Personal life

On December 15, 2006, Bill Rancic and Giuliana announced their engagement. The two were married on September 1, 2007 in a ceremony on Capri at Santa Sophia Church in Anacapri.

The two have publicly discussed their fertility issues on television talk shows, having tried to conceive since approximately the beginning of 2009. The couple began in vitro fertilization (IVF) in March 2010, and Rancic got pregnant in the spring of 2010; however, she suffered a miscarriage at nine weeks. Rancic had an IVF transfer for a second time in November 2010, however the procedure did not result in a pregnancy. When the couple decided to try for a third round of IVF, her doctor recommended a mammogram, which is how she found out she had breast cancer. Despite her condition, the couple were still motivated to have a baby, so they continued with the egg retrieval and found a surrogate.

On April 23, 2012, Giuliana and Bill announced on The Today Show that they were expecting their first child, via gestational carrier due in late summer.

On August 29, 2012, the couple welcomed son Edward Duke Rancic in Denver, Colorado.


On October 17, 2011 during an interview on Today, Rancic announced she had been diagnosed with an early stage breast cancer, for which she would be treated with a lumpectomy, followed by radiation. She underwent surgery in mid-October 2011 and returned to work at E! News about a week later. On December 5, 2011, Rancic disclosed she had decided to undergo a double mastectomy.
