Congratulations are in order for Bill and Giuliana Rancic!
The reality TV couple welcomed their first child, son Edward Duke Rancic, on Wednesday, August 29 in Denver, the couple announced via Twitter Thursday morning. “The ‘Duke’ has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz,” Bill writes. “G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!”
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives,” Giuliana tells E! News. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
Labor lasted just over four hours, and Bill, 41, and Giuliana, 37, were in the delivery room when their son was born at 10:12 p.m. The cord was cut by Bill and he was first held by Giuliana.
“He is doing incredibly well,” Giuliana says, adding that baby Edward has already had his first bath and everyone is resting.
It’s been a long road to parenthood for the couple! After years of trying for a baby on their own, one miscarriage and a diagnosis of breast cancer, the reality TV stars have welcomed their first child with the help of a gestational carrier.
