Giuliana and Bill Rancic Get Emotional at Baby Rancic's First Ultrasound (VIDEO)
Giuliana and Bill Rancic's baby dreams are finally coming true. On the May 1 episode of their reality show, the couple visited their gestational carrier and Dr. William Schoolcraft at the Colorado Center for Reproductive Medicine in Denver to attend their very first ultrasound.
The couple are glued to the monitor as Dr. Schoolcraft explains that what they're seeing is "the flickering of the cardiac activity of the heartbeat starting. That is just about the earliest gestational age where we can ever detect this."
Watch their emotional reaction to seeing baby Rancic's first ultrasound.
The E! host begins to tear up as she reflects on her journey to have a baby. "Looking at these first images, all these emotions from the past start rushing back. All the struggles, the shots, all the doctors visits, the tears -- just everything."
She added, "Seeing that image on the screen is everything we had prayed for and wished for. We just couldn't ask for anything more right now."
Following news that Giuliana, 37, was diagnosed with cancer, it was looking like she may not be able to have a child. But thanks to a gestational carrier, the couple are expecting in late summer.
On April 23, Giuliana and Bill revealed on TODAY that their baby’s carrier lives in Denver and is married with two children. They kept mum about everything else, adding that they wanted to keep some things private. A gestational carrier is different from a surrogate in that the woman is not related to Giuliana and Bill in any way.
