Padma Lakshmi On Recent Custody Ruling

Padma Lakshmi says she didn't lose anything in her custody battle.

While walking the red carpet at "The Blossom Ball," a fundraiser for women suffering from endometriosis (a disease that effects the uterus), the Top Chef host got VERY emotional about the legal battle over her 2-year-old daughter, Krishna, with computer mogul Adam Dell.

Padma teared up as she told reporters:

"I was told I had a very small chance of ever having a baby. EVER having one. [Krishna] just turned 2 years old and she's a beautiful, healthy, happy baby, and I didn't lose anything. There was nothing to lose — she's a delight and joy."

It's understandable that Padam would get a little emo by the thought of her daughter at the charity event. She acknowledges how lucky she is to have had a child at all, saying:

"I had a very small percentage of a chance of ever having a baby. What we're doing here tonight is actually helping the 10 million other women [who are affected with endometriosis] to have the possibility of the same joy that I have."

AW! We knew we loved her for a good reason!

She is beautiful, talented and incredibly humble. She must be a fantastic momma!

Theodore Forstmann Has Passed Away From Brain Cancer

Filed under: Sad SadHealthPadma Lakshmi

Ted Forstmann Dies

Padma Lakshmi was romantically linked to Teddy Forstmann, who was a vet in the business world and a philanthropist.

He was 71, and lost a battle with brain cancer, unfortunately.

It's never good to hear news like this, and our thoughts go out to his family and sons, who will need support through this tough time.

From what we understand, he was a good man.

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.

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

padma-lakshmi-baby-drama1.jpg

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.
