Well that was FAST! You know, I’ve always liked Giuliana Rancic for several reasons, but ever since she announced that she is expecting her first child via a surrogate, she’s been all over the tabloids, hasn’t she? Well, I guess you really can’t judge her because I’m sure it’s just because she’s overwhelmed with incredible happiness after everything she’s gone through in the past few years. If there’s anybody in the celebrity world who really truly deserves to be happy, it’s Giuliana.
Well, the new mom and her husband Bill are showing off their newborn (emphasis on “new’) Edward Duke on the cover of Life & Style Weekly. I mean, he just came out of the womb in what seems like a few weeks ago and now he’s on the cover of his first magazine. Didn’t I tell you that celebrity babydom is big business?
Inside the mag, Giuliana talks about how of course motherhood has changed her and all the great things about Knight Edward Duke. Here’s a snippet:
“I had always heard that when you have a baby it completes your life — and it’s true,” Giuliana tells Life & Style. “I love my baby, and I love my new role.”
The ecstatic new parents posed with their son — they call him Duke — during the exclusive photo shoot at the Presidential Suite at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago on Sept. 9.
“Every day he’s changing — it’s just remarkable to see,” Bill, 41, tells Life & Style. “[He’s] got Giuliana’s dimples!”
Explaining how they came up with his name, Giuliana shares, “Edward is Bill’s late dad’s name and my dad’s name. It was a way to honor them. And Duke means leader.”
The E! News host is a natural at motherhood. “It’s amazing how maternal instincts have taken over, and Giuliana’s just supermom,” raves Bill. “It literally brought tears to my eyes the other day watching her with Duke.”
Bill even teases his wife about how much she enjoys changing diapers. “I’d never changed more than a diaper or two in my life,” she laughs. “Now it’s like the littlest things that make me happy — happier than I’ve ever been.”
Also, aren’t you surprised too that Giuliana and Bill went with L&S rather than People or Us Weekly? I thought they were a little higher up on the hierarchy list of reality television celebs. He is a cutie though, isn’t he?
