Padma Lakshmi Is a Mom!

Congratulations are in order! Padma Lakshmi gave birth to her first child this weekend, a baby girl named Krishna. The Top Chef stunner's rep confirmed that Krishna was born on February 20 in New York City.

But the big question still remains: Who is little Krishna's father? Padma has kept that info a strict secret, with her publicist only commenting, "Padma has no interest in sharing with the public the identity of the father."

But the folks over at PopEater couldn't resist a little speculation, and they came up with their favorite nominees for Padma's baby daddy. First, they entertained the possibility that Krishna is the result of an immaculate conception -- Lakshmi's pregnancy has been referred to as a "medical miracle" due to years of struggling with endometriosis and infertility.

But a couple of real names come to mind. Venture capitalist Adam Dell has been mentioned as a possibility, in addition to Padma's ex-husband Salman Rushdie and her former boyfriend Teddy Forstmann .

Since Lakshmi starred in an Eels music video last year, she's also been linked to the group's frontman E. And most exciting, there are plenty of people who'd love to believe the lucky guy is a Top Chef contestant -- Brian Malarkey, perhaps? Just a reality TV fan's dream.
