Top Chef host, model, cookbook author, Salman Rushdie ex, and shiny scar advocate Padma Lakshmi is now a mom. Lakshmi gave birth to a daughter named Krishna Thea on Saturday and explained how she chose the name saying it comes from “someone in my family” and that she always planned to choose “a classically Indian Sanskrit name.”

Amazingly, she’s kept the father’s identity a secret for the duration of the pregnancy. Some reports claim the father is Adam Dell, a venture capitalist whose family runs the Dell computer company, while others have speculated that Padma’s ex-boyfriend Teddy Forstmann, owner of the IMG Talent Agency, is the dad. Hopefully  the baby will look just like Padma and we’ll never know. [Photo: Getty Images]
