New parents Giuliana and Bill Rancic are ecstatic over the arrival of their baby boy, Edward Duke.

“It’s true what they say (and what u all told us)… Bill Rancic and I couldn’t love little Duke anymore than we do,” Giuliana, 37, Tweeted on Friday. “He’s a dream….”

The new reality TV parents, who welcomed their baby boy on Wednesday via a gestational carrier, returned to their Chicago home on Friday on board a private plane loaned by one of Bill’s pals, according to E!.

Bill, 41, was hesitant to fly with their new bundle of joy and initially planned to charter a bus to bring him home, but agreed to fly after the couple’s doctor said air travel would be safer, E! reported.

Giuliana and Bill – who will celebrate their 5-year wedding anniversary on Saturday – were on hand to witness the birth of little Edward in Denver on Wednesday evening.

The baby weighed in at 7 pounds and 4 ounces.
