Giuliana & Bill Rancic Reveal 'High Hopes' About Having Kids
"Ultimately, our doctors say that they can get us pregnant. We're going to one of the most successful IVF doctors in the world, and we believe in him. We'll see what happens," Bill told us, adding that adoption rumors aren't true. "Adoption is still an option down the road, but right now, we're going through IVF, and we believe we're going to have a really good outcome. We have high hopes this time around."
Although B & G are in the middle of their third round of IVF, the couple have another "baby" keeping them busy.
Their new Italian restaurant!
They hope to open the doors in January 2012 and plan to create authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of downtown Chicago. Of course, Giuliana's mom offered to help with the recipes but caught both G & B by surprise when she arrived with two suitcases full of recipes!
"My mom showed up the other day, and I was like, 'Why did you bring all your luggage? You're only here for two days.' Here she had two suitcases full of her recipes!... We're teaming up with Lettuce Entertain You, who will incorporate her authentic Italian recipes into the super chic restaurant," Giuliana said.
"There's something for everyone. Plus, we'll have skinny dishes, which I'll have a say in. Women won't have to feel like they have to stuff themselves at the restaurant -- especially if you want to go out after and not feel like a pig," said G. Bill quickly interjected, "I enjoy over indulging, so there is something for everyone. You'll be able to eat like a pig too."
Just talking about their restaurant made the adorable couple hungry, and they quickly eyed the waitstaff carrying meatballs and had them bring a plate over. "These are delicious!" Giuliana gushed, biting into the hors d'oeuvres.
Adding to their full plate, Giuliana & Bill are taking part in Nivea's New Year’s Eve Kiss of a Lifetime contest. Couples are urged to submit their story of how they triumphed in 2011.
