On Monday, reality-TV couple Bill and Giuliana Rancic announced on the “Today” show that they are expecting their first child.
Beaming from ear-to-ear, Giuliana told Ann Curry, “We are finally having a baby. Finally after years of trying.” Giuliana and Bill explained a gestational carrier will be carrying the baby to term.
The happy news comes after the couple’s heartbreaking journey to conceive. Last October, the E! News host announced she had been diagnosed with early stages of breast cancer while undergoing fertility treatments. After having a lumpectomy followed by a double mastectomy, Giuliana said they were still hoping to start a family of their own.
Giuliana told Ann Curry that finding out she would finally be a mother was the “best moments of my life.” Guiliana said, “We have been trying for so long and have been through so much and especially last year we had such a hard year with the breast cancer and everything. To finally get that call from the doctor…. it was just another world.”
In a preview clip from the couple’s reality show “Giuliana and Bill,” cameras were rolling when the couple finds out they are going to be parents. An overwhelmed Giuliana breaks downs in tears as her doctor tells her and Bill they are expecting a baby. The episode airs Tuesday on Style Network and will be followed by a half-hour special, “Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams.” The couple will host the special which explores the myths and controversy surrounding surrogacy.
The couple is expecting their bundle of joy late this summer, but are keeping the sex of the baby a secret, for now.
