Parents-to-Be Giuliana and Bill Rancic Disagree on Discipline, Family Size

Bill and Giuliana Rancic

Um…isn’t this something parents should see eye-to-eye on before the baby comes?

Giuliana Rancic told People at a press event over the weekend that she and husband Bill aren’t exactly on the same page when it comes to certain aspects of parenting.

Discipline is one of them. The couple, expecting their first child via gestational surrogate this summer, will be dealing with their youngster differently depending on its gender.

If they have a boy, it’s Dad who’ll lay down the law, she says. “The reason being that when you have a mother-son bond, he’s like your prince – you don’t want to discipline him,” Giuliana explains.

A girl, on the other hand, will wrap her dad around her little finger. “But, to be honest, chances are I will discipline, because I’m a crazy Italian chick,” she jokes.

The other area on which they differ is the number of little Rancics they plan to have.

“I want a big brood,” the E! host told the magazine. “Bill could be one and done. My motto is, five and done.”

Of course, the two are simply delighted to be so close to achieving their dream of having a family of any size. As those who’ve been following the Rancics’ story (or watching their show, Giuliana & Bill) know, their road to parenthood has been hampered by years of doctors’ visits, infertility treatments, miscarriage and Giuliana’s battle against breast cancer.

And as any parent also knows, one’s take on discipline and number of kids can change in an instant – such as the day you catch your “little prince” smearing finger paints on the new sofa.

We can’t wait to watch the new parents in action soon!
