I might be happier than they are. Talk about a journey! Bill and Giuliana Rancic made another appearance on the TODAY show to announce that they are finally having a baby! PHEW!! Finally some good news for America’s favorite TV Sweetheart couple.
After the breast cancer announcement last year and her decision to have a double, ’m not sure I could take any more bad news. During her the darkest times of the past 6 months Giuliana has always said that she would be determined to still have the baby they always wanted. After all, the baby saved their lives. Without trying IVF she would have never been diagnosed so early with the breast cancer.
On the today show Giuliana couldn’t contain her joy, stating,
“Finally, we are having a baby, We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered”.
“We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey.”
They are using a gestational surrogate mother to have the baby. “WTF is that?”, you ask? Good question. I asked the same thing, and it’s kind of important to the story.
How a gestational surrogate works is, Bill and Giuliana choose a healthy mom that has been prescreened for diseases. Then Giulianna goes through the IVF process, the eggs are removed, fertilized with Bills swimmers and then the embryos get put into the surrogate mom. She delivers the baby. So genetically Bill and Giuliana will still be the biological parents. The cost of this could be anywhere from $25,000 to $40,0000. (Who said money couldn’t buy happiness).
The chosen surrogate mom is already a mother of two who Bill ad Giuliana visit with frequently. They also already know the baby’s sex but have decided to keep that a secret for now.
Here is the clip of their announcement.
