Giuliana Rancic is a first-time mother after a surrogate gave birth to her child.

The E! News host and her husband Bill's new son, called Edward, was delivered on Wednesday night.

In a post on his Twitter.com page early on Thursday, Bill writes, "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!"

The couple turned to surrogacy after Rancic's fertility issues meant she struggled to go full-term with a pregnancy, and she miscarried a child in 2010.

Her battle to become a mom hit another setback last year when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which she beat after undergoing a successful double mastectomy.
