Meet Giada De Laurentiis, the pretty Italian chef on Food TV. She is getting really big, not only because she is pregnant. See her photos, biography, and bikini video here.
She takes a pretty picture and has always been my favorite chef on Food TV.
Giada was quite surprised to find out that she is pregnant with a baby girl. Giada De Laurentiis’ baby is due in April 2008, which our sources tell us will be marked by a special episode of Food TV in which Giada will demonstrate how to cook baby formula the “Italian way.”
She announced the news on the Today Show on October 5th, 2007.
As a biography, Giada De Laurentiis was born in Rome Italy with her maiden name Giada Pamela De Laurentiis. She is the daughter of an Italian acting family. Her mother is actress Veronica De Laurentiis and her father is actor Alex De Benedetti.
After her parents divorced, she took moved to California and adopted her mother’s name, which is when she became Giada Laurentitis.
She graduated from UCLA in 1996 with a degree in anthropology, which I might note is the study of man. That is a skill that is sometimes conducive to pregnancy. As if she needed more credentials, Giada has written three books on cooking.
Her lucky husband’s name is Todd Thompson who she married in 2003. He is a fashion designer and a good match for her. Giada always looks great in bright pastel colors that are perfect for her skin tone and hair.
See pictures and video of Giada in a bikini.
