Giuliana and Bill Rancic are parents. The couple welcomed their first child, a baby boy, through a surrogate on August 29. Proud papa, Bill, took to his Twitter account to let all of his fans know the happy news. Naturally overjoyed, the reality television stars have been waiting for this day for a long time.
“The ‘Duke’ has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it (sic),” Bill tweeted this morning. It is an extremely happy time for the couple who has struggled with infertility for years.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic have not had the easiest go over the past few years. Aside from failed infertility and miscarriages, Giuliana also had breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. It wasn’t until about a year ago that the two decided that they really wanted a baby and they were forced to look in to other options after G’s cancer.
The E! News correspondent and “The Apprentice” winner decided to have a baby through a surrogate but they were able to use one of G’s eggs and Bill’s sperm. While Giuliana didn’t get to carry her baby to term, Edward is actually their flesh and blood. Technology really is amazing and it has made this couple so very happy and complete.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic may have more children in the future, but for now, they are thrilled with their new arrival.
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives. Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!” Giuliana just told E! News exclusively.
