Meet Krishna Thea Lakshmi


Late last month we learned that model and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi gave birth to her first child … a daughter she beautifully named Krishna Thea. Today, courtesy of People magazine, we get our first look at the precious little darling out in the world with her doting mother watching over her. Say hello to little Miss Krishna:

Meet baby Krishna! Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi just gave birth to her daughter on Feb. 20 – and already mother and daughter are hitting the town. On Thursday, the two were photographed on a New York bench. Next stop, Le Bernardin? Lakshmi, 39, has not identified her 3-week-old daughter’s father. But a friend of the TV host told PEOPLE just before Krishna’s birth that Lakshmi was ready for motherhood. “Padma is very happy. She’s wanted to be a mom for a long time. She was very relieved and happy when she got pregnant.”

Awww … aren’t these two just the cutest thing ever? I’m actually very surprised that Padma would be venturing out and about with her baby girl so soon after her birth. Padma strikes me as a very private person (who won’t even disclose the identity of her babydaddy) so I would think she’d take great pains to keep her little one under-wraps for as long as possible. Still, I’m happy that we get this first look at Krishna … her mother is such a beauty, I can only imagine how beautiful this little girl will grow to be. Welcome to the world, Krishna! I hope you enjoy a very long and very happy life :)
