Today contributor and chef Giada De Laurentiis was on Today this morning, promoting her new book, Giada’s Kitchen: New Italian Favorites, and cooking up some delicious meals with host Matt Lauer. Making a special appearance? Giada’s six-month-old daughter, Jade Marie!

Giada, 38, says she was inspired by her daughter to cook for kids and create recipes that children can help with when in the kitchen. She shared, "I started helping out in the kitchen early in my life, and I hope thatJade will, too. In our family, cooking is a tradition that’s passeddown from one generation to the next. But first, Jade needs some teeth!"

After commenting on how cute Jade is, Matt jokingly asked, "Is she sleeping?" To which Giada replied "I am, and she is!" As for husband, designer Todd Thompson? "No!" she joked, adding of their baby girl, "Luckily, we got a good one."

Jade is a doll! She really has her mom’s “jade” green eyes, but I see a lot of her daddy in her too.

Now that is a cute baby. Looks a lot different than the little burrito we saw in the operating room pictures. Todd is funny in that video, he is holding her like a sack of potatoes!!

Jade is too cute and looks just like her mom. BUT i was laughing at how her husband brought her in like a toy and kept moving her around like he wasn’t sure how to hold her. Too funny…

No surprise that baby is soooooo beautiful. I’ve always loved Giada, so happy for her and her husband, and I think it’s sweet that they’ve given their daughter the English version of Giada’s name.
