online. The baby is due in late summer via a gestational surrogate. The Rancics will be the genetic parents.
“We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered” – Giuliana (37) said. “We received an incredible amount of love and prayers from viewers around the world” – she said, “and we want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them for their love.”
Bill (40) added: “We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey.”
Giuliana’s quest for motherhood is well documented, including her battle against infertility, a miscarriage in 2010 and finally a diagnosis of breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy last December.

E! News co-host Giuliana Rancic – who has survived a miscarriage, breast cancer and double mastectomy – joined her husband and fellow reality-show star Bill Rancic Monday to announce they are having a baby.
The couple told E! Monday that their first child is due in late summer via gestational carrier, which differs from a surrogate in that the embryo implanted in the carrier is biologically that of the Rancics. The gestational carrier brings the baby to term but is genetically unrelated to the child.
Learning that their banked embryo had resulted in a pregnancy “was pretty much one of the best moments of my life, if not the best moment of my life” – Giuliana Rancic told Ann Curry when the couple appeared on NBC’s “Today.” “We’ve been trying for so long, we’ve been through so much. We had such a hard year last year with the breast cancer and everything, and to finally get that call from the doctor. . . . It was just another world – like, on another level.”
The couple had had “two embryos that we had banked prior to learning about the breast cancer” – Bill Rancic said. “And with the [cancer] medicine [Giuliana has] going on, this was our last effort.”
The couple met their “baby mama,” as Giuliana gratefully called the carrier, through the Colorado clinic where Giuliana had undergone in vitro fertilization treatments and gotten her cancer diagnosis. The couple’s doctor “hooked us up with [an] agency and he helped us find her. And she’s just a dream come true.”
The woman, whom they did not identify, lives out of state. “So we go visit her every month, we go to all the doctors’ appointments” – Giuliana said. “So we see the baby growing and it’s very exciting.”
After all her health issues, she said, she has learned that “the more you focus on the positive, the more you are grateful for the good things in your life, the more good things come to you. And I’ve really seen that. I have a great husband, I have a wonderful family and now I have a baby on the way. I mean, what more can I ask for, really?”

Snaps and Claps to E!’s Giuliana Rancic and hubs, former “Apprentice” champ Bill Rancic. They announced on the “Today” show Monday that they are expecting a baby via gestational surrogate. “To finally get that call from the doctor that you’re pregnant and you’re having a baby … ” – Giuliana said. “It was just another world.” They know the sex of the baby but they’re keeping it a secret.
We’re more excited for this baby bump than for other celebs’, who seem to use children as a way to up their Q Score. On their Style Network reality series “Giuliana & Bill,” the couple were open about their desire for a baby and how difficult it was for them to conceive. They talked about it openly and, with a dollop of reality-TV drama, shared the stress it put on their relationship. In 2010, Giuliana announced she had had a miscarriage. Last year, she a had breast cancer and a double mastectomy, once again taking her struggle public rather than hiding behind a flawless celebrity facade in which problems are trotted out only when redemption is sought or books need selling. These episodes didn’t feel staged by some Kris Kardashian-esque reality overlord. They were slices of real life from a couple going through the same difficulties that so many suffer. It was one time when it felt right to say: “Stars! They’re just like us!” So we send all the congratulatory vibes we can to Bill and Giuliana. Enjoy that kid.
