Yesterday on the Today show, Giuliana and Bill Rancic announced that they are having a baby via a gestational carrier. For the past five seasons on their hit reality show Giuliana & Bill, viewers have followed the couple as they have struggled to conceive, going through three rounds of in vitro fertilization, a miscarriage and then Giuliana’s battle with breast cancer.
On tonight’s episode of the show, premiering at 8pm ET/PT on Style, audiences will get a behind-the-scenes look at their decision to proceed with a gestational carrier, and the moving phone call that informed them that they are, in fact, pregnant.
“Over the years we have opened our lives to Style viewers,” said the couple in a statement. “We are thrilled to be able to share this happy news with our fans and to help inform others who may also be struggling with fertility. This Style special will answer many questions we also had during this process.”
The special referred to in that statement is a 30-minute special about surrogacy called Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams, which airs right after tonight’s episode of Giuliana & Bill, at 9pm ET/PT. Hosted by Giuliana and Bill, the special explores several couples’ surrogacy journeys and uncovers some of the myths and controversy surrounding this growing trend.
