‘Top Chef’ host Padma Lakshmi is expecting a baby, her rep announced to Us Magazine. This is especially surprising because of Padma’s health status.
“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.
The father of the child has not been publicly identified. I hope everything goes well for Padma during her pregnancy: congratulations!
