Giuliana and Bill Rancic appeared on the Dr. Oz show on Monday March 31 in which the couple opened up about their struggle with infertility and other health issues.

Giuliana shared her experience with breast cancer. The E! host was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy soon after. In the midst of the difficulty the couple experienced with Juliana’s health, the Rancic’s also learned of their infertility.

In the midst of Juliana’s failed fertility treatment her doctor recommended a mammogram which showed cancer in Giuliana’s breast.

Despite the possibility of the couple conceiving naturally the Rancic’s remained determined to extend their family. The couple welcomed son Edward Duke Rancic via surrogate in August of 2011.

Dr. Oz introduced the topic of Juliana’s small frame being the potential reason for her infertility. Giuliana explained her small frame being a result of genetics. The red carpet host also expressed her feelings of hurt when people comment on her bones seemingly protruding through her back. Giuliana suffered from a spinal disorder diagnosed as scoliosis when she was 13. Rancic’s condition was corrected through surgery but her bones will remain visibly curved.

Giuliana and Bill plan to use the same surrogate to conceive their second child sometime in the near future.
