33 of 261: E! host Giuliana Rancic and husband Bill announced on NBC's 'Today' show on April 23, 2012 that they are set to welcome their first child after years of fertility problems and her recent battle with breast cancer.

A gestational carrier gave birth to their son, Edward,Duke Rancic, on Aug. 29, 2012.

Rancic had opened up about her fertility problems and battle with breast cancer publicly, including on the Style network reality show 'Giuliana and Bill,' which documented her road to recovery and the couple's journey to parenthood.

She said on the ABC show 'The View' in September 2010 that she had had a miscarriage and that she and her husband had planned to start in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments to try and conceive. The first two were unsuccessful. During a doctor's appointment to discuss a third IVF treatment, Rancic was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a double masectomy in December 2011.
