The rumors have been confirmed. Us Weekly just reported that 39-year-old Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi is indeed pregnant.
“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,” the rep tells Us of Lakshmi, 39.
“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,” the rep continues.
Yes, but on to the real question: who’s the baby’s daddy?
The baby’s father has not been revealed. Online reports have speculated Manu Nathan is the dad, but her rep denies that, telling Us he’s Lakshmi’s cousin.
Either way, this baby is gonna be one heck of a cutie. Congrats to the momma-to-be!Related posts: Padma likes them “thick,” Padma Lakshmi’s Rebound Billionaire!, Salman and Padma Escape Stupor, Separate, Not a Chef, But She Plays One on TV
