Well here’s another one to add to the celebrity divorce list. One more day left, let’s see if we get another one.
The Food Network star Giada de Laurentiis and her fashion designer husband, Todd Thompson, have split up after 11 years of marriage. De Laurentiis revealed on Facebook Monday evening (December 29th) that they did not arrive at that decision in haste.
“After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage,” she wrote. “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.”
Thompson and De Laurentiis have a 6-year-old daughter, Jade Marie De Laurentiis-Thompson, together. “Todd and I share a beautiful daughter together,” the celebrity cook continued, “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.”
There was no word on whether they had yet filed for divorce. The duo married on May 25, 2003.
Another one bites the dust…
