Padma Lakshmi finally shows off her adorable baby Krishna


These are the first photos that I’ve seen of Padma Lakshmi’s baby girl Krishna. Krishna was born back in February, under a minor storm of baby daddy drama. Months later, it was revealed that the baby daddy was someone shockingly age-appropriate – entrepreneur Adam Dell, who promptly began litigating his way into his daughter’s life. Anyway, Padma never released any baby photos, and the few times Padma’s been out with the baby, Krishna’s face is usually covered. So now we finally get to see the little girl…

And she’s so cute! Is it conceited for me to say that? Because I look at these photos and I think this baby looks just like I did. I’m half-Indian, half-Anglo, just like Krishna. I have lighter brown skin than my Indian parent (I refer to myself as “brownish”), my hair isn’t the typical jet-black of Indians either, just like Krishna. But my mom never put on her best hot pink sweater dress and swaddled me in fuchsia. So Krishna’s got a leg up on me. Still – adorable brownish baby!

    Do you think the man she is with is her father? If it is, that’s a cute outing- baby, mommy, and grandpa.

  2. Franny says:

    she’s adorable…but what are on her wrists?

  3. Exiled says:

    Jade bracelets maybe?

  4. hanh says:

    So cute! Just makes me want to snuggle my own baby boy.

  5. Hautie says:

    I was also wondering if that is Padma’s father too… he looks like he gets to handle the diaper bag.

    awww she’s such a cutie!

    What a cute mama and daughter!!!
    My daughter always said “mama is pink and daddy is brown…I am golden”…Aaaahhhh, love how she keeps it simple.

    way to call the paps, pashmina!
    no one is checkin’ for this chick normally. what a set-up. 🙁

    Very Cute!

    When you say “brownish” I picture “perfect”. That’s what you meant? She’ll have that sunkissed, healthy glow shade all her life. Plus her mum’s other genes, lucky girl… (haven’t seen dad – though those eyes don’t look like Padma’s).

    I want to know what happened?? Does she know how many mothers WISH they’re kid’s fathers wanted to actively participate in their child’s life! It seems a bit shellfish but I’m sure there is more the story….there always is.

    Adorable baby! Padma is gorgeous-but she does not know how to dress.

  13. Keyanna says:

    That baby looks straight up white to me.

  14. Tess says:

    She’s got the most exquisite cheekbones.

    Adorable baby.

    Kaiser, question: would you share the significance of your nom de plume? Does it relate to Victoria’s grandson Wilhelm?

  15. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow, that’s a cute baby!

    “My daughter always said “mama is pink and daddy is brown…I am golden””

    that is one of the sweetest and most beautiful statements I think I’ve ever heard.

    Out of the mouths of babes…

    lovely baby!

  17. Tia C says:

    @ Keyanna: That’s exactly what I was thinking.

    Beautiful baby!

    Gorgeous eyes. Love the shoes.

  19. meg says:

    I think this is her husband

  20. girl says:

    Gorgeous. Both of them. I’m trying to figure out what carrier that is because it looks horribly uncomfortable. It is nice to see a celebrity wearing their baby but she looks like she is doing it wrong.

  21. Cleo says:

    That’s very good.

  22. gg says:

    @ Tess, I have always wondered as well. 🙂 Being a history nut and all.

  23. Cleo says:

    Padma has really small eyes for an Indian girl. She’s still perfect and the baby is perfecter!
