The glamorous E! News presenter and entrepreneur husband Bill Rancic had been trying to get pregnant naturally for a long time, before finally welcoming their first son Edward Duke Rancic via surrogate in Denver last August.

While promoting their upcoming season of their hit reality TV show Giuliana & Bill, the couple have mentioned that they want a resilient child and have shared the measures they will go to ensure that little Edward is toughened up.

Giuliana spoke to OK! magazine USA about her fears, saying, “This season I try to tackle a lot of my fears like heights and roller coasters because what it came down to was for the first time I realized, wow, my son is going to see his mom is scared of everything and then he might get scared of everything. I’m trying to take care of that in my life so that I raise a kid who is adventurous and enjoys life and explores.”

Bill explained his parenting philosophies and how he is already starting to ensure he has a brave boy.

“I took him tubing,” Bill said. “I think for a lot of Americans right now, a lot of people are raising a generation of wimps. I’m not kidding. I’ve seen this with my siblings and my friends and I’m like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that in our household, am I right?’ I still want a son who is loving, compassionate, sensitive and treats people well. But I don’t want a wimp.”

The couple have joked about taking their tot on extreme activities to expose him to life. Giuliana added, “As long as he doesn’t get a concussion [anything goes].” She went on to say, “No, but it’s true, we do try to expose him to everything and, like Bill said, not have him grow up as a wimp and be scared of every little thing. I kind of grew up a little bit of a wimp. I have all of these fears.”

What do you think about the couple’s approach to parenting and raising a tough kid? Is it too much too young, or is it just what society needs? We will have to find out more in the upcoming season of Giuliana & Bill.
