Food Network's Giada De Laurentiis announced that she and her hubby, Todd Thompson, are cooking up a little somethin' somethin' of their own. The Today show contributor, revealed on the show, that she is expecting a baby girl and is due in April.
"When I found out I was pregnant I was in complete shock," Giada said. "I truly didn't believe it. I honestly thought, 'there has got to be a mistake.' " Always thinking in food terms, the Italian chef described seeing her little muffin's image grow, on the first few sonograms, from the size of a "lima bean" to a "lemon," adding, it "brought tears to my eyes." She added, "I just hope that I can be a good mom."
I'm a fan of Giada's -- and I make a lot of her recipes, though my mom always complains that Giada "smiles too much" -- whatever that means. I've heard other complaints about the foodie -- like people are offended by the amount of cleavage she shows while cooking -- which I think is ridiculous. I'm hoping her pregnant body goes the way of the voluptuous Halle Berry -- and has all those prudes choking on their gelato.
