Couples reality show, Giuliana and Bill, also premiered its fifth season this week
Giuliana and Bill Rancic went on the Today Show on Monday to discuss the continuation of the plan they had before Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer: having a baby. Giuliana and Bill also debuted its fifth season this week, kicking off the season with the Giuliana’s diagnosis and how the couple dealt with the awful news.
Giuliana and Bill found out about the early stage breast cancer when Giuliana did a mammogram that was required of the fertility clinic they were going to. On the season premier of Giuliana and Bill on Monday, Giuliana broke down remembering how she felt when she found out, “It’s not easy talking about it because it’s like the worst second of your life it’s like awful – it’s like everything you expect that conversation to be like – it’s 100 times worse – it’s a million times worse.” She had been alone, since her husband was out on a charity mission. She also had a hard time telling her mother about her diagnosis over the phone, she said it was almost as bad as finding out herself. She said the conversation was heartbreaking, “I just started falling apart, she was so sad, I felt so bad.
After undergoing a double mastectomy in December, Giuliana and Bill are excited to try to start a family again. Giuliana told the Today Show, “We are definitely having to explore other options. We absolutely want a child. As far as getting pregnant myself, with the medication I’m starting… it’s probably not going to happen any time soon.”
Giuliana and Bill also spoke about how their relationship has changed because of her health issues. She said it had “brought us so much closer together. It’s actually helped us find the humor in everything, because when you go though something this tough, you have to, at some point, laugh and get back to your normal life.” She continued, “And that’s what Bill helped me do … It’s really reinvigorated our relationship in many ways, and we’re closer than ever—that’s for sure.”
Giuliana and Bill also plan to renew their vows this summer, “Big party – celebration of life,” Bill said.
