E! host Giuliana Rancic and her former Apprentice winner husband, Bill Rancic, have had an emotional year. Having been open about their fertility and health issues on their reality TV show, Giuliana & Bill, the pair have decided to let the public in on their private struggles.
Earlier this year, the double mastectomy survivor chatted with Celebrity Baby Scoop and shared, “We have not given up our desire to have children. For now we are really just looking forward to the rest of 2012!” Almost a month later, have things changed?
The 37-year old and her hubby revealed to Glamour magazine some of the intimate details of their journey towards health and a growing family.
As Giuliana’s recovery began, some challenges kept appearing. The ability to even walk around the hospital floor was daunting. “As a husband and as a man, you wish you could trade places with your wife, but you can’t, and it sucks,” Bill shared. “I of course had my moments. But you know, you’ve got to be strong; I would never break down in front of her.”
Giuliana added, “He always kept a very strong front. There were a couple of people who said to me during the process, “It’s hard for the husband too. Just make sure you check in with him every once in a while.” I would ask Bill, “Are you OK?” and he would say, “Honey, don’t ever ask me that question. Don’t ever even worry an ounce about it.”
Having that support system there day in and day out has helped speed up the recovery process.
When asked was coming up for the couple, the celebrity news personality was quick to respond.
“We actually just met with our fertility doctor, and we’re looking at all of our options for having kids. We’re waiting to get the green light that I can get pregnant, but if for some reason I can’t carry children myself, then we’re open to surrogacy; we’re open to adoption.”
Bill added, “We’re going to do fun things this year. I told Giuliana, “We’re going to make sure every vacation day you have at E! is used.”
“We’ll get a couple of margaritas in us and go crazy,” she said with excitement. “People say that’s how it happens—vacation and booze. Mix the two and you have a baby! I think in five years we’ll have two boys and two girls.”
