New mom Giada De Laurentiis spoke to People on Sunday about Jada’s first smiles.
“She smiled for first time yesterday!” she gushed at The Second Annual Kidstock Music and Arts Festival in Beverly Hills. “It sounds so corny – and I remember my friends telling me and me being like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah,’ but it’s so special. Especially when you’re sleep deprived and all you do is change poopy diapers, it’s so great to get something in return.”
Always be on guard for smiles
“I was telling my husband before I left, you have to make sure to watch her all day, because she will give you the biggest smile when you least expect it.”
Giada is well known for her talents in the kitchen so it wasn’t a surprise that the new mom is going to be adding a baby/toddler section to her new cookbook.
“People have been asking me for years to come up with kids’ recipes and doing all that because I have a lot of kids that watch the show. And I’m thinking, ‘I’m not a mom, not my thing, leave that to the moms.’ And now, I’m so into it!”
But the one person who may not be as into it? Her husband: “[He’s] like, ‘No more puréed food, thank you very much!'” explained De Laurentiis. “Because I try all the recipes out on him first, so then we’ll see if Jade likes them.”
Aww! First smiles. Every parent remembers the first time their baby smiled.We can wait to see some updated pictures of Jade.
