Celeb news: Giuliana and Bill announce the sex of their baby.

A few months ago, Giuliana and Bill Rancic announced they were  expecting their first child together.

Now they’ve announced the sex of that baby.

Giuliana tweeted today:

The couple are having the baby via a gestational surrogate—which means the baby will their genetic child.

“We are so thrilled that our prayers have been answered,” Giuliana said in an interview with E! in April. “We are absolutely ecstatic to be sharing this with everyone who has been following our journey,” Bill said.

It is well known the reality TV couple have been trying to conceive for a few years, but have faced set set backs including failed IVF treatments, a miscarriage and Giuliana’s battle with breast cancer.  Late last year Giuliana underwent a double mastectomy.
