6 Padma Lakshmi Padma
6. Padma Lakshmi. Padma might be the poster mom for all the fiercely independent single mothers out there. Padma reportedly was so intent on raising her child by herself that she resisted telling the press the identity of her babydaddy. Even when the father revealed himself and said he wanted to be more involved with his child's life, Padma got defensive and said that they already had "an agreement." Padma doesn't want any help with her kid, apparently!
