During an interview with NBC’s Today show host Anne Curry on Monday morning, Rancic admitted she is now battling with breast cancer.

“Through my attempt to get pregnant for the third time, we sadly found out that I have early stages of breast cancer,” Rancic told Curry on the morning TV show.

“It’s been a shock. A lot of people have been asking, we saw that you went and got IVF, are you pregnant? But sadly, we’ve had to put that off.” The 37-year old host added.

“I wasn’t prepared to get a mammogram until I was 40 years old, like I’d been told. I never in my wildest dreams expected anything to be wrong.” Giuliana explains further, who thanked his husband Bill Rancic for being very supportive.

Rancic, also a co-host of Style Network, also said she thanked her fertility doctor who pushed her for the mammogram that eventually led to the findings; and will go under treatment in the coming weeks.

Viewers of their popular reality show “Giuliana & Bill” have watched the couple go through numerous trials and of trying to have a baby. The show is now on its fourth season that began airing last July 18.

Apparently, Rancic‘s revelation came in just days before she and husband Bill visited a Colorado fertility center, with Giuliana saying that her family has no history of having breast cancer.

Coincidentally, Giuliana Rancic last month supported the non-profit Bright Pink to bust breast cancer myths on the street, as her support for this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
