DENVER, Colo. -- (KTLA) -- Reality television stars Bill and Giuiana Rancic have welcomed a baby boy to their family.
Edward Duke was born in Denver via a gestational surrogate on Wednesday night, weighing in at 7 pounds and 4 ounces.
The couple -- who will celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary on Saturday -- were in the delivery room for the labor and the birth.
Bill Rancic, an entrepreneur and motivational speaker who won the first season of "The Apprentice," cut the baby's umbilical cord.
Giuliana Rancic, who hosts E! News, told the network that Edward is "doing incredibly well," and that she and Bill are "so in love with the little guy already!"
The couple announced that they were expecting a baby via surrogate on 'The Today Show' back in January.
The pair's problems conceiving, including multiple rounds of IVF and a miscarriage, played out publicly on their show "Giuliana & Bill."
Last summer, Giuliana was set to undergo another round of IVF when she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
After choosing to undergo a double mastectomy, she is now cancer free.
The couple was set up with the surrogate by their doctor in Colorado after their last IVF attempt.
Because it is a gestational surrogate, the baby will be their biological child.
Giuliana said on 'Today' that finding out the surrogate was pregnant was "pretty much one of the best moments of my life, if not the best moment of my life."
"We had two embryos that we had banked prior to learning about the breast cancer and, you know, with the medicine she's going on, this was our last effort," Bill said.
"We want to thank all the folks who watched the Giuliana & Bill show because they've been praying for us, and they've been with us on this journey," he said.
