News that Bill and Giuliana Rancic suffered a miscarriage earlier this year has come as a shock to many viewers. There has been speculation all year that the couple may be expecting, but it was neither confirmed nor denied. With their appearance on The View in the spring, the TV personalities stated that they would be attempting In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) to try and conceive a baby.
I, for one, have been waiting to see if the IVF was successful. Giuliana has seemingly not gained any weight in the last few months, and that was a sore subject for Whoopi Goldberg when the couple appeared on The View. She gave Giuliana a hard time for not doing what it takes – gaining the recommended weight – to become pregnant. Bill reassured Whoopi that he was working with Giuliana on making that happen.
The couple, who star in the reality series Giuliana & Bill on the Style Network, has been forthcoming with viewers regarding their fertility struggles. It is not surprising that news of their pregnancy did not hit the air, as they were presumably waiting to get past the first trimester before making an announcement. However, Giuliana takes to her twitter account on a regular basis, and there was no indication that she was going through the emotional trauma of a miscarriage. She deserves a lot of credit for holding her head high in the face of difficult times.
The Rancic duo will return to television on October 11, 2010 with new episodes of their hit show. According to people.com, they will share the triumph of their pregnancy as well as the heartbreak of their miscarriage. Perhaps the footage will provide a bit of support to all of the couples in the world who are experiencing, or have experienced, a similar situation. That is all that Bill and Giuliana hope for in sharing their story.
