During Giuliana Rancic’s appearance on “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg advised her frankly, “You know what, you want to have a baby, you need to prepare your body for that other person who’s going to be there.” She added, “And there’s no buts. If you want a baby, this is what you have to do. So you have to make that decision,” (via E! News). Giuliana defended herself by pointing out that she has a stylist who brings her clothes in a standard size, and she has to fit into them. Nonetheless, the TV star managed to gain some weight, but she still couldn’t get pregnant.
Giuliana and her husband, Bill Rancic, subsequently turned to IVF and managed to get pregnant on their first attempt but they tragically lost the baby to a miscarriage. Speaking to People, the couple acknowledged that it completely shattered them and even made Giuliana want to walk away from her fertility journey for good because she couldn’t handle the mental toll it took. But they persevered through and continued with the IVF treatments.
In fact, in 2010, Giuliana told Us Weekly she would sometimes take 63 IVF injections a month. Unfortunately, their second attempt also failed. The reality star described it as “the biggest kick in the stomach” to Health magazine. Giuliana also felt saddened that she was in such an incredible position where she could give a child the best life possible, but things weren’t working out. Thankfully, it wasn’t long before the Rancics’ situation finally got better.
