He will do funny little faces and looks like a old man at times he also goes back and forth with me like if i go "um" he will do it right back and it will just keep going."

Giuliana and Bill Rancic Celebrate Their Baby Shower

E!News anchor, Giuliana Rancic, and her husband Bill are giving us a sneak peek into their baby shower! After sharing their fertility struggles with the world on their reality show, Giuliana and Bill, they revealed that they are expecting their first child via a surrogate later this year.

At the celebrity couple's baby shower the gender of their newest addition was revealed - it's a boy! They also shared their decision to bank the baby's cord blood. Giuliana says:

"Cord blood banking with CBR is the best baby shower gift because Bill and I, just like any parent to be, want a healthy future for our family.  Many people have a family history of diseases that can be treated with stem cells.  We want other pregnant women out there to get educated on the importance of banking at It is so important!"

80-100 friends and family members joined in the celebration at the couple's house.
