Giuliana and Bill Rancic have shared plenty of heartbreak with their fans over the years. Now they are doing the same with their long-awaited joy.
In tonight's episode of Giuliana & Bill, the couple visit their gestational surrogate and attend the very first ultrasound for their soon-to-be-born child.
"It's a little bit nerve-wracking because with IVF and with this type of a procedure, there's always a chance that there was a false positive," Bill said.
"We needed to see it to believe it."
With their eyes glued to the monitor, the doctor explains that what they're seeing is "the flickering of the cardiac activity of the heartbeat starting."
"That is just about the earliest gestational age where we can ever detect this."
Giuliana, 37, and her husband, 40, begin to tear up when they think about the long journey that preceded this happy moment they waited so long for.
Said an obviously choked-up Giuliana:
"Seeing that image on the screen is everything we had prayed for and wished for. We just couldn't ask for anything more right now."
"Looking at these first images, all these emotions from the past start rushing back. All the struggles, the shots, all the doctors visits, the tears ... just everything."
