Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is divorcing from fashion designer Todd Thompson, her husband of 11 years. The two married in May 2003. They have one daughter together, Jade Marie 6.
“After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage,” De Laurentiis,44, wrote on her Facebook page.
“Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family’s happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths.”
“Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything. We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change.”
Insights into Marriage
During a 2011 interview with Redbook, the chef shared some insights into her marriage and her fame, saying:
“I think it can be hard for any man to sometimes be upstaged by his wife. So when I’m home, I work very hard to be Todd’s wife and Jade’s mother. I have no problem going back to those traditional roles. I try to be Giada, the young girl that he met 20 years ago and fell in love with. All men want to be treated like kings in a relationship, and I think if women don’t indulge that sometimes, their men are likely to stray and look for someone who can give that to them. It’s simple. It’s not brain surgery.”
