Giuliana and Bill Rancic's Surrogate Revealed, Plus, the Debate Over Who Cut the Cord!

Time to put a name and face to a very special gestational carrier.

Giuliana and Bill Rancic will be introducing the world to the woman who gave birth to the couple's son, Edward Duke, on the season premiere of Giuliana and Bill, airing Oct. 2 on Style.

Meet Delphine!

Fashion Police's top cop, Joan Rivers, raved how "adorable" little Edward Duke is

We've got a sneak peek of Delphine and the expectant parents checking out a tricked-out birthing suite (there's a Jacuzzi!) at the Denver hospital where Edward was ultimately born on Aug. 30.

And while it was already apparent who'd be the one in bed going through labor, Giuliana and Bill still had a few questions about what came next.

"You get the skin-to-skin and you get the cord-cutting," Bill said in mock-disbelief after Giulana called dibs on holding the baby first (traditionally the mother's job, the hospital expert confirmed) and cutting the umbilical cord.

But after Bill had confirmed that cutting the cord usually is reserved for dad, Giuliana was perfectly happy to let him do his thing.

"Having a baby, being a mom, is truly the greatest thing I've ever done in my life," Giuliana told E! News just today.

"He either eats, he sleeps or he's pooping," Bill noted, but overall their son is a pretty "cool customer."

Giuliana will be taking her first trip since Edward's birth this Thursday for Do It for the Girls! day, a P&G GIVEHope and SheSpeaks event to advocate for the importance of early detection when it comes to breast cancer.

Talking about the 180 her life has done since being diagnosed with cancer last year up until this point, Giuliana said staying positive was key.

"I've learned," she said, "that, even when you're no the ground crying and you feel the world is over, if you just stay strong and just stay positive, you can go from your darkest point to your best point, in what seems like that."

Tune in to the season premiere of Giuliana & Bill Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on Style and catch the couple on E! News at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
