In 2015, Giada De Laurentiis divorced Todd Thompson. The couple had been married since 2003 and has one child together. That same year, she announced she was in a relationship with The Rachel Ray Show producer Shane Farley.

When asked about his famous girlfriend by People, Farley gushed, “Giada is one of the most positive people I have ever met. She is warm and absolutely beautiful—what you see on the outside is there on the inside as well.” Alongside his talk show responsibilities, Farley also produced The Hungry Games.
