Bill and Giuliana Rancic know heartbreak all too well.
And in a new interview, Bill reveals they’ve faced yet another hardship: The loss of a child.
“This whole season on Giuliana and Bill we’ve been trying to have another baby,” says The Apprentice alum, who stars on the E! reality series with his wife and their adorable son, Duke, 21 months.
“Unfortunately our surrogate Delphine who we love very much had a miscarriage. It’s something that we didn’t see coming. We were devastated.”

He adds, “She was about nine weeks pregnant. We were pretty close to getting into the safe zone.”
Their road to building a family has been a tough one. Giuliana, who beat breast cancer in 2011, suffered a miscarriage at nine weeks in 2010.
The duo had long been dealing with their fertility issues, admitting they had been trying to conceive a child since 2008.
Four years later, their prayers of having a child were answered when Delphine gave birth to Duke.
But the E! News host, 39, and her hubby aren’t giving up on baby No. 2.
“We’re fighters. Hopefully we’re going to have good news and Delphine will be on board one more time,” Bill, 43, exclusively tells People.
“We’ve had to battle it out and that’s something that we’re going to continue to do.”
