Who is Padma Lakshmi’s baby daddy?

leave a comment »

Following Indian tradition, Padma Lakshmi gave her newborn baby girl an Indian name: Krishna. But who is Krishna’s daddy?

Padma has never identified the father, telling the New York Post via her publicist that, “She has no interest in sharing with the public the identity of the father. She asks that people respect her privacy.”

Fat chance of that happening! We understand Padma’s need for privacy, but we can’t help it. We want to know! Who fathered your child, Padma?

Adam Dell

Was it Adam Dell, the 40-year-old younger brother of Dell Computer whiz, Michael Dell, whom you dated in and around May 2008? (The pair were spotted at La Esquina restaurant in NYC; he was rubbing her back.)

Or was it Ted Forstmann, the Wall Street tycoon who dated Elizabeth Hurley when she broke up with Hugh Grant in 2000?

The white-haired Forstmann and Padma were spotted attending a Knicks game in Madison Square Garden in NYC in January 2009.

Ted Forstmann

Or was it someone else? A sperm donor perhaps? The mind starts to run wild with the possibilities.

Padma Lakshmi Gives Birth to Baby Girl ‘Krishna’

leave a comment »

It’s a girl for Padma Lakshmi! According to US Magazine, Padma gave birth on Saturday, February 20 in New York City to a baby girl. Padma, who has refused to identify the father of her baby, has named her little girl, Krishna. The birth is considered a “medical miracle” because 39-year-old Padma suffered from endometriosis, reports US.

Congratulations to Padma! We’re sure her daughter will be as beautiful as she is. Now, if only we could satisfy our curiosity and find out who the father is…

Why is Padma Lakshmi naked?

Padma Lakshmi in Allure Magazine, May issue

I really don’t care to see Padma Lakshmi naked. Especially since she is most well-known for hosting a certain food competition show. (I don’t want to picture naked people and food together.) “I tend to sleep in the nude,” Lakshi tells Allure Magazine (we imagine, in her slurred speech). Now, I guess we get to peek at what Salman Rushdie got to look at for the three years they were married, before she dumped him after getting famous on Top Chef.

Padma Lakshmi and Salman Rushdie when they were married.   Is that why he looks so smug in these photos? Or is that his natural expression?
