Giuliana opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about “savoring” moments with her “dream baby,” fighting over midnight feeds with Bill, and “enjoying being on maternity leave and spending as much time with Duke” before her return to work in November.

After a long road to parenthood, Bill and Giuliana Rancic are "loving every minute" with their 5-week-old son Duke. The proud new parents have teamed up with CBR (Cord Blood Registry) and "Healthy Futures" to talk about the importance of saving cord blood stem cells.

CBS: Congratulations on the arrival of baby Duke! What kind of baby is he? Are you getting any sleep?

Bill and I sometimes fight over who is going to get up with him because we both want to savor every single moment with Duke.

Giuliana & Bill: "Thank you! We are thrilled to have Duke in our lives and could not be happier parents. Life with Duke is great — he has been a dream baby! We are getting some sleep but we're also waking up every few hours to feed him and change him. He is on a pretty good schedule. He usually goes to sleep around 8:00 p.m. after his evening feeding and we are up about every four hours after that.

Bill and I sometimes fight over who is going to get up with him because we both want to savor every single moment with Duke. We're loving every minute of it!"

CBS: How have your lives changed since the arrival of baby Duke? Is parenthood everything you were hoping for? Tell us the greatest joys and biggest challenges of parenthood so far.

Giuliana & Bill: "Duke has changed our lives in every way imaginable. Once we laid eyes on him, nothing else in the world mattered. We want to spend every second with him — watching him, holding him. Our entire day revolves around him and everything feels complete now. It has been everything we could have hoped for and more.

The greatest joys are truly every moment. It's amazing to look at him and know that we created this little guy. So far, the biggest challenge has been leaving him for a few days for work. That was a lot harder than either Bill and I expected it to be. We knew it would be tough, just not the extent of how hard it would be."

CBS: We saw that you've already returned to work (at the recent Emmy Awards). Was it hard to leave baby Duke?

Bill and I are going to make it a priority to find a balance between work and our family.

Giuliana: "I did return to work for E!'s Live From The Red Carpet for the 64th Emmy Awards. It was incredibly difficult to leave Duke and I can empathize with working moms. The night before I left, I was actually sobbing into Bill's arms because I didn't want to leave him. Bill gave me the little push I needed to realize that it was okay to go back to work for a few days, because I would be back in no time.

As Duke gets older, Bill and I are going to make it a priority to find a balance between work and our family. I really miss my E! News and Fashion Police work family, but for now, I'm enjoying being on maternity leave and spending as much time with Duke as I can before returning to work in November."
