Dell is a venture capitalist and Columbia Business School professor whose brother is none other than Michael Dell -- of DELL computers. He's known to be a good friend of Padma's, and they were even spotted out together several times a couple of years back. Throughout her pregnancy, Lakshmi never discussed the identity of the baby's father.
Padma gave birth to a daughter named Krishna on February 20, 2010. She and Dell are said to be working out their terms on visitation rights, as a source told People.com, "It's all in negotiations. They are trying to work it out. They are trying to avoid anything messy."
The insider added that Dell wants "more time and involvement with the child."
