It was a double celebration!
After kicking off the fabulous festivities at their coed baby shower in Beverly Hills on June 17, Bill Rancic and Giuliana Rancic announced to 100 of their closest family and friends that they're having a boy -- and now Life & Style exclusively takes you inside one of the happiest days of their lives.
"It was great to finally share it with everyone," an emotional Giuliana, 36, shared with Life & Style. "I've always wanted a little Bill -- my husband is the most gorgeous guy in the world, and I want our baby to look exactly like him!"
"Her brains, my athleticism," Bill, 41, adds.
The reality couple -- who were joined by guests including Melissa Rivers and Lisa Ling -- opened a giant box to release dozens of blue balloons after the big reveal.
"We are thrilled beyond belief," Giuliana, who wore a gorgeous Miguelina Sammy dress in Lemon, adds. "It's so funny, because since I was a kid I've always wanted a boy. But we would not have cared either way."
Of course, emotions (as well as the Nicolas Feuillatte champagne and OneHope wine) were overflowing as everyone reflected on Giuliana's struggle with infertility and her recent battle with breast cancer.
"Now that the medical stuff is done, we can focus on the baby," she said. "Even though I'm not pregnant, I've been dreaming about the baby. I had heard that I'd feel a connection, but I didn't really believe it! I dream of the baby in a blue blanket, and it's the cutest little boy!"
"Mindy Weiss and my two best friends planned it," Giuliana says about the party, which even featured a cake (by Cupcakes Couture, of Manhattan Beach, Calif.) that paid tribute to the little boy on the way -- it was blue ombré inside! "The shower was exactly what I envisioned. I love anything with a white tent and white sofas, where people can just hang and chill out. Mindy did that. She made the vision come to life."
