Food Network star Giada De Laurentiis gives birth to baby girl

By Christopher Rocchio, 03/31/2008 

Giada De Laurentiis will be trading in her signature Italian dishes for bottles and baby food.

The Food Network chef and regular The Today Show contributor and her husband Todd Thompson welcomed their first child together on Saturday in Los Angeles, People reported.

"De Laurentiis and husband Todd Thompson welcomed their first child, a healthy baby girl," her representative told People. "Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson weighed in at 5lbs, 13oz."

The 37-year-old celebrity chef revealed she was pregnant during a The Today Show broadcast last November.

"When I found out I was pregnant, I was in complete shock, just shock," said De Laurentiis at the time.  "Todd and I looked at each other and we both said 'How is this possible?'  Well we all know how it's possible -- I just really truly didn't believe it.  I honestly thought, 'There has got to be a mistake.'"

The Italy native serves as the host of Food Network's Everyday Italian, Behind the Bash, Giada's Weekend Getaways and Giada in Paradise programs, and also competed in an episode of the network's Iron Chef America reality competition series. 

In addition, she's penned "Everyday Italian: 125 Simple and Delicious Recipes;" "Giada's Family Dinners;" and "Everyday Pasta."

De Laurentiis and Thompson, a 44-year-old clothing designer, wed in 2003.
