Earlier in the week Giuliana wrote on Twitter: “Great hike on Vail Mountain, amazing couples massage... Now, this is how to spend a babymoon!!! #heaven (sic)”.
Bill and Giuliana also enjoyed a fly-fishing trip and indulged in an 'epic' strawberry shortcake desert at Montana Ted's restaurant
Earlier this month the couple revealed that they will be decamping across the country to join their surrogate in Denver in the run-up to the big day.
“We are officially on baby watch as of today,” reality star Bill told TooFab earlier this month.
Bill and his E! News host wife struggled to conceive naturally, undergoing three failed cycles of IVF.
Then last year during her treatment Giuliana was diagnosed with breast cancer, putting their dreams of a family on hold.
She underwent a lumpectomy followed by radiation before undergoing a double mastectomy.
Following her recovery the couple decided to use a surrogate to try for a baby, and were thrilled when their attempt ended in a pregnancy.
