Giuliana and Bill Rancic announced two months ago that they were expecting a baby via a gestational surrogate, after years of trying to start a family. Giuliana told "E! News," "We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey." And now the sex of the expectant couple's bundle of joy has been revealed: It's a boy!
According to E! Online, the Rancics hosted a baby shower in Los Angeles Sunday afternoon, during which Bill told guests, "We are beyond excited to be having a little boy."
Since marrying in 2007, Giuliana, 37, and Bill, 41, have been candid about their struggle to have children. Giuliana was preparing to begin fertility treatments in 2011 when she learned she had breast cancer.
"At the end of the day, whether you have a baby naturally, through adoption, through surrogacy, it's your baby," Giuliana told the "Today" show a few weeks prior to the baby announcement. "You're going to love that baby and that's all that matters."
The baby's name is yet to be determined, but one thing's for sure: The little boy will be welcomed into a loving home. "We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad!" Giuliana told "E! News." "We just can't wait!"
