Just about 2 weeks ago we learned the happy news that Giuliana and Bill Rancic welcomed the birth of their first born son Edward Duke. Today, the happy couple proudly shows off their newborn son on the cover of Life & Style magazine! As you can see below, the little dude — affectionately called Duke — is super, duper cute!! This new issue of Life & Style will feature a bunch of photos of the newly expanded Rancic family but you can get a preview below.
Bill and Giuliana Rancic show off their handsome baby boy Edward Duke for the first time ONLY in Life & Style, on newsstands now! “I had always heard that when you have a baby it completes your life — and it’s true,” Giuliana tells Life & Style. “I love my baby, and I love my new role.” The ecstatic new parents posed with their son — they call him Duke — during the exclusive photo shoot at the Presidential Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago on Sept. 9. “Every day he’s changing — it’s just remarkable to see,” Bill, 41, tells Life & Style. “[He’s] got Giuliana’s dimples!” Explaining how they came up with the name, Giuliana shares, “Edward is Bill’s late dad’s name and my dad’s name. It was a way to honor them. And Duke means leader.” The E! News host is a natural at motherhood. “It’s amazing how maternal instincts have taken over, and Giuliana’s just supermom,” raves Bill. “It literally brought tears to my eyes the other day watching her with Duke.” Bill teases his wife about how much she enjoys changing diapers. “I’d never changed more than a diaper or two in my life,” she laughs. “Now it’s like the littlest things that make me happy — happier than I’ve ever been” … “I couldn’t believe that all those years of struggling and the tears actually paid off,” Giuliana admits. “Every shot, every doctor’s visit — in the end, when you’re holding your baby in your arms, you forget it all, and it’s worth it.”
Giuliana and Bill’s story is such a poignant and inspiring one. For the last couple of years, Giuliana has been so open about her health struggles and it’s no exaggeration to say that we struggled alongside with her. It’s just really heartening to see that the couple’s desire to have a baby came to fruition and had a happy ending. Little Duke will be loved and cared for by parents who did everything they could possibly do to bring him into the world … which makes him the luckiest kid in the world. I am just so happy for this family … I wish them nothing but a lifetime of happiness and love.
