The divorce of TV chef Giada De Laurentiis from husband Todd Thompson has been finalized, and has all the details.

The Food Network beauty was ordered by the court to provide Thompson with $9,000 monthly child support as part of their joint custody agreement for their 7-year-old daughter, Jade Marie, according to court docs. She must also sign over the $3.2 home the pair owned in swanky Pacific Palisades, Calif., that contains more than $300,000 in furnishings.

The stunning TV personality, who did not have a prenuptial agreement with the fashion designer Thompson, was ordered to forward half of any royalties from her book endeavors during the marriage, as well as half of the advances for her pending releases. (The total that eclipses $5 million, court docs stated.)

The two will also split $2 million spread over various bank accounts.

They announced their separation in 2014, after 11 years together.

At that time, she issued a statement that read, "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.

"Todd and I share a beautiful daughter and a lifetime of great memories that we both treasure more than anything."
