Top Chef Host Padma Is Pregnant

Sexy host of Top Chef Padma Lakshmi is pregnant! And this isn’t just any regular pregnancy. According to her rep, Padma’s pregnancy is “nothing short of a medical miracle.”

The 39-year old host of the Bravo reality show has struggled with endometriosis for years, which is a condition that usually results in infertility. Earlier this year, Padma even co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America to bring awareness to women who suffer from the same reproductive health issue.

Her rep tells Us Weekly, "Model, author, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi confirms that she is carrying her first child… 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.”

Padma has not yet revealed the father of the baby-- Online reports speculated that Manu Nathan is the dad, but her rep denies that, saying he's Lakshmi's cousin.

Congratulations to Padma! We’re happy she was able to overcome the odds!
