Giuliana and Bill Rancic’s Baby Arrives!

Giuliana Bill Rancic

The big day has arrived for Giuliana and Bill Rancic. Early this morning, the couple welcomed their son Edward Duke into the world. Both Giuliana and Bill were in the delivery room with the gestational carrier for the birth, which was just under 4 hours.

Last night, Bill ambiguously tweeted “It’s Game Time…,” causing followers and fans to wonder if the baby had arrived. Today he confirmed the news.

“The “Duke” has landed,” Bill tweeted. “Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!”

The couple has been open about their struggle to conceive. On Giuliana & Bill, viewers watched as the couple went through unsuccessful IVF treatments and a tragic miscarriage. In March, however, things took a turn when the two announced that they were having a child via gestational carrier. Through this process, the child is biologically Giuliana’s and Bill’s.

Here’s to the happy couple and their baby boy.

What do you think of the name choice? Would you opt for a gestational carrier?
