On May 25, 2003, De Laurentiis married Todd Thompson, a fashion designer for Anthropologie. The two had been dating since July 1989. She later worked as a food stylist and was contacted by the Food Network after styling a piece in Food & Wine Magazine in 2002. She felt very uncomfortable in front of the camera when she first began hosting Everyday Italian, but has since become more relaxed and open on air.
