Padma Lakshmi Baby

TOP CHEF BABY GIRL ~ Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi is a first time mother. Her rep released this statement to People; "Model, author and Emmy-nominated host of Top Chef Padma Lakshmi gave birth to a baby girl named Krishna Thea Lakshmi on Saturday, Mother and baby are well and happy."

Lakshmi said of the baby's name; "I am going to name the child an Indian name. It will be after someone in my family, so don't expect to see an Anglicized name – it will be a classically Indian Sanskrit name."

Lakshmi, 39, announced her pregnancy in October after years of struggling with endometriosis, a cause for which she has co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
The baby's father has not been revealed. Lakshmi split from novelist Salman Rushdie in 2007 after three years of marriage.

She won the Best First Book award for her first cookbook, Easy Exotic and her second cook book, Tangy, Tart, Hot and Sweet, was released in October 2007.

Names on the Map

PLACE NAMES are interesting choices for names and are becoming a fast growing trend in baby naming. Places can hold a special connection for a couple as not only a landmark geographically but a landmark in the relationship. There is also a huge appeal as the choices are endless and vast as the places themselves.

It has been said that director Ron Howard chose the middle names of his children after the places that they were conceived. It has also been rumoured that this is the case with Brooklyn Beckham, oldest child to David & Victoria "Posh" Beckham but this has since been disputed and apparently Victoria favoured the name Brooke for a girl and they settled on Brooklyn for their son.
