Giada De Laurentiis could likely use some comfort food right now.

Fortunately, the Food Network star has recipes for just about any meal imaginable. The chef announced Monday that she and Todd Thompson are calling it quits after 11 years of marriage, writing, “After an amicable separation since July, Todd and I have decided to end our marriage. 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 I share a beautiful daughter [Jade Marie Thompson] and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything,” the Daytime Emmy Award winner and New York Times best-selling cookbook author continued. “We are so thankful for our friends and family, and really appreciate the support in this time of change.”
