The identity of the father ofÂ Top Chef host, Padma Lakshmi’s baby has been revealed, but theÂ Bravo star doesn’t want to talk about it. Lakshmi has remained mum for months on the man’s identity, but according to friends of the model and reality TV host, the baby’s father is Adam Dell, a venture capitalist. Naturally the press is curious but theÂ Top Chef host just wants a little peace and privacy from the media as she focuses on her new daughter, Krishna…
Padma Lakshmi, Emmy-award winning host ofÂ Bravo‘sÂ Top Chef, announced in October that she was expecting but refused to release details on who the father of her child was. Even after she welcomed daughter Krishna Thea in February, she stayed very quiet about the father’s identity. Despite her best efforts, the identity of the man has been revealed. It’s been confirmed that Adam Dell, a venture capitalist, is in fact Krishna’s biological dad, but Lakshmi doesn’t want to talk about him.Â ”I have a newborn!” Lakshmi says. “I just want some peace and privacy.”
A source close to theÂ Top Chef host says,Â ”They had an on-and-off minimal relationship that ended many, many months ago.” When Lakshmi announced her pregnancy in October, it was obvious that Dell was no longer in the picture, but now that Krishna has arrived, is Dell getting to see his daughter?Â ”There already is a very fair agreement in place,” says the source. “She doesn’t want anything from him. She’s juggling all of this with motherhood and preparing to go back to work and it’s a lot to handle.”
