Kathie Lee & Hoda: Giuliana Rancic Interview
Last year she was diagnosed with breast cancer and what began as one of the worst years of her life turned out to be one of the best. Giuliana Rancic is now the proud mother of Edward Duke Rancic, who was born on August 29 2012, and she joined Kathie Lee and Hoda in the studio to talk about her new son, breast cancer and Do It For The Girls Day.
Giuliana Rancic: Proud Mother
She said her son is probably home right now with Papa Bill and watching right now. Giuliana said he is three weeks old right now, so they can’t travel with him. She said everyone said it would be incredible, but Giuliana said it is beyond words. She said it is a different kind of love and motherhood is the best job in the world and the greatest honor.
Her and Bill Rancic were going through In Vitro Fertilization and found out she had breast cancer, so they had to freeze some eggs and figure out their plan. She had her surgeries and they decided to move ahead with a surrogate because she is on medicine for the next four and a half years. She said she started out by thinking ugh, she is taking a drug every night. Now she is excited and thinking she is taking a drug that could save her life and she thinks that changes things a little bit.
Giuliana Rancic: Breast Cancer
