Giuliana Rancic says her baby boy is ''a dream''.

The E! News anchor and her husband Bill Rancic welcomed their first child, Edward Duke Rancic, into the world via gestational surrogate on Wednesday (29.08.12) in Denver, Colorado, and the brunette beauty has taken to her twitter account to reveal the happy couple couldn't love the little one ''anymore'' than they already do.

She tweeted: ''It's true what they say (and what u all told us).... @BillRancic and I couldn't love little Duke anymore than we do. He's a dream.... (sic)''

Bill helped coach their surrogate mother in the delivery room during her four-hour labour on Wednesday and he cut the baby's chord, while Giuliana was the first to hold Edward.

Bill broke the news on twitter following the baby's birth, and he admitted the pair ''feel blessed beyond words'' to be parents.

He wrote: ''The 'Duke' has landed! Edward Duke Rancic was welcomed into the world last night at 7lbs 4oz. G & I feel blessed beyond words...We did it!( sic)''

The couple - who tied the knot in September 2007 - struggled to conceive for four years and during Giuliana's third attempt to get pregnant through IVF her doctor discovered she had breast cancer. But she is now cancer-free following a double mastectomy.
