Giuliana and Bill Rancic surprised us all with the announcement that they’re expecting a baby this summer! Now they explain why they decided to have a baby via a gestational surrogate. Bill told Us Weekly:
“The baby is 100 percent genetically ours. It’s our embryo. [When Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer] we had the embryos frozen. Everything happens for a reason, and we believe this is meant to be and the way it was supposed to work out.
“If she’d gotten pregnant, it probably wouldn’t have been a very good outcome because of all the hormones — it would have made the cancer surge. So this was the best option.”
Although Giuliana said she is now cancer-free, doctors told her she would have to wait 3-5 years before it was safe for her to try to conceive again.
“As soon as we heard that we moved forward with this plan,” she tells Us.
Giuliana said they had considered adoption but hadn’t started the process yet. I’m so happy for them, after all they’ve been through!
