Giuliana Rancic: Infertility Has Nothing To Do With Weight

Giuliana Rancic is still struggling with infertility, and she says it has nothing to do with her weight, pointing to other skinny celebs who have managed to conceive. She tells Radaronline.com:

“Look at Kelly Ripa! She’s half my size and has no body fat and has kids.

Giselle (Bundchen) is a supermodel, and I’ve pinched her in real life just to see if she has body fat — zero body fat! Look at Victoria Beckham, she’s on her fourth child.
I personally believe that Rancic does have some body issues, I feel that she is obsessed with being thin. In fact one of the reasons I can’t watch her red carpet coverage is because every actress that she speaks to she mentions how “Thin” and “Great” they look, she asks them how the stay that way? and what is their work out? Now that may not seem so strange, but it is EVERY single woman she seems covetous. When she was on the View years ago at the start of her reality series they queried her on her weight and her inability to get pregnant, and she got livid. Later she did put on weight and indeed GOT pregnant (Which kind of proves that it was an issue) and perhaps her body could not sustain the pregnancy (there are many reasons why miscarriag­es happen- whatever they may be– it is heart breaking). Though she is a petite woman her thinness looks effortful- and she look much healthier when she gained the 7lbs. (though I have no “proof”) Courtney Cox was painfully thin at the end of friends and suffered several miscarriag­es – she put on weight and conceived. Of course every case is different and individual­, but if you want to have a child and be a mother, shouldn’t weight be the least of your worries? This is one of the reasons I feel she might have some issues.

One thought on “Giuliana Rancic: Infertility Has Nothing To Do With Weight”

  1. Couldn’t agree more. I speak as someone who also failed for years to conceive until she gained a little weight. I used the same excuse as Giuliana — that skinny celebrities such as Nicole Ritchie managed to conceive, so my weight couldn’t by the problem. Who knows how super skinny celebs get pregnant; the fact is that the body needs a certain level of body fat in order to maintain a pregnancy. The ideal BMI for conception is around 20. Hers is probably around 17. Also, sometimes it’s a combination of factors — weight, diet and exercise — and not any one factor on its own that prevents conception. I wish her all the best and hope that she manages to conceive.
