Giuliana Rancic unintentionally ruffled a few feathers earlier this year when she claimed in an interview that she puts her relationship with husband Bill before their baby — and now, she's opening up further on the subject.
In a new sit down with CupidsPulse.com, the 37-year-old said welcoming their first child together last summer has "brought them closer" in their marriage, and offers fellow new parents advice on the delicate balance between romance and parenthood.
“It’s so important to stay connected to your spouse as a new parent," she said. "Having a strong marriage is the greatest example you can set for your child.
"Bill and I are always checking in and trying to put each other first -- that’s what keeps us strong," she told the relationship website.
The E! beauty said of her son, “Baby Duke is so adorable, and we’re loving every minute of parenthood : Every ‘first’ he has is the greatest moment in the world.”
Meanwhile, Giuliana and Bill —who was the winner of the first season of The Apprentice — are set to host an upcoming series called Ready for Love, which she called "the most realistic dating reality show she's ever seen.”
“By using relationship experts, the compatibility between the bachelors and each girl is really tested,” the beauty said, adding the show is a rare opportunity for she and Bill to "spend some time together" as they're "always traveling and working apart."
Ready for Love debuts April 9 at 9/8c on NBC.
