GIULIANA Rancic hated leaving her baby to return to work this week.
The E! News anchor, 37, welcomed her first son Edward Duke with her 41-year-old husband Bill Rancic via a gestational surrogate in August. She returned from three-months maternity leave on Monday and admits it was really hard.
“It was hard to leave the little guy I’m not going to kid you. But you know pulling into the E! parking lot I swear to God it was like I’d never left. It came right back, it was like riding a bike,” she said.
“He’s only three miles away. I’m fine. I’m going to do what most moms do. It is hard but hopefully I’m going to bring him in a couple of days of the week. He’s so new. He’s only 11 weeks old.”
Rancic said she was so determined to succeed professionally that she forgot about her biological clock and was “blindsided” when they couldn’t conceive a child.
“It was a big shock! I always say how I chased my career instead of chasing guys,” she said.
“And everybody was patting me on the back. No one ever told me, ‘Oh, by the way, your eggs change when you reach a certain age.’ I didn’t think 35 was old.
“So when the doctor said, ‘It’s not as easy as you thought it would be,’ it was a real blow. Because I felt so young. I mean, this is a girl who was running six miles a day, and eating healthy, so how can you tell me that I’m not healthy in that department?”
