Original 'Apprentice' Bill Rancic, wife Giuliana DePandi want kids soon
By Christopher Rocchio, 10/02/2007
Bill Rancic and Giuliana DePandi have been married for only a month, but The Apprentice first-season winner and E! News anchor apparently already have plans to expand their family with a baby.
"It will definitely be sooner rather than later," said DePandi in the October 1 issue of In Touch Weekly.
Rancic and DePandi wed last month at a five-century old church on the Italian island of Capri, and the event was documented by Style Network for Marry Me in Capri -- a Trista & Ryan's Wedding-like special that will chronicle the behind-the-scenes preparations for the ceremony -- which is scheduled to air on October 23.
In addition to her excitement to start a family and despite her on-camera role as an E! News anchor, DePandi has also decided to take her husband's last name.
"I figured, if I did any other job in the world, I would change my name," she explained to In Touch. "So why just because I work in Hollywood should I not change my name?"
Since the couple had no time for a honeymoon -- she covered the 59th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards while he began work as one of the new hosts for In the Loop with iVillage, the new name for NBC's revamped iVillage Live daytime talk show -- they plan on taking a romantic getaway to Bora Bora in the near future, according to In Touch.
