Giuliana and Bill Rancic welcomed their first son, Edward Duke, late Wednesday evening via a surrogate, the couple confirmed on Thursday.

“The ‘Duke’ has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz,” Bill, 41, tweeted Thursday morning. “G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!.”

Edward Duke was born at 10:12PM, in Denver, Colo.

“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives,” Giuliana, 37, told E! News in a statement. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”

According to E! News, the couple was in the delivery room for the birth. Bill cut the umbilical cord, while Giuliana was the first to hold the baby for an extended period of time.

Giuliana — who over the years has battled infertility, miscarriage and breast cancer — married Bill on Sept. 1, 2007. They currently star on the Style Network reality series Giuliana and Bill.
