Blue or pink, what do you think?

The results of the shower are in — and a flurry of blue balloons has confirmed that it’ll be a boy for Giuliana and Bill Rancic.

Due later this summer, the E! News host and her Apprentice winner husband will welcome their son via gestational surrogate.

“We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad!” Giuliana tells E!. “We just can’t wait!”

“We are beyond excited to be having a little boy,” adds Bill.

The couple announced their happy news in April, but kept the sex of the baby a secret until now.

“If we have a [son], Bill will be the disciplinarian. The reason being that when you have a mother-[son] bond, he’s like your prince — you don’t want to discipline him,” Giuliana, 37, told PEOPLE recently.

I am so happy for them!! They deserve it! I wonder if she we work less when the baby comes? It will be hard for her to slow down her thriving career but I think she will want to raise the baby and not have full time help? we will see!! It will be life changing no matter what. I know people who have had infertility issues and people who get pregnant quickly- and either way, once the first baby arrives it totally rocks your world and switches your priorities- no matter how they were concevied or birthed

“Giuliana – in a yellow dress – and Bill released a set of blue balloons into the sky to the cheers of partygoers”

Congrats on the baby, but it seems irresponsible to release something that could harm and choke wildlife to celebrate a new life, kwim ?

Shut Up Megan!!!! Geez!!!! There is ALWAYS one in the crowd that will be a DEBBIE DOWNER!!!!…. Balloons are released for many occasions…. Congrats to the Rancic’s!!!!

Megan, you can buy balloons that are biodegradable and disintegrate when they reach a certain temp. I agree with you that its irresponsible to harm another creature- even in celebration, so hopefully they were earth-friendly.

I’m so happy that they are finding a way to have a family. As a mother of 3 IVF babies, I know how difficult and rewarding that journey can be. **please discipline that baby though…there’s nothing ‘worse’ than an undisciplined child running wild’** (I do understand that she may have been joking….but….maybe not….)!

Releasing balloons is perfectly safe if done right. Why do ppl always assume the worst?

megan – I agree. And I don’t see why mentioning her apparently yellow dress is necessary in that same sentence either. Is it because the dress in the pic is black..? I don’t even know who this woman is. I’m happy that they’re having a baby after what seems like long hardships, that is great.

That’s so exciting! I’m a fan of Giuliana’s work for quite some time and it makes me very happy that they’re finally making their dream of having a family come true. Congratulations to them.

May God Bless you and your beautiful little boy! Happy for you and bill….. you will get your girl on the next go round…. We love you and stay strong!!! The best is yet to come!!!

I hope she doesn’t let her new little boy walk all over her… letting dad be the sole disciplinarian will not go well…

Megan if you can’t say something nice then don’t! I guess it is impossible for people to be genuinley happy for others! Stop being bitter and enjoy life.

Linda on

I pray every day for them and pray that everything will be okay. They are such a loving and devoted couple. Wish they didn’t have to go through so much to get to this point. Now lets pray all of them have a long healthy and happy life.
