Adam Dell the Father of Padma Lakshmi's Baby?
According to New York's Page Six, Adam Dell, the younger brother of billionaire computer manufacturer Michael Dell, is the father of Top Chef's host Padma Lakshmi. Padma is almost due to give birth, but she has so far been silent about who is the father of her baby.
Padma Lakshmi is the ex-wife of Salman Rushdie and was linked to Teddy Forstmann for a long time, and many thought Teddy was the father of her baby.
Padma was spotted out with Adam Dell first around two years ago and they attended many events and parties together.
Lakshmi, who started modeling at age 16, announced she was pregnant in October. Given that Lakshmi has suffered for years with endometriosis, the pregnancy was described by her doctor as "nothing short of a medical miracle."
Padma recently spent a few days in the hospital due to complications with her pregnancy and according to a source, Teddy was by her side the entire time.
Lakshmi's publicist, Christina Papadopoulos, told us, "She has no interest in sharing with the public the identity of the father. She asks that people respect her privacy."
Adam Dell has not given a statment on the matter.
