Giuliana and Bill Rancic Speak on Surrogate

by at . Comments

Giuliana and Bill Rancic, who have opened up about their struggle to have a child in the last few years, announced Monday that they're finally expecting a baby.

They've bonded with the woman who is making it happen, too.

"She is giving us the greatest gift we're ever getting in our lives," Giuliana, 37, says of the couple's surrogate, whose identity has not been revealed.

"She's selflessly helping make our dream a reality. We adore her."

The gestational surrogate is carrying their child, but it will be their biological offspring. Giuliana's struggles to achieve a viable pregnancy are well documented.

Asked if they plan to stay in touch with the woman once their child is born, Bill says, "That will be up to her, but we are very grateful for what she's done."

"We intend to maintain a relationship with her."

The couple admit they were quite nervous about picking a surrogate before they met the woman they chose, but they clicked with her immediately.

"Once we met her it was an instinct," says Giuliana. "We could tell she was a great person." Bill adds that the Rancics attend her doctor's appointments:

"It's important to us to see the development and growth. At the end of the day, it's our baby. Genetically it's ours. It's our embryo. We feel very connected."

For now the parents-to-be are relishing keeping the baby's gender a secret – but they know, and may not be able to keep it for the duration of the pregnancy.

"When you do a reality show and host shows, it's hard to have secrets. Its nice to have something that only the two of us know for now," says Giuliana.

However, "Eventually we may tell people."

How many pain and hardship has Giuliana experience trying to have a baby? We found Dr. Anoop Gupta, one of the most humble and caring doctor, who answers our all queries and make our dream come true..God bless him and very thankful to him...

I like how people believe they have the right to decide who should or should not have a baby based on their ability to fall pregnant and carry to term. Unbella, comparing having a child in your life to getting a dog shows your lack of intelligence. How about you make your judgements based on peoples ability to parent and not their ability to become one. Lisi, if your not interested why did you visit the page, read the article, then take the time to comment? Clearly your mire interested then you let on, even if it's just to hate on someone you don't know.

Why are we supposed to care about these two? I wish they would stop publicizing their every move.

I am ecstatic for them. Yes, it's sad that Giuliana will not get to experience being pregnant, but surrogate or not, this is THEIR baby, who shares THEIR dna. I coudn't be happier for this very deserving couple. :)

The criticism's should stop! However your child became your family,
all the pain softens, & your love grows deeper every day, even every minute! BTW, two of my children were adopted, but when asked by curious, host strangers, we simply Reply, admit two are adopted, but we have forgotten which ones!!! I hope this baby is born hesltgy

I had fertility issues and tried every treatment imaginable. I was able to carry the first two children, but I had so many physical issues.
I could get pregnant, but not stay pregnant.
Those losses were quite difficult, and I still honor those children on their 'Birth Dates ' in my own special way, not sharing what hspp.
If this couple have experienced similar situations, then their choices should be respected, even if you have a different point of view.
Be joyful for them, celebrate with them. When they first have that child put into their arms, the years of pain, procedures, & criticism from people.
Judgement from strangers (Such as 'Unbella

Unbella- I am sick over what I just read. Its not like me to get on the computer and even reply to anything, but I can't help it. I am a mother of 4 boys and have never had any trouble becoming pregnant. Although I have had my share of losses (3 miscarriages), I can't help but think you are very ignorant & niave in your statements. I would love to see what you would do if you were ever to be in a situation like Guilianna & Bill. Of course having your baby would be ideal, but that is not in the cards for everyone. Curious..how old are you unbella? ..sorry don't mean to be rude but I am shocked at your insensitivity. Do you even realize how insensitive your comments were to anyone struggling with fertility? I even know that, and I am fertile!!! Anyways, Congrats to Guiliana & Bill...so excited to hear the news!!!
