Giada De Laurentiis has lost her appetite for marriage. On Dec. 30, the celebrity chef announced that she is getting a divorce from her husband of 11 years, Todd Thompson.

Giada De Laurentiis, 44, and her husband, Todd Thompson, 51, have called it quits. The Food Network star tied the knot to the fashion designer back in 2003, and the two have a 6-year-old daughter, Jade Marie De Laurentiis-Thompson. So sad!

“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,” wrote Giada on her Facebook page.

In her public message, the chef personality also added, “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.”
