STYLE MEDIA'S "GIULIANA & BILL" GET THE NEWS OF A LIFETIME THIS TUESDAY, APRIL 24 AT 8PM ET/PT
Style To Premiere "Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams"
A Surrogacy Special Hosted By Giuliana and Bill Rancic Immediately Following At 9pm ET/PT
LOS ANGELES -- April 23, 2012 - As announced this morning on the "Today" show, Giuliana and Bill Rancic are having a baby via a gestational carrier. For the past five seasons on "Giuliana & Bill," viewers have followed the couple as they have struggled to conceive, going through three rounds of in vitro fertilization, a miscarriage and then Giuliana's battle with breast cancer. But on Tuesday, April 24 at 8pm ET/PT viewers will get a behind the scenes look at their decision to proceed with a gestational carrier and the moving phone call that they are in fact pregnant.
"Over the years we have opened our lives to Style viewers," said Giuliana and Bill Rancic. "We are thrilled to be able to share this happy news with our fans and to help inform others who may also be struggling with fertility. This Style special will answer many questions we also had during this process."
Immediately following the poignant episode, Style will premiere a 30-minute special on surrogacy, "Giuliana & Bill: Baby Dreams," hosted by Giuliana and Bill Rancic at 9pm ET/PT. Nearly 7 million families are struggling to get pregnant, accounting for approximately 10 percent of the American population. While pregnancy through a gestational carrier is still a small but growing field, more than 1,400 U.S. babies were born this way in 2010, and many more such births are thought to go unreported. The special will explore several couples' surrogacy journeys and uncover some of the myths and controversy surrounding this growing trend.
"Giuliana & Bill" is produced by Comcast Entertainment Studios, a division of NBCUniversal. Executive producers are Robert Sizemore and Jay James for Comcast Entertainment Studios and Giuliana Rancic and Bill Rancic for You & I Productions. Renee G. Simon and Ruth Rafidi serve as network executives on the show.
