Giuliana Rancic: Husband is my exercise buddy

Giuliana Rancic says her spouse is her workout partner as well as her "husband and best friend".

The television host and Bill tied the knot in Anacapri, Italy, in September 2007.

In the latest issue of Women’s Running magazine, Giuliana has recalled one of the activities the pair did together after first meeting.

“Bill is not only my husband and best friend, he is my workout partner. We love running together,” she said. “One of our first dates, we ran six miles on the lakefront of Lake Michigan.”

Giuliana beat breast cancer after undergoing a double mastectomy in December 2011. The star insists running was the thing that made her feel "normal" again after a traumatic few months.

“I had a very tough year, I went through cancer, and running was my way to feel like I am back. When I was finally able to run three months after my surgery, it felt great. It said to me that I am back and able to resume my normal life. It’s the 45 minutes or hour in my day when I can be in my head, think things through. There’s no phone or anything; it’s escapism for me," she said.

“It just changed my attitude toward exercise. Sometimes big things have to happen in life to make you appreciate the little things.”

The E! News hostess and Bill welcomed their first son Edward Duke Rancic via surrogate in Denver last August.

Giuliana has far less time to exercise now she's a mother, but always finds a way.

"Having a baby makes working out a little tougher, but I am able to find time when he is napping," she smiled.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
