There’s no doubt Giuliana Rancic has taken a shine to first-time parenthood — but would the super-busy E! News and Fashion Police hostess ever consider slowing down to become a stay-at-home mom? Maybe.
Faced with being away from newborn son Edward Duke for the first time in September, Rancic, 37, contemplated quitting her job to stay at home with her then one-month-old.
“I’m sad. Today I have to leave for Tampa, Fla. to sell my clothing line on HSN, then I go directly to Los Angeles for the Emmys,” Guiliana says in a preview clip from the Dec. 4 episode of STYLE’s Giuliana & Bill. “I knew this day was coming — that it was inevitable, but I have to be honest: I’m not ready.”
Despite her husband Bill‘s reassurance that the couple will both learn to strike the perfect work-family life balance, Giuliana isn’t convinced. “Maybe I should quit right now! I don’t want to go,” she suggests in one emotional scene before breaking down in tears.
Though she had initial misgivings about first-time motherhood, Rancic quickly got the hang of parenting little Duke, as the couple call their son. “It feels good. I’m not nervous at all — I feel like I can take care of him,” the new mom — who welcomed her son via gestational surrogate in August — has said. “I expected to be more flustered but I feel totally at ease. It’s kind of amazing. I just feel like I know what he needs!”
Giuliana & Bill airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. (EST) on STYLE.
