When Giuliana and Bill Racic's baby boy enters the world via gestational surrogate in early September, new mom Giuliana knows just who she'll turn to when she needs advice: Kris Jenner!

"Kris Jenner is like my second mother," Giuliana, 36, raved to Us Weekly at a Wednesday TCA event promoting her new NBC series, Ready for Love. Calling the fellow E! star and Kardashian-Jenner family matriarch "amazing," Giuliana explains that Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian's mama is already doling out her best tips. "Kris gives me the greatest advice. You'll email her one question, one line, and she'll respond in four paragraphs. She's the most thorough, amazing woman."

In addition to prepping Giuliana for motherhood, Jenner, 56, is also encouraging Baby Rancic to be active in his early years.

"She sent the best gifts for the baby: the cutest clothes from Ralph Lauren, [including] Olympic polos from the London Olympics that have the Olympic emblem," Giuliana tells Us. "I thought 'wow, my kid is going to have an Olympic shirt from Bruce Jenner?' That's pretty cool. And she sent Baby's First Golf Clubs! Bill died when he saw that."

Though their son will already have his own clubs at birth, Bill isn't going to force his boy to hit the links.

"I hope I'm half as good a dad as my dad was to me," Giuliana's Ready for Love cohost hubby, 41, explains. "My dad was very patient. He never forced me to do anything -- play sports -- but he encouraged me to do it. And I'm glad that he did because I think that's been a big factor in who I've become, the man that I've become today."
