Giada De Laurentiis Trying To Balance Career & Motherhood

Food Network host and celebrity chef, Giada De Laurentiis, opened up about balancing her life with 6-month-old daughter, Jade, and her career,

“[I am trying to find a balance] Between not giving up everything that I used to do, and not missing out on anything that my daughter does,” she said. “When you have children, everything changes. A lot of women know, you learn as you go through it.”

Giada says that her food is inspired by her lifestyle and since having baby Jade, her recipes are even shorter than before. Giada is set to host a new show on the Food Network called Giada at Home, and she also has a new book coming out entitled Giada’s Kitchen.

As for making her own baby food…Jade only began eating solids a week ago,

“So, it’ll be a couple years before I understand what she likes and doesn’t like, and she’s got to get some teeth, too. She’s missing teeth and hair. I’m hoping for both of those in the near future.”

Giada is married to fashion designer, Todd Thompson, and they reside in Los Angeles.
