  • Marriage over motherhood? Yes, says Giuliana Rancic, who welcomed baby boy Edward Duke via surrogate last summer with her husband, Bill Rancic.

    Speaking to Us Weekly on Feb. 26 at a Toast to Red Carpet Style event hosted by Crystal Light and the "E! News" host, Rancic shared the secret to their happy marriage: She and her husband make their relationship a priority, even when there's a "cutest baby ever" in their life.

    "We're husband and wife, but we're also best friends, and it's funny because a lot of people, when they have kids, they put the baby first, and the marriage second," says the 37-year-old breast cancer survivor. "That works for some people. For us, I find, we put our marriage first and our child second, because the best thing we can do for him is have a strong marriage."

    "So we're even stronger than we ever were before and even imagined we could be," continues Rancic, who recently reported from the Oscar red carpet for E!. "Like, Oscar morning, Duke wakes up, like, twice during the night because he's so hungry and wants to eat every four hours. So Bill, like, no question was like, 'I got it. Tonight you get a good night's sleep.' And when Bill has shoots the next day or meetings the next day, I do it. It's kind of amazing. I always say to Bill, 'You were my first baby,' because he was! He was my first love and my first baby, and Duke is my second baby."
