A few weeks ago on their reality show Giuliana and Bill, they were discussing the future career options for their child to be, and while “entertainment news reporter” and “CEO of a Fortune 500” company were thrown around, Bill was clearly most enthusiastic about another option.
And it looks like he just might have a chance to father an NFL quarterback -- E! News is officially reporting that the future Rancic is a boy!
The couple's struggles to have children, Giuliana’s health issues and then finally their excitement for their much anticipated heir have been the subject of many shows, specials and interviews with the loving pair, who have unfortunately and painfully struggled for years to grow their family.
The announcement of the baby's sex was the highlight of a shower the couple hosted at their Los Angeles home on Saturday afternoon in honor of the pending arrival.
Bill told E! "We are beyond excited to be having a little boy.”
And Giuliana followed with "We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad! We just can't wait!"
The baby -- who is to be born via gestational surrogate -- will be welcomed into his parents hearts and lives, and in turn all of ours, later this summer.
As was previously announced, they intend to be present as their first, of hopefully many, children is born.
Congratulations to the ecstatic couple! We wish them much happiness in picking out names and more importantly, sports themed decorative memorabilia!
