It has been a hard year of darkness for TV host Giuliana Rancic, having had long struggles with pregnancy mishaps (multiple failed rounds of IVF treatments and a miscarriage) on top of the diagnosis of breast cancer and undergoing a double mastectomy in 2011.
So it’s about time her life took a happy turn.
Just today, Giuliana and Bill Rancic confirmed that they are expecting a baby sometime this year, in the summer. The couple was set up with a surrogate through their doctor in Colorado after the last IVF. The surrogate mother lives out of state, but they plan to be there for all her doctor visits.
Both Giuliana and Bill appeared on The View to talk about what it was like to finally hear the good news:

“Oh my god, it’s just shocking. It was very emotional. Had I not gone through IVF, had I not had this struggle, I never would have discovered I had reast cancer. Had I gotten pregnant naturally and easily, it would have actually accelerated the cancer”, 36-year-old Giuliana said.
She went on to add, “Especially with the news today, now more than ever I’m happy I went public because it shows there is a light at the end of the tunnel. If you hang in there and stay positive, God will give you good things.”
Hang in there, Giuliana and Bill. We know you’re both going to become great parents.
