Giada De Laurentiis and her husband of five years, Todd Thompson, welcomed a baby girl yesterday in Los Angeles. Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson arrived at 4:38 PM ET, and weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces. More photos below.

This is the first child for Giada, 37, and her husband Todd, 44. She was shocked when she found out she was pregnant, and told PEOPLE:

“When I found out I was pregnant I was in complete shock. I truly didn’t believe it. I honestly thought, ‘There has got to be a mistake.’ “

One of Giada’s hardest things she had to get used to while pregnant was combating fatigue. The Food Network star and Today Show contributor was amazed at how fast her energy level dipped in the afternoons. At the time, she said:

“I feel awesome in the morning, but around four or five o’clock my energy crumbles.�?

Giada is the granddaughter of film producer Dino De Laurentiis and star of her own Food Network show, Everyday Italian, and penned a cookbook of the same name. She would write two other cookbooks, Giada’s Family Dinners and Everyday Pasta (which released last April).

    Well, obviously this piccture was taken purposly, because usually when having a child, you don’t have makeup on and you don’t look all dolled up. But I have to say, I think she is soooooo beatiful. I am so happy for her! I love her show, and every time she starts to cook, I get hungry.

    I’m surprised the baby’s last name is De Laurentiis and not the father’s last name, Thompson!
    I agree that the picture is fake, no one has perfect make up on after labor!

    Hi Giada and Todd,

    I finally saw a picture of your baby girl. She is so beautiful. You will have the time of your life with her. I know because my husband and I had 2 girls about 19 months apart. They are in college now and were and are so much fun. I love watching your show and all your Italian recipes. I’m a full-blooded Italian too and I envy the fact that you speak Italian. My parents werent born in Italy but their parents were. My parents spoke fluent Italian but never taught us. I never could figure that one out. I did take an Italian class though. But anyway Congratulations to the both of you.
