Bill and Giuliana Rancic are expecting a boy

It looks like blue will win out over pink as the prevailing color scheme in Bill and Giuliana Rancic's new nursery.

That's because the reality TV couple have announced they're expecting a little boy! The pending parents, who are having the child via a gestational surrogate, gave friends and family the scoop on the baby's sex during their L.A. baby shower on Sunday, according to Us Weekly.

"We are beyond excited to be having a little boy," Bill said of his son, who will make his debut at the end of the summer. "We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad! We just can't wait!"

Breast cancer survivor Giuliana, who over the past few years has chronicled her struggle to get pregnant, echoed her husband’s happy sentiments in May.

The 37-year-old E! News anchor told Us Weekly, "We are so blessed! This truly is a miracle baby."

As they await their newborn, the pair have reportedly been shuttling back and forth between their homes in Chicago and Los Angeles to be with their surrogate during her doctor's appointments.

The couple announced their impending arrival in April.

    I was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 37. Within days of diagnosis I started IVF since time was of essence for many reasons. (I was unsuccesful in getting pregnant prior to breast cancer diagnosis but had not yet tried IVF.) I needed a surrogate to carry my baby since surgery, chemo & tamoxifen would delay my ability to carry a baby for 6 years. I was so fortunate to have younger cousin who offered to carry my baby for me using our frozen embryos. I am now thrilled mother of 18 month old baby. We will use surrogacy agency for next baby. Surrogates are amazing people (as are their families as a ton of family support is critical). I was so fortunate to have amazing doctors in LA. My surgeon

      First off – a little factual information. Guiliana cannot have a child during the next five years. The fertility drugs she requires to become pregnant will more than likely "reactivate" the cancer. Secondly, she didn't "buy" her baby. Yes, it costs money for the IVF procedure and yes, more than likely she is paying for the medical expenses of the surrogate, but these costs would be incurred by anyone who experiences a pregnancy. For that matter, if you have a trusted friend or relative, you can delete those expenses as well. IVF is also performed at many hospitals with a "money-back guarantee" – you don't get pregnant, you don't pay. I'm sorry to hear you have faced (and conquered!) cancer, and anger is a natural response to this situation. Many women face infertility and can choose from several paths to achieving motherhood. I wish you luck in your future.

    So happy for them. I love them both and enjoy watching their show – they are smart, articulate and so funny. They are one of the more relatable couple in Hollywood... and after all they have been through, everyone should be nothing but happy for them. Congrats, can't wait to see the little bambino!

    I'm absolutely disgusted by most of the comments on here. People do not understand how horrible it is for a couple to struggle with infertility unless you have dealt with it yourself. I have followed their story for years and went through IVF at the same time Giuliana did. I now have 1 yr old twin boys. I couldn't be happier for them and am so happy that they finally get their wish of a child. They are so deserving and will make amazing parents. I couldn't imagine dealing with infertility and cancer at the same time. Giuliana handled with such class. For people on here to attack her weight and their character is horrible, I just thank god that I was raised properly. Congrats Bill and Giuliana

    WOW Chris!! you missed the whole thing. The gift is from God, not the surrogate mother. Just to show you how much you know. You can't tell when God uses "people" to love and help each other. Who invented and made it possible for surrogate???? Don't take God's glory away.

    People if you have not got anything nice to say dont say anything at all.

    Congrats to them. Having a wee baby is the best thing in the world and everyone no matter what journey they have to go on should get a chance to experience this.

    Best of luck to you both

    what happened to the female fertilized egg that was supposedly how the cancer was decovered. were her eggs not used/

      The egg was not cancerous. Her cancer was discovered when they did a mammogram as a precautionary measure before going ahead with another IVF procedure.

    Even if I think that Bill is a pretty good guy, Giullianna is not only not pretty but she has a skinny boy body which is probably the reason why it's jacked up and can't get pregnant ....she should just eat something, gain a pound and stop being so superficial.

      Hey cindy, stop being so judgemental. Being skinny or not being pretty has nothing to do with pregnancy. I am skinny and i have 3 healthy kids. Giuliana did get pregnant but had a miscarriage. People you are the reason so many people have very low self esteem.

    Why didnt they just go adopt a big dog, from a shelter. I mean do you HAVE TO have a kid, to make a marriage work?

      Better yet, adopt a child who needs a family. Then, adopt a dog AND cat from the local shelter.

    OMG Maybe if she ATE something she could carry the kid herself-seriously.

      Seriously!! That's your argument? I mean- happy news is happy news. So tired of the haters! I just love how the advent of the net has allowed small, sad, hating people to spew stuff they never would have the guts to say to someones face. I guess you were never taught, " If you can't say anything nice................"

    I love both of them. I feel like i went thru everything with them, and you can be sure mine was one of the prayers sent on their behalf. I am so very happy they will have the baby they always wanted. No one should be deprived of that gift from God, and of all people them. They will be the best parents ever. I cannot wait to see the baby...big head and all. lol

      Actually, the gift is from the serrogate mother, not God. If God wanted her to have a baby, she would have gotten pregnant.

    You're right, Joey. Why do people have to be so nasty? Lots of people do care what they are doing, Rebbeca. You
    are just a bitter hater.

    It's wonderful that Bill and Giuliana have come through so much and are now going to have what they have wanted
    for so long, a baby. Congratulations and you will be great parents!

    These 2 have to be the most irritating couple i have seen in a long time. They are celebrity wanna be's! No one cares what they are doing i didn't even read the article because i don't care and no one else does either.

      No, you know what's irritating. Hater people like yourself who take joyful news for a couple who have been struggling to have a baby and make it ugly. You don't have to like them, nobody asked you. BUT, you need to take your hate elsewhere.

      Rebecca-So you NEVER read the article and you can't stand them, but, you just had to comment? Come on! Seriously get a life! Or better yet instead of commenting and wasting your precious time; perhaps take a grammar lesson or two. Just saying........... Arguments and Comments read better when they come across as from being from someone who is articulate. By the way, articulate means well spoken-just sayin'.
