WTTM Giuliana Rancic

Late last night when the news that the Rancic’s surrogate was in labor, I breathed a big sigh of relief.  Finally, a celebrity mother I could stomach!

This week has been full of some pretty grim “famous” baby “news”.

Holly Madison, Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriend is pregnant.  Who?  How am I supposed to feel about that?  Good for you for realizing an 80-year-old might not be your best shot at having a family?

And as adorable as those McConaughey children are, Camila pregnant again with a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old only gives people an easy segue into “so Carinn, now that Chloe is 18-months, are you thinking about another?”  Another what?  Another glass of wine?  Sure.  Oh you meant another baby?  Only if you’ll take the two I have now.

It was honestly looking like I would have to put Snooki on a pedestal – no, not so she could reach the kitchen counter, a metaphorical pedestal – for tweeting that she “loves nursing [her] little man” four days into his life.  Or showing us how she’s grown spiritually since becoming a mother with this gem, “#BreastPump insteada #FistPump.”  The Huffington Post even congratulated her for being a vocal breastfeeder saying “at a time when women are constantly being shamed for breastfeeding in public, it’s important to many nursing moms that public figures endorse the practice.”  I was about to take a sip of the Kool-Aid myself when you broke me of the crazy spell with news of Rancic labor via Twitter.

So thank you G, for sharing every bit of your heartbreaking journey with us; from your struggles with infertility, your experiences with IVF, your gratitude for the gestational carrier willing to bring your baby into this world.  You are what Welcome to the Motherhood is all about – putting a face to our modern-day mama struggles and letting so many of us know we aren’t alone in the rollercoaster that is the journey of motherhood.

Finally, Edward Duke Rancic entered the world last night at 7lbs 4oz.  Welcome to the Motherhood Giuliana!  Enjoy the ride.

  1. This is so you and so WTTM. Not only am I going to have to follow snooki on Twitter (because I have plenty of life to waste there), but I am going to have the image of her breastfeeding all day. And yes, while I often think that want Mrs. Rancic to eat a hamburger already (that’s me being judgey), I am so grateful that she’s as honest about struggles as she is. It’s hard as hell to get pregnant for some of us and it’s really hard to keep babies inside cooking (for others of us) and I have heard her speak pretty genuinely about all of it. For that, I am so grateful. For her and for you.

    • She is a pretty fascinating person – did you know she didn’t speak a word of English until she was 9 or 10? They lived in Italy until then. And I’ll give you that she needs to gain the same 10 lbs that I need, but everything I’ve seen of her leads me to believe she keeps it real. *fistbump*

  2. Oh Snooki. I hadn’t heard about that #fistpump tweet but that’s a little bit of genius. I tell myself Camila is some sort of robot – she always looks too fresh and glowy to truly be a mother of two toddlers. And does she ever gain any baby weight? Interesting factoids about Giuliana – even though she is married to an Apprentice winner, I might have to like her now.

    • She IS too dewy and glowy for a mom of two toddlers! Thank you for saying that! It doesn’t help that I am of latina origin and I already feel like it’s supposed to come more naturally than it does. I understand your hesitance but everything I learn about G shows me she’s the real deal.

  3. I love this :) And yes, for some reason I really love Giuliana! Might have to do with wanting her to have some happiness after all that struggle. Little does she know, the chaos is just beginning 😉 and now I have to cross Duke off my baby name list. Whatever.

    • Me too! I’m so glad to have someone who already appreciates her. It’s true, it’s just the beginning! I love the name Duke and it’s what we called my son for the first year of his life. You should keep it on the list!

  4. Wow, you’re keeping me up with current celeb news, I didn’t know about any of this stuff! I agree with you about Giuliana, I’m definitely a fan when famous people are brave enough to be really honest and show the bad along with the good & that everything isn’t so perfect. Good for them, she’s been through a lot! Love her for keeping it real (Kendra is my favorite in that category but I’ll give some love to Giulianna too :)

    • I spent too much time on Twitter yesterday and this was the result! Up to my eyeballs in pop culture. I’m with you – so many “reality” shows are manipulative and show only what they want you to see. There are only a few who are willing to show the true struggles and issues so we gotta love them!

  5. I’m behind on my celebrity news and appreciate you bringing me up to speed! I love Guiliana (always watch her commentary on the red carpet during the awards shows) and forgot she was preggers. Happy news and a lovely tribute to moms everywhere. Now, Snooki as a mom role model is hard to swallow. Somehow, against my will, you made me think differently about her. That’s impressive blogging! Thanks for that!
