Giuliana Regrets Chasing Career Over Chasing Guys

Though Giuliana Rancic, 37, has an enviable career as an E! News co-anchor, Fashion Police judge and has her own Style Network show Giuliana & Bill, she admits in a new interview with Health magazine that she regrets working nonstop on her career over prioritizing starting a family.
Giuliana famously struggled with infertility for four years before getting diagnosed with breast cancer. She then enlisted a gestational surrogate, who gave birth to her and husband Bill Rancic's son Edward Duke on August 29.
"I always say how I chased my career instead of chasing guys. And everybody was patting me on the back. No one ever told me, 'Oh, by the way, your eggs change when you reach a certain age,'" she says about her struggle to conceive. "I didn't think 35 was old! So when the doctor said, 'It's not as easy as you thought it would be,' it was a real blow. Because I felt so young. I mean, this is a girl who was running six miles a day, and eating healthy, so how can you tell me that I'm not healthy in that department?"
She also admits to feeling angry when watching the pregnant teens on MTV's controversial hit 16 and Pregnant.
"I would go, 'I'm a good person, and I could give someone the greatest life of all, but yet I can't get pregnant.' And then you watch these TV shows, 16 and Pregnant, and these girls who want nothing to do with their babies are pregnant. And you're going, what? None of that made sense to me," she says candidly.
But clearly, everything worked out for Giuliana who says she is currently "in baby heaven" with her son.
"I love when I feed him in the middle of the night," she says. "Those moments are incredible, when it's so quiet and there’s just a little bit of a light on, just looking at his little face."
