An aspect of her family life affected Giada De Laurentiis deeply.
Why Giada De Laurentiis Changed Her Last Name
Celebrity chef and TV personality Giada De Laurentiis is a popular name in the culinary space. The chef had a tough time as a child when her family decided to shift base to the U.S. from Italy. She didn't know English and that proved to be a difficult thing to overcome as a 7-year-old who just wanted to fit in. There was another aspect of her family life that affected her deeply: her relationship with her parents — something that would eventually lead her to change her name.
