Top Chef‘s Padma Lakshmi has been keeping a secret about who her baby daddy is BUT we know! It appears that Padma is knocked up with Columbia University Business School professor Adam Dell and not Teddy Forstmann as first reported. It’s no surprise when we think about it. Padma was married to novelist Salman Rushdie. The venture capitalist is also the brother of computer mogul Michael Dell. Lakshmi is still keeping mum but her publicist told the NY Daily News that she “has no interest in sharing with the public the identity of the father. She asks that people respect her privacy.” I don’t understand what the big deal is? she’s pregnant, not married so why not spill the beans? Whatevers Padma!
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.
