Bill and Giuliana Rancic want the world to know this: Fertility problems are nothing to be ashamed of. To that end, the couple has been very open about their struggles to conceive and undergoing the emotionally exhausting IVF process. And they are talking about the heartbreak of experiencing a miscarriage at nine weeks following their first IVF attempt.
“Both of us were in shock,” Bill, 39, said. “Failure wasn’t an option!” Giuliana, 36, says she was devastated. “I said, ‘I’m not doing this again. I can’t.’ I was angry at life and at God.”
When Giuliana & Bill returns Oct. 11, they will share footage of the happy news of Giuliana’s pregnancy and the devastation of losing the pregnancy. “Hopefully we can help people understand that there’s nothing to be ashamed of,” says Giuliana. “It’s such a taboo subject, but it’s a very common problem.”
