The celebrity stork has been putting in some serious overtime! We just got our first look at Snooki‘s baby Lorenzo (who was born on Sunday, August 26) and today we have some exciting news for one of our favorite celeb couples, Giuliana and Bill Rancic. The reality stars of Giuliana And Bill have confirmed the arrival of their long-anticipated baby boy, Edward Duke Rancic. Celebrate the good news and get deets inside!
E! has the story:
“Bill and I are blessed beyond words to welcome Edward into our lives,” Giuliana tells E! News exclusively. “Thank you so much to everyone who supported us along the way. We are so in love with the little guy already!”
The couple exclusively tells E! News that labor was just over four hours and went smoothly and relatively quickly. Both Bill and Giuliana were in the delivery room for the entire birth of their baby. They couldn’t hold back tears of joy the moment their son was born. The Rancics told us they were beyond elated and couldn’t believe their journey to become parents is finally complete.
Bill cut the umbilical cord minutes after the baby was born, and Giuliana was the first to hold her son for a long while, then gave him to Bill to embrace. The new parents both fed their baby, who they say had a big appetite, and share with us that he is doing incredibly well and has had his first bath.
Bill announced his son’s birth on Twitter saying, “The ‘Duke’ has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words…We did it!”

!!!!So awesome!!!! I think anyone who watches Giuliana on Fashion Police or E! News feels a lil’ something special for this woman. She seems to have this amazingly warm spirit and such strength (many of us remember that Today show interview when she spoke out about having breast cancer); this story is such good news!
Congrats to the new parents! I wish them upwards of four hours of sleep tonight and I cannot wait to ‘meet’ baby Edward!
Okay, no but seriously. I kind of love Giuliana! Who else is a bit *verklempt* right now?
