In the post, she called the split "amicable," writing: "Although our decision to separate comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus on the future and overwhelming desire for our family's happiness has given us the strength to move forward on separate, yet always connected paths."

The pair have one daughter, Jade Marie.

In addition to being a Daytime Emmy Award winner for her Food Network program, De Laurentiis also founded a catering business called GDL Foods.

And is a frequent, popular guest on talk shows.

It isn't yet clear whether the couple - who married in 2003 - have filed for divorce. In that Facebook announcement, De Laurentiis thanked friends and family for their support.
