E! stars Giuliana and Bill Rancic's struggles to conceive have been well-documented, and now the couple have been dealt another tragic blow in their journey to having children. The loved-up pair have been trying hard to bring their second child into the world, but, unfortunately, their surrogate has miscarried.
While they tried to keep their hopes of having another child secret, they have apparently been trying for baby No. 2 throughout the filming of the latest season of Giuliana and Bill, the 43-year-old entrepreneur revealed to People.
"This whole season on Giuliana and Bill we've been trying to have another baby," he said. "Unfortunately our surrogate Delphine who we love very much had a miscarriage. It's something that we didn't see coming. We were devastated."
The couple's first child, Duke, was born in August of 2012 via surrogate, and although the couple were hopeful for their second child, they are no strangers to the heartbreak of miscarriages.
"She was about nine weeks pregnant. We were pretty close to getting into the safe zone. We experienced a miscarriage years ago when we were trying with Giuliana, so we had been keeping the pregnancy news tight to the vest."
"Delphine is amazing. We hit the surrogate lottery when we met her. Obviously this was no fault of hers," Bill continued. "It's a double sadness because we didn't want her to feel bad. And Giuliana was rather distraught at first, but she's tough. In times like this we rely on our faith. Once the tears went away we started to look towards the future."
And while the couple have no plans to give up trying for a second child anytime soon, they are loving parenthood and enjoying spending time with their 21-month-old son.
We wish the Rancics all the best in the future.
