Giuliana Rancic shares pictures of baby Edward Duke
Giuliana Rancic has opened up about her blissful life with her baby boy Edward Duke.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, Edward Duke Rancic, into the world via gestational surrogate on August 29 in Denver, Colorado.
The 37-year-old discussed the joys of motherhood on the Today show this morning and also shared a snap of the three-week-old child.
“I look at that picture ten times a day and I still coo!” she gushed as the sweet photograph flashed up screen.
“He’s just adorable. He’s so cute!”
“We just stare at him all the time,” she continued.
“He’s got big eyes and he’ll just stare at you for ten minutes at a time. It’s just unbelievable.”
Giuliana Rancic said that rather than dreading night time feeds, she and Bill fight over who will wake up to give him his bottle.
“I love spending every second I can with him,” she said.
She also spoke about her surrogate, Delphine, whom she describes as a “wonderful person”.
“She gave us the greatest gift in the world,” she said, adding that the couple were present in the delivery room when their child was born.
“When the baby came into the world, we just started hysterically crying tears of joy,” she explained.
Giuliana Rancic admitted she was again in tears last night when she left her son with her husband in Chicago for the first time to fly to New York.
But it was for a good cause – she was on the show to promote Do It For The Girls Day, which encourages women to give themselves a breast examinations.
During Giuliana Rancic’s third attempt to get pregnant through IVF her doctor discovered she had breast cancer. But she is now cancer-free following a double mastectomy and is keen to encourage early detection in others.
She said the past 12 months have been full of mixed emotions: “It was the best year of my life, because of the baby and the worst year of my life because of my cancer.”
“It just goes to show that if you’re strong and positive, great things can come out of the darkest time of your life.”
Giuliana and Bill Rancic – who tied the knot in September 2007 – struggled to conceive for four years before deciding to turn to a surrogate.
