While many celebrity moms choose twitter as an outlet to share personal family photos and everyday hilarious childhood happenings, Padma Lakshmi refuses to tweet about her daughter.
The Top Chef host said, “I never tweet about my daughter. Never. I just want to be respectful of her privacy. My job as a mom is to know when to open my mouth and when not to. It’s not my place to make those decisions for other members of my family. I try to be respectful of that.”
And Lakshmi always makes sure 2-year-old, Krishna, eats healthy. She shares, “My family has a really good diet. It’s mostly plant-based. She eats a lot of vegetables — kale and cauliflower. Lots of fruits. Lots of beans – every lentil on the planet she can get her hands on. She loves couscous.It’s not a lot of meat. I will introduce chicken and after, other meats, just because I want her to have a diverse diet so she can get along wherever she is and whoever she’s with.”
Want to know how Padma looks so good? “I have a really good metabolism, I’ve always been pretty thin and I’m 5’9”. But it was hard. I gained 45 pounds when I was pregnant and I was bedridden for six weeks after she was born. I didn’t have the luxury of going to the gym and I had to go right back to work. And my job is about eating every day – way more than you would ever want to. I wasn’t like those girls who give birth and are back on the runway. It took me probably six months to gain 45 pounds and I would say it took me double that time to lose it.”
