The couple are using the same surrogate to give birth to their second child.

Bill, 42, and Giuliana, 39, had difficulty conceiving the first child and turned to IVF until Giuliana miscarried at nine weeks. It soon emerged that she had breast cancer after their third IVF attempt in 2010 which would mean the TV star would have to take medication for the condition for five years.
Despite Giuliana's health difficulties, the couple still decided to go ahead and began to look for a suitable surrogate once eggs had been harvested. They soon found a willing surrogate and announced that a successful impregnation had taken place early last year. On August 29th 2012, Bill and Giuliana welcomed Edward Duke Rancic into their lives.

Now it seems that the stars of Guiliana and Bill have loved their experience as parents so far and they'd like to give Duke a little brother or sister. The last series of their show ended with the couple asking their gestational carrier if she would be interested in carrying baby no.2 and to their delight she must have said "yes."
"We've got our [gestational] carrier, who carried Duke - she's on board! Having a brother or sister in the house is definitely in the future for Duke," the couple announced to Life & Style magazine.

Bill reiterated that the reward of a baby is enough, no matter how it is welcomed: "It doesn't matter how you get your little baby. When you're holding the baby in your arms and you see their smile, it doesn't matter."
