Giuliana Rancic admits that even though everything Joan Rivers says is a joke, there are some things she has learnt from her.

The TV presenter co-hosts the E! show Fashion Police with the outspoken and controversial American star.

Giuliana became a mother through a surrogate last year and shared the words of wisdom Joan has given her on raising a child.

"Oh God, everything she says is a joke, but she has [shared words of wisdom with me] in a sense that she and [her daughter] Melissa are so close," she explained to the Huffington Post. "Joan and Melissa don’t do anything apart and I love that, they have an incredible bond. I’ve just learned by observing the two of them in their relationship and Melissa is an executive producer on Fashion Police and she’s on set every week and she’s right there behind the cameras with her headset and she’s running the show there on the floor, on stage. And it’s funny to see anything Melissa says Joan trusts and it’s incredible, and that’s obviously a bond that Joan doesn’t have with anyone. It’s really nice to see them and their relationship. It’s a great example of how anyone would hope to have a relationship with their child."

The 38-year-old is married to Bill Rancic, who was the winner of the first US series of The Apprentice.

Her husband has turned into a "baby hog" since the birth of their son Edward Duke.

"He really is, that’s just not stopped. We’re in New York this week and Bill likes to push the stroller in the city and he likes to always hold him and I just look like the lazy wife who doesn’t want to do anything. I just walk alongside Bill and the baby kind of going, 'OK if anyone needs me, I’ll be over here.' But yes, he’s definitely a baby hog," she joked. "But you could call your husband worse things than a baby hog. At the end of the day, ultimately, it’s a blessing and it’s great that Bill is so nurturing and loving and wants to be with the baby all the time."
