Iron Chef Host Padma Lakshmi Has Baby Girl
It’s a girl for Padma Lakshmi!
Model, author and Emmy-nominated host of ‘Top Chef’’ gave birth on Saturday to a baby girl named Krishna Thea Kakshmi. This is especially joyous news to Lakshmi who suffers from endometriosis, a painful uterine condition which can lead to infertility.
Padma, who announced her pregnancy last October said it was a “miracle” that she got pregnant.
Lakshmi joked last fall “I actually can’t button my jeans anymore. Up until about a week ago I could. There’s just too much pressure, so I’ve had to put them away for now.” ‘Sounds like Lakshmi could have used a Bellaband to get her through a few more weeks!
During her pregnancy, the ‘Top Chef’ host said she hadn’t “really had any cravings. There was a week-and-a-half when I was really craving a cinnamon donut. Then I had a cinnamon donut, and it was like “Eh.” I mean, it ws OK, but that was it. And then it was over.”
According to reports, mother and child are doing well, which is great news.
