For many women finding out that you had failed to fall pregnant would be sad enough to hear but to learn that you had breast cancer must be earth-shatteringly devastating.
But instead of keeping her tragedy to herself Giuliana Rancic decided to share her lowest moments on TV in her reality show Giuliana And Bill.
Appearing on Lorraine this morning the E! presenter, who is now expecting a baby boy via surrogate, spoke out how she hit rock bottom before bouncing back to her happiest.
Big broad smile: E! presenter Giuliana Rancic was seen smiling as she left the ITV studios after talking on the Lorraine show about her battle with breast cancer and her baby
She explained: 'I was at the lowest - I'd just been diagnosed with breast cancer, I'd been trying to have a baby for four years and I think sometimes you have to get to your darkest point in life and then the brightest light just appears and that's when the good news come.'
And Giuliana,37, explained why she decided to share such an intimate moment with her fans: 'I didn't realise that I was going to have trouble having a baby and get breast cancer? I didn't realise I was going to have to face these things. And so when I did, I thought 'Why don't we share these stories because they can help people?'
'Just when you think it's never going to happen, it happens.'
Spot on in the style stakes: The 37-year-old presenter looked effortlessly chic as she emerged from the studios before heading to the Olympic village to cover the games
Expecting the pitter patter of tiny feet: Giuliana and husband Bill are set to welcome a baby boy via surrogate later this summer
On October 17, 2011 Giuliana revealed she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a lumpectomy followed by radiation before undergoing a double mastectomy.
At the time of diagnosis the TV presenter had been in her third cycle of IVF treatment.
Giuliana and Bill didn't give up on their dream to have a child and decided to have egg retrieval and they found a surrogate.
The pair are due to welcome their baby boy later this summer.
Giuliana was clearly in great spirits as she left the studios today beaming and waving to waiting photographers.
The American TV presenter is in London to cover the Olympic Games but is in danger of missing the birth of her son.
Speaking on the Today show earlier this month she said: 'We are going to be on standby.'
She continued: 'We think it’s going to be OK. The doctor assured us. He thinks maybe even early September the baby will come.'
