Padma Lakshmi Was A Size 14 After Having Her Baby

Padma Lakshmi

So refreshing to hear!

Most celeb moms seem to magically float back to their skeletal size the week after giving birth.

However there was no magic in Padma Lakshmi's weightless. The Top Cheif host says after giving birth to her daughter, Krishna Thea, it took forever to take off the pounds.

“I wasn’t like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway. It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it.”

Admitted Padma. The gorgeous Bravo star said the whole experience taught her a lot about humility, and fashion.

“I did learn a new way to dress after I had [Krishna]. I was on the side of every bus in town [for Top Chef]. I was on billboards. And I was a size 14. And not that being a size 14 is even that big, but it was big for me … I went up 10 dress sizes in six months. I had no idea how to dress. I’d never worn Spanx before!”

Well, not a lot of women are gonna feel bad for you about that! LOL.

We're sure Padma looks great at any size.

Padma Lakshmi's A Bronze Goddess

Top Chef hostess Padma Lakshmi shined on the Emmy red carpet this weekend.

The former model and jewelry designer looked pretty in a bronze Armani Prive mermaid gown and messy up-do.

If this were a competition, we think it's safe to say Padma wouldn't have to pack her knives and go.

Padma Speaks Out On Custody Battle

Filed under: TV NewsBaby BlabberLegal Matters

Yesterday morning, we reported the saddening news that Padma Lakshmi has found herself in a bitter custody battle with baby daddy Adam Dell. Adam reportedly filed for full custody this week throwing a huge wrench in their ongoing negotiations.

A rep for Padma has come forward with a statement from the Top Chef star in response to this latest development. The rep explains:

"Ms. Lakshmi believes that family matters should be kept private. She asks that those who join her in wanting the best for her daughter do the same. 24 hours after the New York Post was told about Adam Dell's lawsuit, neither Padma Lakshmi nor her lawyers has received a copy of it; they only learned of it through a statement Mr. Dell provided to the press. Ms. Lakshmi's sole interest lies in preserving the privacy and welfare of her daughter and in working out a fair and amicable agreement out of the media's glare."

Sorry, but it doesn't sound like that is going to be possible, not with your ex's big mouth.

We hope you two will find a way to settle this civilly though, for the baby's sake.

Baby Daddy Dramaz For Padma Lakshmi

Filed under: TV NewsBaby Blabber

Poor kid! Thankfully, she’s to young to realize her parents are at WAR!

Top Chef star Padma Lakshmi is having some, oh let’s say, communication issues with her baby’s father, Adam Dell. This week, Adam upped his game and filed paperwork to get custody of their daughter, 11-month-old daughter, Krishna Thea Lakshmi. As it stands, he already gets 9 days a month with her, but that simply isn’t enough for him.

Sources explain that the couple was meant to settle on a new custody arrangement once Krishna turns a year old. However, negotiations fell apart and now Adam is playing hardball to get want he wants. He’s complained to the courts that Padma only gives him seven hours a week to spend with the baby, but Padma’s camp insists she has never denied him a day of visitation. There’s also some talk that this custody battle is all a ruse and that what Adam’s really after is a fresh start with Padma. He’s insistent that the pair should start a relationship, but Padma just isn’t having it. She’s told friends that she simply wants nothing to do with him, not even child support!

We’d take the hint, Adam. If you haven’t changed her mind by now, we don’t think you ever will. How about you just concentrate your efforts on raising a beautiful, healthy baby girl? She’s a girl we can guarantee will love you if you treat her right!

padma lakshmi talks about her post baby workout

It's hard to believe that Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi gave birth last February because she looks SO great!

How can someone stay in such fantastic shape after having a baby? Here's Padma on her post-baby workout:

"I woke up at 6AM, I nursed. Then I ran up and down 70 flights of stairs. Then I had breakfast, then went to the gym and lifted weights for an hour. Then I walked home."

Wow. We're exhausted just READING that! Such an intense workout!

Don't beat yourself up if you have trouble matching Padma's 70 flights. She's def some kind of superwoman!

We definitely approve of her daily workout schedule. Always a good idea to get into a consistent routine.

Keep it up, bb! You're an inspiration to all of us!
