>>> back now at 8:10 with giuliana and bill rancic who have experienced the highest highs and the lowest lows all in the public eye. last august came the biggest thrill of them all, the birth of their little boy .
>> how does it feel, hon sme.
>> it feels good. i feel like i'm not nervous at all. i feel like i can take care of him.
>> what you expected?
>> i expected to be more nervous and more flustered, like i had no idea what to do, but i feel like total at ease.
>> and giuliana and bill, welcome back to you. how are you guys doing?
>> great. great to finally be here with good news
>> i know, i know, we're doing great.
>> you and i have caught up and you and i have not. how is fatherhood treating you?
>> amazing. all my buddies were telling me what it was going to be like but until you actually experience it, you have no idea, so it's been absolutely magical for us.
>> now, you guys named him edward duke and i loved how you said you wouldn't give him any goofy celebrity names, but, bill, are you still calling him the duke?
>> we kind of go back and forth. my father who passed away was named edward and her father's name is eduardo so we named him edward as a tribute to both of our fathers. thought duke was a cool name. it means leader. kind of going back and forth and see what sticks.
>> he does have a wunsie that says the duke and it's right on his butt and love when he wears it.
>> and will love when you show those pictures later in life. how are you doing? is he letting you sleep?
>> no, not at all. but that's to be expected. it's okay. haven't been getting much sleep. the other night was pretty rough. moved into a new house so he slept in his new nursery for the first time and a crib for the first time, been in a little cradle, and he was not happy.
>> not happeny.
>> so he was up about every hour but that's okay. that's part of all of this.
>> bill was just saying he's a big eater.
>> eats like a horse, almost 17 pounds, born at 7.5 and more than doubled his weight in three months which is great.
>> parenthood obviously really suits you. giuliana , we always want to check in and see how you're doing and feeling after everything you've been through.
>> so much has happened in a year or so.
>> it's wild. it really is wild when i look back, and i watch this footage actually and i just can't believe it, you know. that feels like so long ago that we held him, you know, in our arms for the first time which is three months ago, but i'm great. i'm terrific, you know. i beat the cancer so far, and i go every three months for blood work. i take medicine and so i feel very lucky to be here.
>> i wanted to mention actually, another young lady , 24-year-old ellen rose in a miss america contest from d.c., i think she ran as representing maryland.
>> but she announced to the world that she's going to have a double mastectomy because breast cancer really runs in her family. i know you reached out to her.
>> i did. she said she followed me on twitter, so i dm'd her and we spoke on the phone the other day, good for you, for getting out of there and getting in front of your health and being an inspiration to young women . young women will look at her and say, wow, you know, she's choosing her health over vanity.
>> we're here, of course, because season five of your show starts. you've done so much. you've lived your life so publicly for good and for bad. how is that going to change as you go forward, especially with the baby? i'm sure that's something you guys have talked about.
>> i think having a baby has changed our lives dramatically, and we'll evaluate it and this particular episode that airs tonight we do show the birth of him, and i think we'll just see where we go from here, whether he lives his life with the cameras on or not, is yet to be determined, but we thought we owed it to all the people on this journey with us to show them, you know, that one in six couples struggle with infertility and if you stick with it, never quit it will play off.
>> if you see there's shaky footage tonight, that's because we shot -- we shot the whole episode so we apologize for any of that.
>> you have many other talents. bill and giuliana , sticking around for the next hour and give our regards to the duke. catch the latest episode tonight at 8:00, 7:00 central on the style network .
