Giada De Laurentiis has announced that she and her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson have split.
The 44-year-old Food Network star and fashion designer Todd have a six-year-old daughter Jade together.
Giada announced their plans to divorce on her website and her Facebook page, revealing they have been apart since summer.
The celebrity chef wrote, “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”.
She also tweeted to her over one million followers, writing, “Thanks so much for your support in this time of change…”
The couple tied the knot in May 2003.
