After a long awaited pregnancy via gestational surrogate, the Rancic’s are finally parents!
E! News reveals Edward Duke Rancic was born last night at 10:12PM in Denver Colorado.
Giuliana released the following statement:
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
Bill tweeted, “G and I feel blessed beyond words. We did it!”
Both parents were in the delivery room for the labor (lasting just over four hours) and delivery. Giuliana was the first person to hold Edward after Bill cut the umbilical cord. The new parents have already fed their son and given him a bath.
The E! News anchor and her businessman husband will be bringing their son to their Chicago home first, where they plan to stay through October. To avoid flying, they’ll then take a road trip to Los Angeles where Giuliana’s job is located and they have another home.
Congrats goes out to the well-deserving new parents, after their heart-breaking journey through infertility and breast cancer.
