The first day of school was tough for dad Bill Rancic.

“He didn’t want to go!” the reality star tells PEOPLE of Duke, his 3-year-old son with Giuliana Rancic.

But nearly a month later, the tyke is finally adjusting.

“He’s hanging in there now,” Bill says. “Still having the lip out a little bit. But he’s made a lot of friends.”

It’s welcome news for the family, who moved to Chicago full-time earlier this year so that Duke could go to school there. “We love it,” says Bill. “Our son loves city living. This is a great central hub for us.”

And will Duke be getting a sibling anytime soon? “We’ll see,” says Bill. “I’d love for him to have a brother or sister.”

Giuliana and Bill Rancic aren’t actively trying for another baby, but the former E! News anchor admits they’re open to expanding their family.

“We would love to have another child,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s always a conversation we have and it’s something we definitely would love to do. If God blesses us with a child, it’d be incredible.”

But while the couple would “love” to give their son, 3-year-old Edward Duke, a sibling, Giuliana says they have plenty to keep them busy for now.

“There’s really nothing in the works right now to be quite honest,” she shares. “I think there’s been a lot on our plate lately with moving to Chicago and Duke starting school there.”

Giuliana and Bill have been open with their fertility issues on their reality show Giuliana and Bill and she has been public with her battle against breast cancer in 2011.

Giuliana Rancic Fertility Struggle: We Lost Our Last Embryo

Giuliana Rancic finally speaks out about her Fashion Police controversy, the health problems she’s kept secret, and why she’s become shockingly thin. Subscribe now for instant access to the exclusive interview, only in PEOPLE.

Her struggle with infertility was chronicled on Giuliana Rancic‘s reality show, and now, the E! News host is sharing another devastating personal blow.

Giuliana and her husband Bill, who welcomed son Duke via surrogate in 2012, learned on New Year’s Eve that their surrogate — who was pregnant with their third and last remaining embryo — had miscarried.

“It was painful,” Giuliana, 40, tells PEOPLE. “We were so optimistic with this last embryo. We thought, ‘This is definitely going to work. This is our last shot.’ ”

After Duke, now 2½, was born, the Rancics had three remaining embryos. Two were successfully implanted in their surrogate in 2014; she miscarried weeks later. The latest loss, however, “was the toughest blow,” Giuliana says. “It was a really hard time.”

“And Giuliana’s teaching him Italian,” he adds. “It’s great! He’s a sponge.”

Of course, the 43-year-old dad is especially excited to see his son getting into sports. “We go to the park in the afternoon,” he shares. “I’ve got a little tee-ball set up and I’m teaching him to hit the ball. We’re having a lot of fun together.”

As full-time working parents, Giuliana and Bill Rancic have their hands full juggling hosting gigs, speaking engagements and filming for their reality show, Giuliana & Bill.

But one little man in their lives gets first priority: son Edward Duke, 19 months.

“We are busier than ever,” Giuliana, 39, tells PEOPLE. “But it makes it easier to love what I do. I don’t see it as a job. If I had to leave him every day and go somewhere I wasn’t happy, I’d probably be a stay-at-home mom.”

She adds, “We’re just trying to figure out what the next couple of years looks like and make sure Duke has everything he could possibly need.”
