Giuliana and Bill’s baby dreams are finally coming true — and they’re revealing all the details in a brand new interview!
Finally some happy baby news for Giuliana Rancic, 36, and husband Bill Rancic! They are expecting their first child, due through a surrogate late this summer, the couple announced on Today on April 23.
Their baby will be born through a gestational surrogate, which means he or she will be Giuliana and Bill’s genetic child. The surrogate is 20 weeks pregnant, so the Rancics will be a family of three around late August.
“Finally!!! RT @BillRancic: The Rancic family is growing….thank you for all the prayers & support!!!” Giuliana tweeted after announcing their happy news on Today.
Because their doctor advised them not to get pregnant for three to five after Giuliana discovered she had breast cancer in September 2011, Bill, 40, says surrogacy was their “last effort.” The couple had frozen only two embryos before they had to stop fertility treatments.
“It was pretty much one of the best moments of my life,” Giuliana said about finding out they’re expecting.”If not THE best moment.”
The couple found their “baby mama,” as Giuliana calls her, through their fertility doctor in Colorado.
“The stars aligned, it was kind of serendipitous,” Bill says in an interview with Eonline. “We found a gestational carrier who was supposed to go work for another family and she became available because the other family ended up getting pregnant naturally.”
“She lives out of state, and we visit her every month,” Giuliana told Ann Curry. “We see the baby growing.”
Aww! So, the the question we all want answered: Will baby Rancic be a boy or a girl?
“We do know [the sex],” but we’re not telling anyone,” Giuliana said. “We’re going to keep it to ourselves for as long as we can.”
We couldn’t be more excited for the Rancics, who have struggled through multiple failed rounds of IVF treatments and a miscarriage. Giuliana discovered she had breast cancer after undergoing a routine mammogram as part of her fertility treatments, and had a double mastectomy in December 2011.
Congratulations, Giuliana and Bill!
