Giuliana and Bill reveal to HollywoodLife.com exclusively how Giuliana’s recovery from her double mastectomy is going — and their plans for starting a family.
Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill Rancic remain positive that they will have kids one day. Right now, Giuliana is fighting to recover from the double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery that she got on Dec. 13, but as soon as her doctors give her the go ahead, she and Bill will start trying to get pregnant.
“There is really no plan yet,” Giuliana told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the Nivea Kiss New Year’s event at the Chatwall Hotel in NYC on Dec. 30. “The main thing is recover and the doctors see how long it takes you. The last thing you want to do is get pregnant right now. You’re really in no shape to do that.”
Giuliana and Bill are waiting until the time is right. “As soon as I feel back to my old self again and once we get over this,” Giuliana explained. “We’re not done trying and we want kids. We’re not getting younger. As soon as we’ve recovered from this and I feel healthy enough to move on and our doctor says it’s OK to get pregnant, we certainly will.”
“One marathon at a time,” Bill added.
Right now, Giuliana is focusing on her recovery. “Day by day I get stronger,” she shared. “Now I can open the car by myself. [But] you really take for granted the little things in your life like brushing your teeth or putting a dress on. I could never have gotten through this without Bill.”
And Giuliana’s positive attitude is helping her fight the battle. “Attitude is what got me to heal so quickly, having that goal,” she admitted. “At a time when it could have been very easy to sit in bed and feel bad for myself, instead of focusing on the bad, I did this every day: I thought about what I am lucky for in my life. I looked at all the positive.”
The whole ordeal brought Giuliana and Bill closer. “For the first time in our marriage, we started praying together,” Bill said. “We’ve never really done that. I don’t care what religion you are. With faith it doesn’t matter, you find your god in a situation with this.”
