After the harrowing bout with breast cancer Giuliana Rancic faced, she certainly deserves all the happiness and family in the world. A double mastectomy and a doctor’s warnings about hormone levels aggravating her condition pushed the couple away from normal birth routes. Instead of taking a walk down Adoption Boulevard, they opted to spend thousands of dollars on fertility treatments and surrogacy. Their first baby, Duke, born seven weeks ago, is an adorable test tube baby, and the couple is excited to announce that more Petri dishes are on the way.
“We’ve got a few embryos on ice. They’re ready to go!” Giuliana told Life & Style. “A lot of people have one kid and it’s enough. But for us, we’re just having so much fun that we’d love to have another child.” Because, you know, that’s how babies are made! Mommy kisses daddy, they drive to the doctor, extract their special love for each other, mix it in a bowl, inject it into a lady who will probably be called “Auntie” in the future, and BAM. It’s the miracle of birth. Bill went even further, hinting, “the wheels are in motion, we already have plans in the works!”
The couple hopes to use their first surrogate, Delphine. Please don’t misconstrue my feelings. I wish the couple nothing but happiness. But why, in this country, is it so commonplace to seek these crazy fertility treatments when so many beautiful kids are in need of families? I don’t see any merit in the continuation of your own blood line, and I hope that people watching the stress that Giuliana and Bill faced through this will motivate hopeful parents to consider adoption. What do you think of the Rancic’s news?
