The successful reality couple, who welcomed their first baby via surrogate in August, revealed in a new interview that they prioritize their marriage over their baby Duke, 6 months! Do YOU think that’s a healthy family structure?

Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic have been happily married since they tied the knot in Italy in 2007, but just became first-time parents in August when they welcomed their baby boy Edward Duke via gestational surrogate. As part of their new family plan, the power couple has decided to put their marriage first, and their baby second.

“We’re husband and wife, but we’re also best friends, and it’s funny because a lot of people, when they have kids, they put the baby first, and the marriage second,” the E! News host told Us Weekly. “That works for some people. For us, I find, we put our marriage first and our child second, because the best thing we can do for him is have a strong marriage.”

Giuliana: Being A Mom Makes My Marriage Stronger

Giuliana, who met her hubby Bill when she interviewed him after he won the first season of The Apprentice, has always wanted to be a mom, and battled fertility struggles — and breast cancer — before her dream came true last summer.

But now that she’s a mom, she revealed how much it has impacted her relationship with her man — for the better.

“We’re even stronger than we ever were before and even imagined we could be,” she said.”I always say to Bill, ‘You were my first baby,’ because he was! He was my first love and my first baby and Duke is my second baby.”

So sweet! It sounds like the Rancics are one big happy family.
