Giuliana Rancic: “I love when Duke poops, I love changing poopy diapers”

Despite it all, I still kind of like Giuliana Rancic. I think it helps that I stopped watching E! News and nowadays my only connection to Giuliana is through watching live red carpet events (where she is always preferable to Ryan Seacrest, IMO) and the occasional viewing of an episode of Fashion Police. The secret to liking Giuliana is to take her in small doses, I think. So you’ll forgive me if I don’t get all judgy about her new interview, in which she talks about how obsessed she is with her baby’s poop.

Since the arrival of her first child, Giuliana Rancic has been soaking up every second with her son — right down to Edward Duke‘s dirty diapers.

“This is so gross, but I love when he poops. They make these noises and I’m always like, ‘Bill, here he goes. Tape this, tape this!’ And he’s like, ‘Must we tape this?’” the new mom tells PEOPLE.

“It’s such a good feeling because it shows that he’s healthy and he’s regular and things are looking good.”

To that end, Rancic considers each diaper change a reason to celebrate. “I love changing poopy diapers. When I open a diaper and it’s poopy, I’m like, ‘Yes, score!’” she says.

The couple welcomed their baby boy via a gestational surrogate on Aug. 29 and were thrilled to each play a big part in the delivery process. “Being in the delivery room was pretty incredible,” she recalls.

“When he came out and we saw him for the first time it was just tears of joy all around. Bill had the very important job of cutting his umbilical cord — and banking his cord blood — and I got to hold him first to do skin to skin.”

After announcing they would be steering clear of unusual monikers, the couple blended both a family name with an all-time favorite when it came to naming their newborn.

“Edward is Bill’s late father’s name and Eduardo is my father’s name,” Rancic, 37, shares, adding her husband refers to their new little one as The Duke. “We’ve always loved the name Duke. We thought it was a really strong name, it means leader and I have a feeling he’s going to be the leader of our family!”

As the proud parents settle into life with Duke — who inherited Giuliana’s dimples and Bill’s nose and coloring, according to the new mama — the E! host admits not everything has been what she expected.

“The one thing I never thought I’d do is when I’m doing a live interview, looking at the camera and saying, ‘Hi Duke,’ and waving to my child,” she admits.

“Okay, people do that all the time on the red carpet when I’m interviewing them at the Emmys or at the Oscars and I’m always like, ‘Really?’ And now I’ve done it twice today!”

I think she just sounds like a new mom. At least she’s not going on and on about baby poop like Sarah Jessica Parker who once said, “I love the smell of diapers; I even like when they’re wet and you smell them all warm like a baked good.” See? THAT is gross. Giuliana talking about getting excited when the baby poops just seems normal to me.

    Nobody LOVES changing poopy diapers. This girl is such a moron.

  2. KellyinSeattle says:

    She looks really pretty in the black dress.
    I don’t think it’s too tacky to talk about your kids’ poopy diapers ; I used to call my son, “Sir-Poop-A-Lot”.

  3. Pau says:

    Their baby is adorable and Bill is hot. That’s all I got.

  4. Chatcat says:

    Um, even as a new Mom, I never felt that way! Typical celeb try too hard comment.

  5. Starlight says:

    She does not need to feel guilty that her baby came by different method. She does not need to over compensate that by saying she enjoys the poops. Her case is one of the reasons that she should have alternative method. It is justifiable.

  6. aims says:

    As a mother of three, i never got excited when they pooped.

  7. Jen says:

    No, as a mom, I don’t think that is a normal way of thinking. I never loved changing my son’s dirty diaper. I am beyond happy that my son has never had any health problems, but sh*t is nasty, plain and simple.

    She needs to gain weight. The end.

  8. snappyfish says:

    it is never okay to talk about poop in public, even if it is baby poop.


  9. pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    I’m just too happy for her to say anything negative about her, maybe what she said sounds weird or like an exaggeration, doesn’t matter, motherhood is different for everyone, she’s happy and that’s a good thing :)

  10. Naye in VA says:

    Yea that gets old REAL quick. Around the time it they start the baby food. Smell like nasty popcorn. Ahhh then you get those awesome ones where they somehow manage to poop up their back and it takes a team to get the clothes off and hose em off? Old.

  11. Becks says:

    She won’t be saying that when the baby starts to eat solid food! Yuck.

  12. the original bellaluna says:

    Good thing, since she’s going to have two in diapers soon!

    Once they get a bit older, it’s nasty. We called it “Garbage Butt” because that’s what it smelled like.

  13. twoblues says:

    After having twins and changing thousands of diapers one after the other, her comment actually made me laugh at loud. Loudly.

  14. Skipper says:

    I get the way she says its a sign that everything is working right just like when a baby cries. It all gets annoying eventually. I remember crying tears of joy to hear my son say mamma. Now I’m like Shut Up!

    Some of the above comments are way grosser than what she said.

  15. Kloops says:

    Aw. I’m giving her a pass. She’s not my favourite person, but she’s an overjoyed new mom and it is my understanding she had infertility issues. Eventually poopy diapers will lose their appeal. She should enjoy it now.

  16. Ms Kay says:

    So she’s all Betty Poop over her baby eh, say “Oohhh Poop-Poop-Pee-Poop! *snaps fingers* that’s a Poop de Poop!”…

  17. BELLE says:

    I love the smell of my babies diaper too… hehe. I heard it starts to smell bad when they start on formula though.

  18. mzthirtyeight says:

    I actually do quite like her and Bill, but “Duke poops” sounds so silly and absolutely disgusting! Hahaah

  19. Andrea says:

    The only reason she couldn’t get pregnant is because she refused to gain weight. I don’t feel sorry for her. Non rich people could not have afforded a gestational surrogate, women that have REAL fertility issues, not caused by being underweight.

  20. OutstandingWoldCitizen says:

    Two weird looking yet still slightly attractive people have a baby through a surrogate. I DON’T dislike GR and BR. I felt for her in re: to breast cancer & struggling to have a child. I am happy for them both. I like that they did not go with a ridiculous H’wood name for the baby.

    HOWEVER I would really like entertainment reporters to get back to reporting on REAL entertainers and not THEMSELVES. E! has become ridiculous in that way and very unwatchable for that reason.

  21. DD says:

    She’s never seen poop before.

  22. C says:

    I’m not bothered by that comment I think subconsciously she wants to be accepted by other mothers as being a ‘real mother’. I know it sounds stupid (because obviously she is a real mother) but just look at the comments about motherhood on the internet; no one gets more judgey than mothers, especially new mothers. I personally have even heard shade thrown at adoptive mothers for not having the same ‘experience’. I think she wants to be accepted into the fold so-to-speak which is understandable it just sounds…weird saying you like diapers.

  23. Nicolette says:

    I was never a fan of hers, but after watching her show and seeing her go through breast cancer and a double mastectomy after trying IVF, and having it result in a miscarriage, I have a whole lot of respect for her and how she conducted herself through it all. Becoming a Mom has been a long tough road for her, and I’m sure she had many doubts if it would ever happen at all. I’m thrilled for her and Bill, and The Duke is a cutie :)

  24. Str8Shooter says:

    This chick is a f*cking moron. I am sure she never comes NEAR a diaper, its likely her nanny.

    Oh and hey, Baby Stewie Face? No one gives a rat’s ass what you like!

  25. B says:

    I don’t know why parents and celebrity parents think that everyone wants to hear about this stuff. No one cares.

  26. Melissia says:

    She may have started out with infertility caused by unknown causeses, but she used a surrogate because she was recovering from her treatment from breast cancer. To say that she was infertile because she was thin is just ignorance about infertility. One in eight couples in the US is infertile, so that means that more than likely someone you know or love cannot have a family that they very much want.
