Giuliana Rancic has struggled with so much- cancer, fertility and body image scrutiny…but now the reality star and E! News host is ready to talk about another personal struggle…
Giuliana and her husband Bill welcomed their son Duke via surrogate in 2012, but learned (on New Years Eve no less) that their surrogate miscarried their last remaining embryo. People reports:
“It was painful,” Giuliana, 40, tells PEOPLE. “We were so optimistic with this last embryo. We thought, ‘This is definitely going to work. This is our last shot.’ ”
The Rancics had three remaining embryos: two were successfully implanted in their surrogate in 2014; she miscarried weeks later. The latest loss, however, “was the toughest blow,” Giuliana says. “It was a really hard time.”
Getting pregnant herself would be a risk for the reality star, who is taking cancer-suppressing medication following her 2011 breast cancer diagnosis (and subsequent double mastectomy), but Giuliana remains hopeful about growing her family.
“We’re open to everything,” says the E! personality, whose memoir, Going Off Script, hits shelves April 7. “I think adoption is a beautiful gift you’re giving each other. And it’s funny, I’m even more open to [adoption] than I was before. Because I think to myself, ‘I love Duke so much, if I couldn’t take care of him, I hope there would be someone else who would love him.’ ”
Aw, I feel for Giuliana; she has not had an easy time of things. I’m sure her and Bill will make wonderful parents to Duke and any other children they choose to bring into their lives! In fact, I bet we’ll hear of them adopting in the next couple years, don’t you think?

Remember a super preggers Milla Jovovich hiking around LA? Well, sadly, those days are gone…
I mean to say, she had her BABY! The Resident Evil actress and husband Paul Anderson announced that they had given birth to their second daughter (the couple already had a 7-year-old, Ever Gabo) in the early hours of this morning. And NO, this is not an April Fool’s joke.
According to E! online, heir rep said:
“Milla delivered her daughter Dashiel at 5:45 this morning. Everyone is thrilled and beyond happy!”
The rep also added:
“Milla is in cuddle mode with her new daughter!”
Adorable. Glad the family is happy and healthy. But back to the fun stuff: what do YOU think of Milla’s little girl’s name? I think Dashiel is super unconventional, but also kinda pretty (right noir fans?). Leave your feedback below!

Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross reveal…they’re having a baby girl!
People reports that the mom-to-be was anxious to find out the sex of her daughter with new hubby Ross; they confirmed they were expecting in December. “I like to know — I want to do the nursery,” she says.
According to the singer and actress, they found out that they were expecting this past Thanksgiving, which she calls “a cute, fun day.”
The happy couple tied the knot in a bohemian-style ceremony in August, then took off for a sun-soaked honeymoon in Bali.
The baby girl will be Simpson’s first child with actor-musician Ross, 26. Simpson is already mom to son Bronx Mowgli, 6, with ex-husband Pete Wentz.
“I told him pretty early on,” Simpson says of breaking the news to her firstborn. “And he wanted to have a sister, so he’s really excited! He’s got a little brother. Now he’s going to have a little sister!”
True- Bronx is going to be a big brother to both a little boy and girl. He’s already a big brother to Saint Laszlo, Wentz’s 5-month-old son with longtime girlfriend Meagan Camper.
Congrats, you crazy kids!
