Dr Oz: Giuliana & Bill
Dr Oz invited TV stars Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic to share the latest chapter of the health challenges they have faced as a couple. Their romance has unfolded on a cable reality series, from infertility and breast cancer to a double mastectomy. The couple has pursued a dream of parenthood, achieved when Duke arrived through the assistance of a surrogate.
Dr Oz: Giuliana Rancic Double Mastectomy
Dr Oz wondered whether the couple wonders if they have shared too much with their fans and viewers. Giuliana said it can be overwhelming, but she feels better afterward when she gets feedback from people who have been inspired in their own struggles and health challenges.
In 2011, Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. Happily, she reported that she is doing well. She has blood work every few months to keep an eye on her health. She admitted that she has Bill answer the phone and get her results, just in case there is ever bad news.
Dr Oz: Giuliana Rancic Fertility
What did it feel like to hear that she had cancer? Giuliana said she thought she knew how she would react, but she had no idea how deeply she would break down. She said she felt like she was falling and that her life was over.
Bill said that the experience strengthened their relationship and caused the small stuff to fall away, giving them a shared perspective on what is truly important. The couple, Dr Oz noted, has also been public about their challenges with fertility.
Giuliana said it seemed to her that more women are facing this challenge in their own lives these days. Her older sister has four kids and has never struggled with fertility. She also comes from a very large family.
Dr Oz: Giuliana Rancic Scoliosis
Dr Oz also wondered about her thin appearance. “Do you think you’re too thin?” he asked. Giuliana said that she does not think so. She said she works out and is not shy about cheating with indulgent foods.
“This is my build,” she said, adding that it has run in her family. She said she always hears from people that she looks too thin. Giuliana said that she is sensitive about her arms and back, which are exposed when she works the red carpet during awards season.
She admitted that she had Scoliosis as a child, which causes some of her bones to seem to protrude. However, since she knows the truth, she tries not to take it personally. She once had a 45 degree curve in her spine, so she has come a long way.
Dr Oz: Bill Rancic Parenthood
The couple is now embracing parenthood. Bill said he never really knew how much it would change his life. He and Giuliana are the proud parents of Duke, who apparently loves wrestling.
Previously, the couple approached their surrogate during the season finale of their reality show. You will have to watch the April 1 season premiere of Giuliana & Bill on E! to find out what news they will get from their surrogate.
