Bill and Giuliana Rancic – soon-to-be parents to a baby boy – are planning to spend time in Colorado in August just in case he arrives early. The couple were at the annual Vail Breast Cancer Awareness Group luncheon last week when Bill talked about their move and their surrogate.
People reports he said, “Giuliana was more concerned about the surrogate eating fried chicken. I’m not worried about her eating fried chicken – I’m worried about her smoking crack.”
The E! news anchor added, “For anyone who’s thought about surrogacy, it is scary. It’s like having a babysitter 24 hours a day for nine months.”
Bill says they feel better that the surrogate lives in Denver. He stated, “Clean living here. I felt much better. The water – everything about this state – is great.”
Their surrogate is a French former au pair in her mid 30s and has cared for children since moving to the U.S.
“It’s a tremendous gift,” Bill said. “Certainly we want to show her our gratitude. We plan on maintaining a relationship with her.”
Bill also thinks his unborn son has already impacted many lives.
“That kid is going to be one very special kid, because not only did he save (Giuliana’s) life, but as a result of this whole process – had we never gone through IVF, we would never have found out [about her cancer].”
