It’s been a long road to parenthood for Bill and Guiliana Rancic: they tried multiple rounds of IVF, experienced a miscarriage and Giuliana underwent a double mastectomy to address her breast cancer diagnosis last year. But on Monday, they announced their dreams were coming true—they are expecting a child this summer through gestational surrogacy (the child is biologically their own, but is being carried by a surrogate).
A special called Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams is airing tonight at 9 p.m. EST on The Style Network in the U.S., and it will highlight their journey to parenthood. No word on when and if it will air in Canada, nor on which station. However, we’ve got a very lovely and emotional clip of the two of them receiving the good news that their surrogate’s pregnancy is successful.
Bill and Giuliana join the ranks of other celeb parents who have used surrogates to build their families, including Neil Patrick Harris and his partner David Burtka; Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick; Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban; Ricky Martin; and Angela Bassett.
