When it came to choosing a name for her first born son Edward Duke, mama and reality television star Giuliana Rancic wanted to name him after his proud papa Bill Rancic. However, her hubby wasn‚Äôt as keen on the idea as she was.
‚ÄúI‚Äôve never been a fan of the ‚Äėjunior.‚Äô I want to give him his own identity,‚ÄĚ the 41-year-old father reasons in a clip from the November 13th episode of Giuliana & Bill ‚ÄĒ which was filmed just prior to Duke‚Äôs August 2012 arrival. ‚ÄúIf he wants to name his son after me, then I‚Äôve earned it.‚ÄĚ
Although the couple considered names such as Luke and Zach, they ended up agreeing on a name that paid tribute to their own fathers.
‚ÄúOur fathers are great men ‚Äď your dad is Edward and mine‚Äôs Eduardo. We could name him Edward,‚ÄĚ Giuliana comments in the preview clip as the couple finally settle on what to name their son.
Since his arrival, the couple have taken to calling him Duke ‚ÄĒ his middle name ‚ÄĒ which they chose because it means leader.
After they decide on the name, Giuliana reveals that she most looks forward to having a constant reminder of the greatest man in her life -¬† her hubby of five years.
‚ÄúI want to look at him and see you. I want him to be a ‚Äėmini Bill,‚Äô‚ÄĚ she says on Tuesday‚Äôs Giuliana & Bill. ‚ÄúHonestly, I want him to be just like you.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúHe‚Äôll be better!‚ÄĚ replies Bill.
Giuliana & Bill airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. (EST) on STYLE.
