Padma Lakshmi Has A Lot Of Help Raising Her Daughter

Top Chef‘ star and celebrity mom Padma Lakshmi says that despite being a single parent, she has a lot of help from her family and friends.

Padma believes in ‘it takes a village’ when it comes to raising kids:

“In truth, I am a single mother. But I don’t feel alone at all in parenting my daughter.  Krishna has a whole other side of her family who loves her, too. And so Krishna is parented by me, but also by her grandmother and aunts and cousins and uncles and friends.  The more who encompass her, the more different kinds of people who are in Krishna’s life, the better off she is.”

Padma also doesn’t believe in oversharing anything when it comes to her daughter:

“I never Tweet about my daughter. Never. I just want to be respectful of her privacy.  My job as a mom is to know when to open my mouth and when not to.”

She also shared that she took her time losing baby weight – about 45 lbs overall:

“I wasn’t like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway.  It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it.  I did learn a new way to dress after I had [Krishna]. I was on the side of every bus in town [for Top Chef]. I was on billboards.   And I was a size 14. And not that being a size 14 is even that big, but it was big for me … I went up 10 dress sizes in six months. I had no idea how to dress. I’d never worn Spanx before!”

    Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with
    a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!
