Digital Spy recently caught up with Bill to speak about their baby news, whether their child will appear in Giuliana & Bill, and how Giuliana's doing healthwise...
First of all, congratulations on your baby news! Is it a relief that you don't have to keep it a secret anymore?
"Well yes, it is a relief to finally be able to tell everyone our good news. We were so happy to finally be able to share this great news with everyone who has followed our quest to start a family."
The moment when you found out you'd be having a baby was obviously really emotional - was it strange having that caught on camera?
"It was a bit surreal, I must say. You expect that there are going to be personal feelings and emotions revealed on camera when you do a show like this, but the actual moment is never quite what you expected it to be."
How far ahead are you with planning for the baby? Have you started decorating a nursery yet?
"Are you kidding? We are planners, for sure. I think Giuliana has already filled out applications for pre-schools in LA."
Have you chosen any names?
"Lots of them. But it will all come down to the moment of birth before we actually decide on the one that fits the baby."
You have a gestational surrogate - are you planning to keep a relationship going with her?
"I don't know that 'planning' is the right word. I think all relationships just evolve naturally, so that is yet to be determined. No reason not to, though. She is giving us an incredible gift and we will be forever thankful for that."
Would you be open to including your baby in your show in the future?
"The baby will certainly be a part of our show, because it will be such a huge part of our lives. No way around that. But we certainly won't allow the show to run the baby's life. Baby comes first!"
You and Giuliana have both said that you are hoping to renew your vows this year - is that still a plan, even with how busy it is having a baby on the way?
"You'll have to watch the new season for more on this story!"
You had a tough year last year as Giuliana discovered that she had cancer, but you've said that 2012 will be the Year of the Rancics. Do you still feel that way?
"It absolutely is the Year of the Rancics, in every possible way. No doubt about it."
How is Giuliana at the moment?
"Great. Feeling wonderful, looking fantastic and so full of life... I am blessed."
It must have been difficult for you - did you ever wish that you weren't being followed by the cameras or ask for filming to be stopped?
"Of course there were moments when it would have been nice not to have cameras there, but they are part of the bargain and we weren't going to deny fans the real stuff that was going on."
Fans love your relationship with Giuliana - how has that changed in the last few months?
"I appreciate her infinitely. She is joy to me."
Giuliana's parents came to stay with you and we see that in the show - how did you find that?
"Mama DePandi can cook better than anyone in the entire world... need I say more?"
Have you been surprised by the fans' response to both Giuliana's health and the news of the baby?
"Yes and no. I knew they would be supportive, but... nobody expected the immense outpouring of love. That internet is a powerful instrument!"
What's your favourite moment from this season of Giuliana & Bill?
"Giuliana is cancer-free."
What are you excited about for the rest of 2012?
"Being a dad and watching Giuliana become a mother."
Giuliana & Bill airs Wednesdays at 10pm on Style (Sky 253).
