Giuliana and Bill Rancic: Expecting!

by at . Comments

After a long, emotional and often arduous process, Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill are finally expecting their first child! The little one is due in late summer via a gestational surrogate, which means the baby will be their genetic child.

"We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered," the celebrity news anchor and Fashion Police member told E! this morning. Adds Bill, "We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey."

Giuliana and Bill, whose struggles to conceive a baby have been well documented, and includes failed IVF treatments and a miscarriage, appeared on Monday's Today show to elaborate on the details behind the pregnancy.

Says Giuliana:

"We received an incredible amount of love and prayers from viewers around the world and we want to take this opportunity to thank every one of them."

"It was one of the best moments of my life, if not the best moment of my life. It's incredible. We've been trying for so long, we've been through so much. And to finally get that call from the doctor, it was just another world, another level."

"It was pretty emotional because this was our last stop," Bill added.

The announcement also follows several trying months that included Giuliana being diagnosed with breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy.

Three weeks ago, the couple appeared on Today and Giuliana gave an optimistic prognosis. "I'm good," she said, adding she didn't need chemotherapy.

"You do what the doctors tell you to do and it's going to be OK."

Bill also announced, even before the pregnancy, that the two planned to renew their vows this summer, "and take life on and look at it in a new light."

"One of the things we've always tried to do is help others with our story," the original Apprentice winner said. "Whether it's with infertility issues, whether it's with breast cancer, we said we're gonna turn these negatives into positives."

"And if we can help others by sharing our story, then it's worth it."

Keep it up, you two. And congratulations!

What the hell is wrong with you people? How dare you come down on them for their choice to use a surrogate? And who are you to judge? So much talk of God on here but remember this- only God can judge! Get a life and just be happy for them that not only is she in remission but that she can finally have a family. And fyi, a baby is a blessing either way. No matter where it comes from or how it was conceived.

The Lord works in many ways and one of those is by giving doctors the knowlege to help couples who cannot have children the normal way, have his blessed miracle in another. Shame on all of you so called christians who say that g and b shouldnt have any children at all. Basha you are so mean and I hope you never have to need any kind of help that has been developed in the last 2000 years. I have faith that The Lord blessed this womderful couple with this child. My only wish is that this procedure had been around when my broken hearted aunt who lost 13 babies because she couldnt carry a baby full term. Im so happy for both of you.

This is no different than Sarah begging Abraham to sleep with another woman so that she could have "her" baby and Abraham obliging. If Sarah would have just waited she would have conceived her own child by Abraham. You heard the doctor in Denver. While a couple was waiting for a carrier of their child, they got pregnant. Do you realize how intimate it is AND BONDING to carry your own child? G didn't want to wait for that? Possibly God wanted to show a miracle through her. What their story has shown me is that they lack faith in God in this instant gratification world. I admire her courage and steadfastness in pushing through all of this but it is truly a story of how selfish Hollywood continues to be in pursuing THEIR wants and THEIR needs. Her story only reaches the rich. Because the middle class and poor simply could not afford "her" journey. Enough said. I'm not happy for these two. I'm actually very sad.

Awwww, I am thrilled for Giuliana and Bill! I have NO doubt that they will both be wonderful, loving parents - what a lucky little baby to have them as parents! I wish them the best. They have been through so many hard times, that it's about time something good and positive happens in their life. They deserve it!

I am thrilled for them and can only imagine how happy they must be! Don't pay any attention to that negative Unbella - she doesn't understand that any way that a baby is brought into this world is a blessing and gift from God. If doctors weren't meant to aid infertile couples, then these procedures wouldn't be possible.
