Friends and fans alike were thrilled to hear the news that Giuliana and Bill Rancic are expecting a baby after a long and difficult journey through infertility and Giuliana’s breast cancer treatments.
The couple also made the courageous choice to make public the news that they’re using a gestational surrogate. Surrogacy is a growing option for couples – more than 1,400 babies were born in the U.S. via this method – but it’s not a subject frequently discussed. In fact, experts think many more surrogate births go unreported.
To lift some of the mystery off surrogacy, tomorrow’s Giuliana & Bill episode on the Style network will be followed by a 30-minute special, Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams. The show will discuss the myths and facts about gestational carriers and follow couples who chose that option.
In the meantime, we rounded up some information about surrogacy – and some photos of other celebs who chose it – to give you a better idea of just what Giuliana and Bill had to go through to make their dreams come true.
Have a look!
