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!

I am so happy for them. Everytime deserves to have a child and when u physically cant its sad. It doesnt matter how the child is bought into the world. As long the parents love the child thats all that matters. Suck on the umbella. Dumb ass.

having a child unnaturally is just wrong. Doctors are like aliens these days... Trying to reverse roles with God. People just think they are owed some dream life and cant accept the way things ARE. I understand adoption but artificial pregnancies are sick.

I'm happy for them. They've been through some hard times and this is good news. They seem like a warm and loving couple -- just wish they will leave the "reality life" once the baby arrives. Privacy is a wonderful thing!
