Giada's Got a Bun in the Oven!

Giada's Got a Bun in the Oven!

Looks like Giada De Laurentiis has got a bun in the oven, and by that I don't mean a delicious loaf of bread! According to People, the celebrity chef just announced that she is expecting her first baby in early April. Here's more:

"When I found out I was pregnant I was in complete shock," De Laurentiis, 37, admitted. "I truly didn't believe it. I honestly thought, 'there has got to be a mistake.' "

But as she watched the sonograms – first a "lima bean" then a "lemon" – the Everyday Italian chef said that when she could make out fingers and toes, it "brought tears to my eyes."

She is a regular contributor on the Today show and announced the news on this morning's show. This will be her first baby. Congrats Giada!

Update: Here's video of her announcement!

That clip was just plain weird. She didn't seem at all excited about motherhood. Some of her comments and body language in that clip were just confusing.

good for her, and i totally agree with you glowingmoon. my husband and i have been together for almost 11 years (married a little over 3) and thus far we've eluded the child question, but only because i went back to grad school. i have a feeling we'll start getting the questions soon enough after i graduate...especially since i've got cousins who are about the same age and who already have (or are expecting) kids. anyway, bit of a detour there, congrats to Giada!!! i think she'll make a fantastic mother. her baby girl will be well fed (from her, of course) and well dressed from dad (argh, i'm so jealous, i love anthropologie).

So that's why it's looked like she gained weight on her show. She's still tiny as a pin though. Yeesh. All that food infront of her and she's a stick! How is that possible?! Anywaysm congrats to her. :)

I'm with Amofoz - she's 37 years old?? Wow, she looks great. I appreciate Syako's post. My husband and I are in our 30's. We've been together for almost 13 years. We're child-free by choice. We've recieved a lot of heat for our decision. We've been called everything in the book - selfish, lazy, unwise, etc. It's been rough sometimes. I want to clarify that I'm not anti-children. My husband and I view having children as a matter of personal choice, that's all.
