Giuliana Rancic: Duke’s Birth Will Be On Our Reality Show

Giuliana Rancic says the birth of their son Edward Duke will be aired on the new season of their reality show Guiliana & Bill.

The new mom tells The Sun-Times Sunday magazine Splash that they originally did not want cameras in the delivery room filming Duke being born via gestational carrier. Instead they were going to use their own home video camera. However a week before the delivery the couple changed their minds.

Radaronline reports the E! presenter explained, “This is our sixth season and people have followed our story for years. To have people praying for you and supporting you and wanting the best for you and wanting you to have this baby so badly, and then to say, ‘Thanks for all your prayers, thanks for your support, we’re not showing the baby.’ That’s wrong.”

Rancic took a three month maternity leave when Duke was born on August 29. She did return to work on the Primetime Emmy Awards and Fashion Police recently.

At home she says they just love being with the baby.

“We just love to be in bed with him. We watch him breathe, we play with him … we are enamored. And Duke loves when Bill’s holding him giving him a bath. He gives him these great head rubs and Duke closes his eyes every time Bill rubs his head. He just loves him.”

When the premiere kicks off on October 2 on the Style channel – fans will finally meet Delphine – the woman who carried their newborn son.

    • Honey Boo and her family need to be rescued by social services…. sketti and all the rest of that garbage they eat should be cited as abuse….

  1. I have always thought she looks a little like and alien because of her forehead, but now that I see her ears, I am convinced I was right all along!

  2. It’s annoying how they keep making their life so public, but seriously, you shouldn’t blame them. They’re doing it because people actually see it, otherwise there wouldn’t be a show. No show survives on tv without ratings, and they get them. So, people watch their show and that’s why they keep doing it.

  3. That is way too much. It’s not even her who’s giving birth! Parade yourselves around as much as you want, but the surrogate mother? Classy move.

  4. wow, you are all such heartless people.
    don’t you think how much she would have traded places with the surrogate if she could? they have done more than any other reality show to bring to light the struggles of infertility and as much as you may not like it, there are couples out there that want to see the arrival of their baby.
    seriously, if you don’t like it DON’T WATCH IT

  5. Oh please. I’m so sick of them trying to justify their fame-whoring as something they’re doing for the sake of the public.

  6. I feel sorry for the surrogate mother. Talk about invasion of privacy. And that poor kid is going to totally be made fun of for that ugly name “Duke”. Get ready for the Dookie jokes, Mom and Dad.

  7. I love them and am happy for them and cannot wait for the season premier!!!!
    like waiting with a beloved family member as they go through their struggles and experience their joys!!!

  8. For once I’m on the side of the movie star. Why should they make a serious effort to document their son’s birth as it is happening when there is an army of professional videographers available to them? Whether to document the birth under these circumstances would seem to be the issue, not who’s holding the camera.

  9. stop hating on them…. She had breast cancer, miscarriages, and finally after much struggle has finally been able to become a Mommy. I am really happy for them. I think they will be great parents. Bill & Giuliana really seem to love each other and that little boy is blessed to have parents who love him so much.

    • Sure, they’ve struggled. So has half the planet (and for most, in much worse ways).

      And you have no idea if they’ll be great parents. How about if they just go BE parents and stop selling out their kid?

      • you need to grow a heart. she has done great things for women struggling. not only can you overcome cancer but you can have a baby and be happy without physically bearing one.

        grow a heart.

  10. Umm, no she wasn’t willing to do anything to have a baby. Her doctor told her to gain 10 pounds and she said no because she wanted to look good in her work clothes, and then she only gained 5 pounds.

    • “umm” it was unsafe for her to have a kid even up to 5 years after she had her double mastectomy. she took advantage of a gestational carrier and was lucky enough to have that blessing.

    • and who are we to judge her decisions? a baby is a baby. it is a blessing to her and bill. we are women who need to support other women…she helped women all around get a mammogram and realize that no matter where a baby comes from, it should be treated with love. i dont know why we have to judge every little thing about celebrities, but rather we should be happy for her.

      • No, the refusal to gain 10 pounds happened before she had cancer. And yes, I am judging her for refusing to gain 10 pounds to try to get pregnant. And I am not required to support someone simply when they are making stupid choices simply because we are of the same gender.
