When you’re expecting your first baby, it’s a blessing and a half to have a veteran mom as a friend. Only someone who’s been there can fill you in on the realities of parenthood, let you know what necessities to buy and assure you that the sleepless nights and helpless feelings do end (eventually).
For Giuliana Rancic, who’s expecting a baby boy via gestational surrogate in about four weeks, that friend is none other than Kris Jenner, whose experience parenting her five daughters has given her plenty of wisdom to share.
“Kris Jenner is like my second mother,” Giuliana tells Us Weekly. “Kris gives me the greatest advice. You’ll email her one question, one line, and she’ll respond in four paragraphs. She’s the most thorough, amazing woman.”
Among the goodies: Ralph Lauren polo shirts from the London Olympics. “And she sent Baby’s First Golf Clubs! Bill died when he saw that.”
Giuliana is in London herself, covering the Games for E!News. If everything goes as scheduled, she’ll be back home before their surrogate gives birth. When the time comes, Giuliana and Bill will travel to Colorado to see their son born; the new family will then spend a few weeks in Chicago on business before settling down to their life in L.A.
Fellow moms – do you have any advice for Giuliana in these last few pre-baby days?
