Giuliana Rancic and Husband Bill's Surrogate Suffers Miscarriage While Pregnant With Their Second Child
In an interview with Extra's Mario Lopez on Monday, June 2, the E! News host revealed that the couple's surrogate (who previously carried their 2-year-old son, Duke) had suffered a miscarriage while nine weeks pregnant.
"Thankfully we've had some time to process the news," Rancic told Lopez of the incident, which will be discussed on the upcoming season finale of their reality show Giuliana & Bill. "It was hard...I mean, when you get that call that you've had a miscarriage…we were just devastated."
"Our priority at the time, once we were able to take the emotion out of it a little bit," she continued, was "to make sure our surrogate who carried Duke for us … knew it was not her fault."
The breast cancer survivor went on to explain that she understands "it happens all the time." In fact, she's miscarried in the past, too.
"This is something that is so common … it happened to me. We wanted her to feel okay with it. She’s good with it, she's also processed it [and] we're all moving forward.”
The Fashion Police co-host said, too, that when audiences watch the finale of their reality show, where the couple receives the news, it may seem a bit "ambiguous."
“We wanted to hear the news, then get away from the camera to process it ourselves, and that's why it probably comes off a little ambiguous [in the finale] but we wanted to clear it up," Rancic explained.
As for whether the couple, who married in 2007, will try to have a second baby again, Rancic told Lopez she and Bill want another baby more than anything else but are taking their time.
“We had to take a break, it’s just a lot to digest and we're just trying to figure it out now that a little time has passed," she said. "We're trying to figure out when is a good time to start again … We're not gonna pressure [our surrogate] in any way, but she says she's on board.”
"I've been through a lot—breast cancer, infertility, miscarriage—I’ve been through a lot, but somehow, you know the big man always figures it out," Rancic concluded. "We're so happy today and we always get though things. We're gonna keep fighting."
The season finale of Giuliana & Bill airs Tuesday, June 3 on E!
