Krishna Thea Lakshmi is Padma Lakshmi’s Baby Daughter

February 22, 2010

Krishna Thea Lakshmi is Padma Lakshmi’s baby girl! Boy, I bet those baby pictures are going to be worth a zillion dollars, especially since they can officially announce the baby’s father at the same time, if so desired. Read more here and check out photos along with video here!

Padma Lakshmi

When Padma Lakshmi announced she was pregnant, the first question on everyone’s mind was, “Who is the father?”. Well, that still remains a mystery, but the name of her baby girl doesn’t. The top Chef host gave birth to Krishna Thea Lakshmi on Saturday February 20 in a New York City hospital.

Padma revealed that her pregnancy was pretty much a miracle because she has suffered from a condition called endometriosis, which often means a woman cannot bare children. I had a friend who suffered from this condition and it is not fun, and finding out you are pregnant is a true gift. She is also 39 years old so she had a lot of odds against her.

Her rep told People magazine that, “Mother and baby are well and happy.”

So are you wondering where she got the baby name from? Lakshmi revealed earlier in her pregnancy that she would give the baby a “a classically Indian Sanskrit name. Not a fancy name, but a name that is close to my family. It will be after someone in my family.” So there ya have it!

So we just are left wondering about the father. Our friends over at PopEater have a nice poll going around as to whether or not she should keep his name private or let the world know. They also have a few suggestions of who the father may be. What are your thoughts?

So until the baby pictures of Krishna Thea Lakshmi are released, this is all we have. Best wishes to mom and baby! Please check back for the pics and enjoy photos and video below!
