Giuliana Rancic and her husband Bill have shared their entire journey trying to conceive a baby. From their two rounds of unsuccessful IVF, to Giuliana’s cancer diagnosis, to her double mastectomy and reconstruction, to the happy news that they’re expecting via gestational carrier, it’s all been shown on their Style reality show, and used to promote the show in interviews. They even recorded a video message for their futurebaby and shared it with the public – before they even knew they were having a baby. This is how “open” this couple is, although I believe it’s more about marketing their personal lives. That’s ok, that’s their job as reality stars and I do believe they’ve helped a lot of people by sharing their story. So you’ll excuse me if I call bullsh*t on this claim by Giuliana Rancic that she’s not yet sure whether she’s going to put her soon-to-be-born baby on television. Wasn’t that the whole point of all the lead up? Here’s what she told E!
As for her bundle of joy, Rancic won’t reveal the gender but did say that she has started picking out baby names. “It’s not going to be a Hollywood-type, weird name that people can’t pronounce,” she said. “I think it will be traditional but not used frequently.”
Rancic also has to decide whether her baby will be featured on her reality show Giuliana & Bill. “We’ve thought about that,” she said. “It’s definitely come up in conversation, and it’s this sort of thing where I think we just need to have the baby first and then figure out is this going to work or not.”

Maybe I’m being too influenced by E!’s take on Giuliana’s comments, and she’s just saying that it might be a crazy time for them and they’re not sure if they can continue filming right after their baby comes home. I tend to think that they don’t have to think twice about it, and that this is what they’ve been waiting for all along, so of course the child is going to grow up on television. This is what they do, they put their lives on TV and their kid(s) are going to be on TV too. I would like to be wrong, I would like for Giuliana and Bill to put the kibosh on their show and say that they want to focus on their child and on giving him or her a nice, normal life outside of television. Wouldn’t that be something, for a couple to give up fame and cash for the baby they’ve waited and hoped for for years? Yeah, that’s not going to happen.
Here’s Giuliana at an event to raise money for prostate and breast cancer research on 5-9-12. She looks unwell, but that may be because we’re not used to seeing her with her hair pulled back. I am not a fan of her see through dress, but her shoes are kind of cute. I would wear them. Giuliana and Bill are shown at the E! upfronts on 4-30-12. Credit: FameFlynet, Inc.
