Earlier this year Bill and Giuliana Rancic opened up about the fact that after a long struggle to conceive they were turning to in vitro fertilization. Though Giuliana got pregnant after the first IVF treatment, the couple reveal the sad news that she miscarried at 9 weeks.
“Both of us were in shock,” the Apprentice winner tells People. “Failure wasn’t an option!”
Giuliana says that the experience has been a very painful one, sharing her own reaction to the miscarriage: “I said, ‘I’m not doing this again. I can’t.’ I was angry at life and at God.”
Why did they decide to go public with something so personal?
“Hopefully we can help people understand that there’s nothing to be ashamed of,” says Giuliana. “It’s such a taboo subject, but it’s a very common problem.”
