Sad news for celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis. Last night (Dec. 29), the star announced that she and her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson, are divorcing.
Giada shared the news via a lengthy post on her Facebook page. The statement reads:
After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage. 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.
