Bill Rancic and wife Giuliana Rancic's ups and downs have been chronicled on their reality show Giuliana and Bill. From their struggles to have a baby to Giuliana's breast cancer battle, they have weathered a lion's share of storms. But now, as they prepare to welcome their first child together via surrogate, things are finally looking up again.

"We had a crazy year and we've tested our vows," Rancic told about their plans to have a vow renewal this summer. "Our outlook on life is different so we want to tweak our vows a little and have more fun with it. It's going to be a celebration of life and as I told her, it's the year of the Rancics."

A big part of 2012 will be their increasingly sympatico careers. They are hosting a summer reality show for NBC entitled Ready For Love, they opened a new restaurant, and he has partnered with Rogaine, becoming their spokesman and "growth coach."

"I had suffered from some hair loss and we pulled up old pictures versus some from the past two years and it was a night and day difference," he says. "One in four men suffer from hair loss and I wanted to let guys know they don't have to go through it since nine out of ten men who use Rogaine get their hair back." And what did his wife think of his new venture?

"She's the one who really noticed the difference," Rancic says. "Women get men to do things they wouldn't normally do. Eye cream and stuff like that. Getting married has been better for me. I don't know if most guys can say that but it's definitely enhanced my life."

On keeping their busy marriage strong.
"Although we travel a lot we try to limit it and we're starting to do more projects together. We're doing more work things together to limit our time apart. When we're apart, we're on the phone a lot and use FaceTime. Recently, both of our flights had Wi-Fi and we were FaceTiming each other from our seats on our separate planes. I was talking very quietly and the person next to me was watching a movie."

On knowing you're ready to settle down.
"Every guy has a different timetable. For me, it was very appropriate to get my career on track before I brought anyone else in my life. So I wasn't ready until I accomplished certain things in my career. Everyone has that time in their lives when they wake up and they know. That's what happened to me and I was very lucky to find the love of my life and my soul mate.
