There’s a reason why so many people love this vibrant couple: They’re easy to relate to (despite their celebrity status). The working parents share the joys and challenges of life — including raising their son Duke — on their eponymous Style Network show, which airs July 16 at 8/7c. And they weren’t shy when we asked them which baby items they couldn’t live without (they’re all on Gilt.com today!). We played a little game of Mad Libs with the dynamic duo — see what’s on their radar right now.
Describe each other in three words:
Giuliana about Bill: Strong, loyal, loving
Bill about Giuliana: Strong, beautiful, funny
Coolest part about having your own show: We love that we’re able to reach many, many people to share our story that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to. It’s the best feeling in the world when someone comes up to us and thanks us for sharing certain aspects of our lives that are hard to talk about. Hopefully we have been able to touch many lives by sharing our struggles with infertility and my breast cancer diagnosis.
Favorite date-night spot: Nobu Malibu
Favorite fashion designer:
The cutest outfit Duke owns: A custom three-piece suit that my father, Eduardo DePandi, made for him. He is an expert tailor and we will definitely keep that suit forever!
Favorite activity to do with Duke: Take him to the park! He loves to go on the swings.
Biggest parenting challenge: Balancing work and home life
The milestone you’re most excited for: Duke’s first steps! We have dreamed of that moment for so long, and he’s getting so close.
Best advice for new parents: It’s okay to feel a little stressed at times. Don’t let it get in the way of enjoying the precious little day-to-day things with your new baby.
