Giuliana and Bill Rancic have welcomed a baby boy.

TV host Bill Rancic tweeted the news this evening, writing, "Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words...We did it!"

The child was born via a gestational surrogate, meaning the baby is genetically theirs but carried by another woman.

Last year, 37-year-old Giuliana announced she had breast cancer and later underwent a double mastectomy. She did not need chemotherapy.

Giuliana and Bill's struggles to conceive a baby have been well-documented with failed IVF treatments and a miscarriage.

Giuliana is the host of E! News and co-host of Fashion Police. Bill is a 40-year-old entrepreneur and motivational speaker who won the first season of Donald Trump's The Apprentice.

Together, they co-star in a reality show on the Style Network called Giuliana & Bill. Much of the show has been devoted to their fertility issues.
