Giada De Laurentiis, 37, and her husband, Todd Thompson, 44, welcomed a daughter named Jade Marie De Laurentiis Thompson on March 29.

Giada is a chef on the Food Network, a best-selling author, and a Today show contributor. She told Today that her pregnancy was a total surprise. "When I found out I was pregnant, I was in complete shock. Just shock," she said.

As for food cravings, the chef of "Everyday Italian" on the Food Network told Today cohosts that she craved pasta—naturally!

Giada told People magazine that when she watched the sonograms—first a "lima bean" then a "lemon"—"it brought tears to my eyes."

The baby is the first for her and husband of four years, Todd Thompson.

"I just hope that I can be a good mom," Giada has said.
