Congratulations to Padma Lakshmi who welcomed a baby girl this weekend. The host of Top Chef named her little one Krishna Thea Lakshmi. A close friend of Padma released a statement: “Padma is very happy. She’s wanted to be a mom for a long time. She was very relieved and happy when she got pregnant.” We can’t wait to see pictures of little Krishna!
The beautiful and talented Padma Lakshmi of Top Chef is pregnant! Her rep released a statement:
“Model, author, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi confirms that she is carrying her first child after years of struggling with endometriosis, a cause for which she has co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America. As a result of her condition, this pregnancy has been referred to by her physician as nothing short of a medical miracle, and due to its delicate nature, we ask/implore the press to respect Ms. Lakshmi’s privacy at this time.”
Endometriosis is a medical condition in which the uterus’ lining grows in other areas of the body, causing pain, irregular bleeding and possible infertility.
We have no idea who the baby daddy is but some speculate that its Manu Nathan who works in Business & Legal Affairs at IMG talent agency. Us Magazine says he is supposedly just a cousin. She has also been linked to IMG’s CEO, billionaire Ted Forstmann. Padma was married to the novelist Salman Rushdie for three years but the two split in 2007.
The May issue of Allure magazine asked five celebrity woman to pose naked in its issue. In the May issue that comes out April 21st the woman talk about baring it all, self-esteem, and their perfect bodies. The other celebrity woman who posed au natural are: Lyn Collins, Sharon Leal, Eliza Dushku.
Check out what Padma had to say to Allure.
Allure: Do you sleep naked?
Padma: “I tend to sleep in the nude. I’m an innately tactile person and a very sensual-leaning woman. You have to use the word “leaning” or it sounds like I’m boasting! When I’m in my own private space, I do spend time with very little on.”
The comedienne Chelsea Handler told Allure that her:
“boobs are good.” They’re real and perky. Even if you can’t see them, the important thing is that I know about them, and the guys I’ve slept with know about them.”
