Giuliana Rancic is eternally grateful to the woman who carried her child.
The TV host and husband Bill Rancic welcomed son Duke via gestational carrier in 2012.
According to Giuliana, the surrogate mother is “an angel”.
“She was amazing…literally I think she carried the baby maybe even better than I would have carried the baby,” Giuliana said on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM morning radio show on Friday. “She was so devoted and such a good person. There are so many women out there who want to help who are such amazing women. They’re like angels.”
The 39-year-old went on to talk about how much she and Bill love their son. Giuliana insisted there is absolutely no difference in how a child joins the family – the love is the same.
“Whether it’s adoption or surrogacy or you have a baby naturally…at the end of the day it’s your baby,” she said. “It doesn’t matter how you got it. You’re going to give it love and care for the rest of its life and that’s all that matters.”
The E! host has been blown away by the level of support and encouragement from other women since having Duke. Giuliana encourages women who are thinking of using a surrogate to reach out and educate themselves.
“You will be surprised by the amount of support you will get from your friends and the amount of other women that will come up to you and say, ‘I did the same thing.’ It will make you feel so much better,” she insisted. “You will realize that you are not alone in this. It will be the best thing you’ve ever done.”
