Giuliana and Bill Rancic’s surrogate has miscarried their child.

The news will no doubt come as a shock to fans — as it did the couple — because the current season of their reality show is all about their efforts at having a second child.

“It’s something that we didn’t see coming,” Bill tells People. “We were devastated.”

The Rancics welcomed son Duke via their surrogate, Delphine, in 2012.

She was nine weeks pregnant with their second child when the miscarriage recently occurred.

“Delphine is amazing. We hit the surrogate lottery when we met her. Obviously this was no fault of hers,” says Bill.

He goes on, “It’s a double sadness because we didn’t want her to feel bad. And Giuliana was rather distraught at first, but she’s tough. In times like this we rely on our faith. Once the tears went away we started to look towards the future.”

And the couple is still determined to expand their family.

Bill tells the magazine, “We’re fighters. Hopefully we’re going to have good news and Delphine will be on board one more time.”

“We’ve had to battle it out and that’s something that we’re going to continue to do,” he says.

Giuliana herself previously suffered a miscarriage in 2010.
