Giada de Laurentiis has officially moved on from her divorce!
In a new interview, the Food Network star opened up about about her 2014 split from Todd Thompson — and revealed she's now found happiness with a new boyfriend!
"Life is fun and great and I have so much fun with my [seven-year-old] daughter [Jade] and I have someone new!" she told E! News. The 45-year-old chef has been dating TV producer Shane Farley since November 2015.

However, getting to this happy place after ending an 11-year marriage wasn't exactly easy for the mom-of-one. "I had a rough year and a half, no question," Giada explained. "But I think that all of us go through stuff. I checked out for a little bit. I tried to stay under the radar to protect my family and my daughter, mostly. But now I feel like I've turned the corner."
"I think that the pain was so raw for so long that I just felt like I couldn't [even talk about it]. I think that everybody takes their time to get over whatever it is they need to get over," she continued. "Life is a big adventure and yes, there are curveballs that come your way. Take a minute. Breathe deeply. But if you're healthy, you can get through anything in this life. You just can."
