Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi Welcomes A Daughter

Padma Lakshmi has welcomed a daughter, her rep has shared.

The little girl was born late Saturday in New York City, the rep added.

A source told Us magazine that the girl’s name is Krishna.

Padma, 39, has not revealed the baby’s father.

Padma’s pregnancy was considered “a medical miracle,” because Padma has struggled with endometriosis, a painful uterine condition that can lead to infertility. 

“I actually can’t button my jeans anymore,” Padma joked to Us magazine last fall when asked how her pregnancy was going. “Up until about a week ago, I could. There’s just too much pressure, so I’ve had to put them away for now.”

During her pregnancy, Padma said she hadn’t “really had any cravings. There was about a week-and-a- half when I was really craving a cinnamon donut. Then I had the cinnamon donut, and it was like, ‘Eh.’ I mean, it was OK, but that was it. And then it was over.”

    A good friend of mine also had endometriosis. Believe me, it truly feels like a miracle when you get pregnant with this condition. My friend and her husband were overjoyed and gave birth to a healthy baby boy last November.

    Hey Niloo – I am very happy for Padma. Our receptionist suffered from endomitriosis and every month would experience terrible pain when it was that time. She and her husband had started considering adoption. Well she miraculously got pregnant and her little boy is just over 4 weeks old. She is so thrilled and I am so happy for her.

    Her father is Adam Dell the venture capitalist teacher at Columbia business school and younger brother of billionaire computer maker Michael Dell.
    And “Krishna” is a classically Indian Sanskrit name, not nice in my opinion.
