Watch Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s Impossibly Adorable First Meeting

Bill says that they met for dinner at Malibu and their first date was dinner. According to Bill, they had been planning for the next three-four months. This was our first date. Then, we had our phones out. We were thinking, “In July I gotta get here, maybe you could meet me,” and that was just two hours into our first date. This was absolutely crazy.

When the Italian-born, Washington, D.C.-raised host did finally roll up in his hometown of Chicago, “I rolled out the red carpet,” Bill said on Today.

He remembered that he had a Cubs game and Giordano’s pizza waiting for her at the hotel. “I cooked her dinner. It was great fun. All my friends were there; it was an amazing three days. That was Memorial Day weekend eight years ago. And that was the end of my dating life. It was the end for my relationship world.
