E! personality Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill announced Monday on the Today Show that they’re adding a new member to their family later this summer. The couple opted for a gestational carrier after Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2011. With everything running smoothly now, the pair are head over heels for their surrogate, who’s been dubbed “gestational carrier.”
The connection to the surrogate was instant and Guiliana told People Magazine, “We could tell she was a great person,” and the two are forever in her debt, “She is giving us the greatest gift we’re ever getting in our lives.” Both Giuliana and Bill broke down into tears when their doctor, William Schoolcraft, and “gestational carrier” called them to deliver the good news.
The couple has made the decision to keep the sex of the child a secret until the big day. And once the baby is in their arms, they hope to continue the relationship with the woman who they now consider a part of their family. Bill commented to People on the surrogate staying in the baby’s life, “That will be up to her, but we are very grateful for what she’s done for us and we intend to maintain a relationship with her.”
They made the announcement official on Monday, and Tuesday Giuliana tweeted “New “Giuliana & Bill” tonight on Style 8/7c where we find out we’re having a baby! Retweet to win signed copy of I Do, Now What?#GandB.” This will give fans the opportunity to see the couple receive the emotional news for themselves!
Congrats to the Rancic’s! Are you excited for them??
