Great news from the Rancics -- who publicly shared their journey with issues getting pregnant and subsequent discovery that Giuliana had breast cancer -- they're HAVING A BABY!
The couple announced earlier this week that they decided to freeze Giuliana's embryos before starting her cancer treatment, which then allowed them to seek a gestational carrier to help carry their genetic child. The decision to go with surrogacy to have their child came from the understanding that post-cancer treatment, if Mrs. Rancic was to carry a child, she would run the risk of increased cancer growth due to the increase of hormones during pregnancy.
The Rancics' quick thinking when it came to freezing Giuliana's embryos pre-cancer treatment and following up with a gestational carrier is great example for those women and couples experiencing similar issues with fertility, cancer, and trying to figure out the best way to build a family while keeping everyone safe and healthy.

And once again, congrats to Giuliana and Bill!
