Giada De Laurentus & Her New Pregnancy Cravings For Steak

Giada De Laurentus

Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis is experiencing new cravings as her pregnancy progresses.

The mother-to-be, who is due to deliver a baby girl on April 3rd, has felt new cravings since becoming pregnant. “I always want steak – lots of steak,” she told People magazine at DeVito’s South Beach restaurant in Miami on Saturday night during the South Beach Wine and Food Festival.

“I used to crave sweets before I got pregnant. You know, chocolate, cookies, cake. I’ve normally got a really big sweet tooth, but not now this baby just wants meat,” she said.

With her feet propped up on the lap of husband Todd Thompson, Giada, 37, also chatted with restaurant owner Danny DeVito and sister celebrity chef Rachael Ray.

“You know, I think this is the time to indulge myself,” Giada said. “It’s such a wonderful time, so I’m eating what I want.”

Although she has stopped exercising until the baby is born, Giada says she is determined not to gain too much weight. “I eat a lot of little meals, which is what you’re supposed to do when you’re pregnant,” she says. “It’s healthier, anyway.”

She also says that her changing body is a small price to pay for the new baby. “I couldn’t be more excited about being pregnant,” she says. “She can’t get here soon enough. I can’t wait to meet her.”

    R….I scoured the internet and found ONE at one point and she had a high neck black dress and looked like a NUN…I was so disappointed!

    I’m on my third baby now so I know what you mean, but with the first one I was like her. 🙂

    I love Giada, too. I keep hoping to find a picture of her while she’s pregnant, but I haven’t seen any. The funny thing is I just had a baby and my friend and I would watch her show while I was pregnant and I would always say, “I’m so SICK of watching her eat all this rich food and still have that perfect body. I wish SHE would get pregnant.” (I was a kind of bitter pregnant person. I kind of hated it.) Then she DID and it freaked me out. But I am happy for her. I also had the same cravings as she did. I used to be all about sweets but while I was pregnant all I wanted was protein.
