Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is on the mend after undergoing “minor” sinus surgery. The former Food Network star, known for her culinary expertise and engaging personality, shared an update with her fans on Instagram on Friday, May 17. In her post, she expressed gratitude and relief, stating, “Blissful recovery ❤️‍🩹 Had a minor sinus surgery this morning — all is well, but going to spend the weekend right here recovering with the fam. Just missing Jadey!”

The accompanying photo featured Giada De Laurentiis smiling and relaxing in bed, surrounded by her boyfriend, Shane Farley, and their beloved pets. Her joyful expression indicated that the surgery went smoothly, and she appeared to be in good spirits despite the medical procedure.

Fans quickly responded with an outpouring of well-wishes and supportive comments. “Feel better really soon! Sending well wishes,” wrote one follower, while another added, “I wish you a speedy recovery ❤️‍🩹 hope you feel better soon 💐.” The warmth and positivity from her fan base were evident, showcasing the strong connection De Laurentiis has cultivated with her audience over the years.


De Laurentiis has often spoken about the importance of her pets in her life. In a previous interview with PEOPLE in September 2022, she described her home as a “pets-on-the-couch” kind of household. “I’ve had many people come over and be like, ‘Your dogs are allowed to sleep on the couch?’ That kind of time for us is bonding time … I just like it,” she shared. It’s clear that her furry friends play a significant role in her comfort and recovery process.

The news of her surgery came shortly after De Laurentiis shared a special family milestone on social media. Her daughter Jade, 16, recently attended prom, and De Laurentiis posted a heartfelt tribute to the moment. The Instagram photo showed Jade in a stunning strapless white lace minidress paired with sparkly heels. “Sending Jadey off to prom last night 😭🥰,” De Laurentiis wrote, capturing the bittersweet emotions of watching her daughter grow up.


Jade, De Laurentiis’ only child with ex-husband Todd Thompson, also celebrated her sweet 16th birthday in March. The proud mother shared photos from the birthday celebration in Hawaii, expressing her love and admiration for her daughter. “Today is Jadey’s sweet 16– where does the time go? She is the most kind, beautiful, caring, smart young lady and I’m so lucky to call her mine 💜,” De Laurentiis captioned the post.

As Giada De Laurentiis takes time to recuperate from her sinus surgery, she remains surrounded by loved ones, including her daughter, boyfriend, and pets. Her fans continue to send their support, eager to see her return to her vibrant self soon.
