After three months of a blissful maternity leave with her newborn son Duke, E! News host Giuliana Rancic is returning to work.

“I could give you the Hollywood answer and just say it’s been great going back to work,” she tells Life & Style. “But the real answer is, it’s hard. What’s important now is different from what was important a few months ago.”

“The other morning, I was having the best time with Duke, and he was making faces that I had never seen before, and he was being so cute. Then I looked at the clock and I had to go to work,” the new mom, 37, adds. “So I keep thinking, am I going to miss something?”

To help calm her nerves, doting hubby Bill Rancic regularly sends smartphone videos of their son throughout the day. “It’s one thing to look at pictures,” she says. “But when I see video, I feel like I’m with him.”

Bill, 41, says he’s never seen this side of Giuliana before. “It’s remarkable to see how the baby has changed her,” he shares. “Just the devotion the little guy evoked and the motherly instincts that kicked in.”

But the self-professed workaholic says she’ll work hard at balancing work and family life.

“I’ll make it work,” she says. “I’m going to make sure I don’t sacrifice anything.”
