Todd Thompson: Early Life and Family

Todd’s life is unknown because he has chosen not to divulge details about his childhood, family, and schooling, as well as how he decided to pursue a career in the fashion industry. It is known that he grew up with a brother, who was mostly raised by their mother.

The Todd Thompsons of Dating (Relationship)

Thompson married De Laurentiis in 2003, and they had their only child, Jade, five years later, named after her mother – the name Giada means Jade in English. She has no plans to have any more children because she wants to focus more on her job. She considers her show, her child, and her ex-husband during their marriage to be her children. However, in 2014, she stated that she and Todd had split, with the couple deciding to discontinue their marriage. They divorced the next year, and she has been dating television producer Shane Farley since then.

Thompson, on the other hand, has stepped back from the limelight. Giada was accused of cheating on him with musician John Mayer in the 2010s, thus the two had a history of squabbles. The incident was considered to be particularly humiliating for Thompson.

Giada De Laurentiis was his ex-wife

Giada is the eldest child of actress Veronica De Laurentiis and was born in Rome, Italy. She spent a lot of time as a child at her grandfather’s restaurant DDL Food show and in the home kitchen, thus fostering her love for food. Following her parent’s divorce, she adopted her mother’s surname and relocated to Southern California. Todd Thompson attended Marymount High School and then went on to the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she earned a degree in social anthropology.

She then traveled to Paris to train at Le Cordon Bleu to become a pastry chef, before returning to the United States and working at many restaurants, most notably Wolfgang Puck’s Spago. She subsequently worked on a feature for “Food & Wine” magazine in 2002, which drew the attention of the Food Network, who recruited her as a food stylist. This finally led to her first show on the network, “Everyday Italian,” which she found unsettling because she never felt she could be like her family working in front of the camera.

Todd Thompson’s net worth is unknown. According to sources, she has a net worth of more than $8 million as of mid-2019, achieved from success in the fashion sector. He may have also benefited financially from her relationship with, and divorce procedures with, Giada De Laurentiis, who has a net worth of more than $20 million

Professional Career

After finishing his education, he went on to work as a fashion designer for various well-known brands and companies.

One of his most noteworthy appointments was as a designer for Anthropologie, an American clothing shop with over 200 outlets globally. Apart from clothing, they also sell jewelry, intimates, gifts, décor, home furnishings, and beauty goods. It is one of the URBN brands, along with Free People, BHLDN, and Urban Outfitters. He also got considerable television notoriety courtesy of his ex-wife, since he was featured on her show “Giada at Home” multiple times.

De Laurentiis began anchoring the show “Behind the Bash” in 2006, which explores the food at large events such as the Grammy Awards. She then hosted “Giada’s Weekend Getaways,” in which she traveled to a highlighted location in the United States to visit her favorite culinary destination. She also competed on the TV show “Iron Chef America,” losing to Rachael Ray and Mario Batali, but went on to become a presenter at the inaugural “Food Network Awards,” which led to the special “Giada in Paradise.”

During the third season of ‘The Next Food Network Star,’ she also served as a guest judge. She created her first restaurant, GIADA, inside The Cromwell in Las Vegas in 2014. True to her heritage and specialties, the restaurant serves Italian cuisine with a Californian twist. In 2018, she established Pronto by Giada, a second restaurant in Caesars Palace. In addition, she opened GDL Italian by Giada in Baltimore, Maryland.

She has also done voice-over work for projects such as “Pixie Hollow Bake Off,” “Scooby-Doo! And the Gourmet Ghost,” and “Handy Manny.”
