Giada De Laurentiis is known for her delicious Italian fare, but she found her secret ingredient to happiness just two and a half years ago: her boyfriend, Shane Farley.
The Giada at Home star opened up about falling in love again after parting ways with her ex-husband, Todd Thompson, in 2014 and said she feels “like a kid again” thanks to her second chance at romance.
“Shane’s a lot of fun. He’s very spontaneous and loves to laugh. It’s one of my favorite things about our relationship,” the TV chef told People.
The Food Network star and mother of a 9-year-old girl, Jade, went on to share that taking time to herself after her divorce helped her move on, saying, “After I got divorced, I spent about a year and a half alone, not dating, just figuring things out. I had been with Jade’s dad for 25 years. I didn’t know what it meant to not be married.” De Laurentiis continued, “Once I got settled, [Shane and I] reconnected and I felt like a kid again.”
Now that’s amore.
