Giuliana and Bill Rancic have revealed they are thinking about having another baby.
“We’d only be so lucky,” Giuliana Rancic told the Chicago Sun-Times Sunday magazine SPLASH when they asked her if she wanted to add another little one to her clan.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic’s son Edward Duke was born via gestational surrogate
Giuliana and Bill Rancic’s son Edward Duke was born via gestational surrogate seven months after Giuliana struggled with infertility and then discovered she had breast cancer which was stopped in its tracked by her undergoing a double mastectomy.
The next series of Giuliana & Bill will premiere in June, can expect to see “a ton of baby Duke,” she revealed.
Giuliana Rancic is relishing every precious moment of motherhood taking regularly to Twitter to share pictures of Edward Duke.
Giuliana Rancic took to Twitter to share a picture of two-month-old Edward Duke happily poised on top of husband Bill’s stomach wearing a cute grey and white striped hooded one-piece.

Giuliana Rancic lovingly wrote: “I could stare at this face ALL day:)”
The reality TV star has endured so much in recent years including the strain of infertility and a devastating bout with breast cancer so now it’s wonderful to see her find the happiness she deserves.
Giuliana Rancic clearly appreciates every day since welcoming her son with Bill Rancic on August 29.
The picture also showed off what must be another joy in Giuliana Rancic’s life – Bill’s six-pack abdomen.
The couple, who have been married for five years and star in their own reality show, Giuliana and Bill, always knew they wanted to have a family, but their dreams of getting pregnant were complicated by fertility issues.

Giuliana Rancic tried in vitro fertilization, but two procedures failed to produce a pregnancy and the one that did ended in miscarriage.
After a routine mammogram in 2011, she found out she had breast cancer, but fortunately was able to beat it.
The couple never gave up their dream of becoming parents and early this year saw light at the end of the tunnel when they announced they were expecting a child via gestational carrier.
The Italian-born TV personality recently shared a video of her bottle-feeding the baby for the first time at the Denver, Colorado hospital right after he was born.
“I expected to be more nervous and more flustered, like I had no idea what to do,” Giuliana Rancic says in the video.
“But I feel totally at ease. I just feel like I know what he needs.”
“We just stare at him all the time,” Giuliana Rancic revealed on the Todayshow not long after Edward was born.
“He’s got big eyes and he’ll just stare at you for 10 minutes at a time. It’s just unbelievable…When the baby came into the world, we just started hysterically crying tears of joy.”
Giuliana and Bill Rancic are already planning to expand their family with baby No. 2 in the near future, and are even thinking of using the same gestational carrier as before.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic seem intent on spreading their good cheer around, as they tour the chat shows in an attempt to publicize their reality series.
The new parents visited the Today Show and Katie on Tuesday as they prepared for a special episode of their show covering the birth of their son Duke.
Giuliana Rancic, 37, showed off her trim figure in a flattering black and white panel dress as she walked in New York.
She and smartly dressed Bill Rancic each had wide smiles on their face, as they posed together for the cameras.
Their reality show has chronicled the couple’s rocky journey to becoming parents, from their battles with infertility, through Giuliana Rancic’s cancer and their eventual decision to ask a surrogate to carry their child.

Tuesday night’s episode shows the moment the couple finally meet their son Edward Duke, as their surrogate gives birth.
Giuliana Rancic has just returned to TV as a host on E! News following her three-month maternity leave.
She has admitted she cried when she had to leave her baby for the first time to return to work.
“It was hard to leave the little guy I’m not going to kid you,” she told E!
“But… I’m fine. I’m going to do what most moms do. It is hard but hopefully I’m going to bring him in a couple of days of the week. He’s so new. He’s only 11 weeks old.”
Giuliana Rancic has opened up about her blissful life with her baby boy Edward Duke.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, Edward Duke Rancic, into the world via gestational surrogate on August 29 in Denver, Colorado.
The 37-year-old discussed the joys of motherhood on the Today show this morning and also shared a snap of the three-week-old child.
“I look at that picture ten times a day and I still coo!” she gushed as the sweet photograph flashed up screen.
“He’s just adorable. He’s so cute!”
“We just stare at him all the time,” she continued.
“He’s got big eyes and he’ll just stare at you for ten minutes at a time. It’s just unbelievable.”

Giuliana Rancic said that rather than dreading night time feeds, she and Bill fight over who will wake up to give him his bottle.
“I love spending every second I can with him,” she said.
She also spoke about her surrogate, Delphine, whom she describes as a “wonderful person”.
“She gave us the greatest gift in the world,” she said, adding that the couple were present in the delivery room when their child was born.
“When the baby came into the world, we just started hysterically crying tears of joy,” she explained.
Giuliana Rancic admitted she was again in tears last night when she left her son with her husband in Chicago for the first time to fly to New York.
But it was for a good cause – she was on the show to promote Do It For The Girls Day, which encourages women to give themselves a breast examinations.
During Giuliana Rancic’s third attempt to get pregnant through IVF her doctor discovered she had breast cancer. But she is now cancer-free following a double mastectomy and is keen to encourage early detection in others.
She said the past 12 months have been full of mixed emotions: “It was the best year of my life, because of the baby and the worst year of my life because of my cancer.”
“It just goes to show that if you’re strong and positive, great things can come out of the darkest time of your life.”
Giuliana and Bill Rancic – who tied the knot in September 2007 – struggled to conceive for four years before deciding to turn to a surrogate.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic are revealing the identity of the surrogate mother who helped them bring their son into the world.
A clip from the couple’s reality show Giuliana & Bill shows the mom and dad-to-be being coached in the delivery room with their surrogate, Delphine.
Delphine, who carried the Rancic’s son Edward Duke to term, is seen with the couple and a hospital worker who talks them through the process of what will happen the day of delivery.
While Giuliana and Bill Rancic bicker over who will first get to hold the child, and who will cut the umbilical cord, Delphine seemed at ease and open to letting the pair be as much a part of the process as possible.

Delphine eventually gave birth at a Denver, Colorado hospital on August 29 with the Rancics by her side.
Edward Duke Rancic was born at 10:12 p.m. and the baby’s umbilical called was cut by Giuliana and Bill moments before they held him ahead of anyone else.
The couple named the tot after Bill Rancic’s father, who was called Edward, and Giuliana’s dad, Eduardo.
The American entrepreneur and reality star tweeted the news of the then-anonymous surrogate going into labor.
“It’s game time,” Bill Rancic posted on his Twitter account.
After little Edward was born, the couple said they felt “blessed beyond words” to have become parents for the first time.
Giuliana Rancic, 37, took to Twitter, writing: “It’s true what they say (and what u all told us)…. @BillRancic and I couldn’t love little Duke anymore than we do. He’s a dream….”
Bill Rancic, 41, tweeted: “The <<Duke>> has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7 lbs 4 oz. G& I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!(sic).”
The happy arrival came after Bill Rancic and his E! News host wife struggled to conceive naturally, undergoing three failed cycles of IVF.
Then last year during her treatment Giuliana Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer, putting their dreams of a family on hold.
She underwent a lumpectomy followed by radiation before undergoing a double mastectomy.
Following her recovery the couple decided to use a surrogate to try for a baby, and they were thrilled when their attempt ended in a pregnancy.
Bill Rancic earlier this year opened up about the journey, telling the TODAY show how he and his wife “hit the gestational carrier lottery”.
Presenter Giuliana Rancic, meanwhile told E! News: “Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives.
“Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
Giuliana & Bill is scheduled to premiere on the STYLE network on October 2 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
Giuliana and Bill Rancic used a creative way to let their friends know they were expecting a son at their guessing-themed Beverly Hills bash over the weekend.
The couple released blue balloons out of a giant box during the fun-filled event.
Looking like a ray of sunshine in a bright yellow dress, Giuliana Rancic jumped for joy as they made the big reveal.
“It was great to finally share it with everyone,” she told Life & Style whilst trying to hold back tears.
“I’ve always wanted a little Bill – my husband is the most gorgeous guy in the world and I want our baby to look exactly like him.”
During the party – which was organized by celebrity-planner-to-the-stars Mindy Weiss – guests feasted on ribs and sliders and sipped on Nicolas Feuillatte champagne and OneHope wine.

Continuing on with the guessing theme of the party, the pair even cut into a pink and blue cake, revealing a turquoise sponge inside.
“The shower is exactly what I envisioned,” said Giuliana Rancic.
The TV host said she was relieved to be finally focusing on her baby, and that she was already feeling a strong connection to her unborn son.
“Now that the medical stuff is done, we can focus on the baby,” she said.
“Even though I’m not pregnant I’ve been dreaming about the baby. I had heard that I’d feel a connection, but I didn’t really believe it. I dream of the baby in a blue blanket and it’s the cutest little boy.”
After the party this past weekend, the excited duo also shared the news with fans, revealing they are soon to welcome a little boy – thanks to the help of their surrogate mother.
Giuliana Rancic tweeted: “Beyond excited to announce @BillRancic and I are having a……….BOY!!!!!”
The couple, who are expecting their new arrival later this summer, plan on being in the delivery room with their surrogate.
It has been a happy time for the couple, who have had their fair share of heartache.
Giuliana Rancic underwent a double mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer last year.
The stunning TV star recently spoke about the prospect of having either sex of baby.
Giuliana Rancic recently told People: “The reason being that when you have a mother-[son] bond, he’s like your prince – you don’t want to discipline him.
“And then there’s daddy’s little girl, he’ll never want to discipline her. But to be honest, chances are I will discipline, because I’m a crazy Italian chick.”
E! News recently published one of the couples’ adorable baby shower invitations featuring a guessing theme by headlining the invitation with a question: “Blue or Pink: What Do You Think?”
Underneath the playful question was a pink “g” for Giuliana Rancic in pink script and a “b” in blue for Bill. The front cover of the invitation gave the date of the party as June 17th, but the location wasn’t divulged.
The Rancic duo already knew the gender prior to their party.
“Here’s the thing,” Giuliana Rancic told E! News earlier this month.
“I don’t know how long we’re going to be able to keep it a secret, but it’s like the only thing in our lives right now that’s a secret… It’s fun having something between the two of us.”
Giuliana and Bill Rancic plan on trying for a second child once she’s clear of the cancer treatments in five years.
“Five years puts me at 42, and a lot of people have kids at 42. So I’m definitely going to try again,” she said.
