Padma Lakshmi Is Pregnant

By: Celebuzz / October 1, 2009

Padma Lakshmi will be cooking for two from now on.

Us Magazine reports that the Top Chef host is pregnant with her first child. The pregnancy is particularly remarkable, given that Lakshmi is a) 39 years old, and b) suffers from endometriosis, which can lessen the possibility of becoming pregnant.

Lakshmi’s rep announced,

“As a result of her condition, 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.”

Endrometriosis, a condition in which the uterus’ lining grows in other areas of the body, can cause infertility.

The name of the father-to-be has not yet been released. Congratulations!
