Giuliana and Bill Rancic Baby News
Due later this summer, their biological baby will be born to a surrogate mother. This is great news for the couple, who have wanted to have a child for quite some time, until Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer. She later had a double mastectomy and the baby plans were put on hold.
SurrogacySurrogacy, or using what is called a "gestational carrier" is the choice for couples who have infertility or difficulty conceiving a baby and have not succeeded in fertility treatments. The process involves undergoing assisted reproductive technology, called ART, where the couple's sperm and egg are used to produce an embryo. The embryo is then implanted in the womb of the surrogate, as she provides the uterus to house the baby until it is born. The gestational carrier then hands over the baby to the couple and revokes her parental rights in the process.
Surrogate arrangements are organized much like adoptions, but surrogacy is not legal in all states in the US. Many are arranged by contracts through specialized agencies, and some doctors specialize in gestational carrier arrangements. In many surrogacy situations, the couple is deeply involved in the pregnancy. It should be noted that if the couple cannot produce a viable embryo, there are egg and sperm donors out there for them to consider when having a baby.
Giuliana and Bill
In addition to her gig on E! News, Giuliana Rancic is well known for being a fashion guru, and gained popularity on the show, Fashion Police.
The first season of Giuliana and Bill aired in August of 2009, and since that time, each year their ratings get higher, with women ages 18-49 most interested.
This season we will see Giuliana and Bill open up a restaurant in Chicago. Named, "RPM Italian," the restaurant is 10,000 square feet and features Giuliana's mom's recipes from Italy.
- Giuliana's mom will have quite a presence in season five show segments, as she reportedly stays with the couple. Viewers seem to love her, as according to an interview with Giuliana, she has quite a bit of Twitter followers.
With everything that Giuliana and Bill have endured, we are so very happy for them and are looking forward to meeting the new addition later this summer!
