After their divorce settlement, the reality chef star remained under the radar for some time but now she's grabbing headlines with the news that she's back in the dating game!
Today, let's talk about her current relationship status and see what's going on, in the life of the beautiful chef.
Chef Giada De Laurentiis Is Rumored To Be Dating Someone!! Who Is Her New Boyfriend?
Giada is quite honest and blunt when it comes to her both personal or professional life. During her public break-up with then-husband Todd Thompson, she decided to reveal all the details regarding her divorce.
Well, she's found love all again!
In 2015, after her divorce, she started dating Shane Farley.
The couple met in 2013. Things started when Farley was hired to produce a talk show with Laurentiis.
"After I got divorced, I spent about a year and a half alone, not dating, just figuring things out. I had been with Jade’s dad for 25 years. I didn’t know what it meant to not be married. Once I got settled, [Shane and I] reconnected and I felt like a kid again."
The news about their relationship surfaced when both of them attended Nick Jonas's concert at Drai's Nightclub, in Cromwell, Las Vegas.
The pair was getting cozy and various onlookers revealed both of them were making out while the night went on. The observer stated,
"They were making out . . . in full view of everyone. They are super affectionate . . . all over each other."
Giada looked comfortable with him as she was feeding him different appetizers. Many of her close friends joined the lovebirds as they cuddled each other.
The pair is currently in a live-in relationship and looks like the duo will walk down the aisle soon.
Giada's daughter Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson is comfortable around Shane and she is getting the father's love that she rightfully deserves.
Laurentiis gushed about her boyfriend of nearly 3 years,
"Shane’s a lot of fun. He’s very spontaneous and loves to laugh. It’s one of my favorite things about our relationship. Giada is one of the most positive people I have ever met. She’s warm and absolutely beautiful—what you see on the outside is there on the inside as well."
We can see the adorable duo in some of her recent Instagram posts. The celebrity chef and her TV-producer beau are enjoying their togetherness.
Giada De Laurentiis And Her Former Husband Todd Thompson: See Their Divorce story
She married TV personality Todd Thompson on May 25th, 2003. The pair dated for a while before tying the knot in a content ceremony surrounded by their friends and family.
The pair welcomed their first and only child, an adorable daughter, Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson, on March 29, 2008.
Although, the claim was never proven but looks like one of the main reason for the divorce was her cheating scandal with co-stars and guests of her show Giada at Home.
The divorce settlement came as an expensive burden for the star as she had to pay Todd $2 million together with their $3.2 million Pacific Palisades home.
Though they are no more together, they have no bad blood for the sake of their daughter. They were together while celebrating Jade's 10th birthday at Benihana in March 2018.
Thompson is reportedly dating model Heather Lacombe at present.
