“After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage,” she began the statement. “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.”
Todd and Giada married in May 2003 and welcomed their only child, daughter Jade Marie De Laurentiis-Thompson, on March 29, 2008.
