Padma Lakshmi pregnant despite endometriosis fight




Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi has been cooking up a lot lately, with the Star-Ledger out of Newark, N.J., reporting that the model and cookbook author is pregnant with her first child. Time to give the table wine a rest.

The ex-Mrs. Salman Rushdie hasn't revealed the father's name, but the real news is that she's conceived despite having suffered from endometriosis, a disorder with the lining of the uterus that often leads to infertility.

"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." her rep said. We hope to be ogling her even more on Bravo for signs of the telltale baby bump.
