Congratulations to Padma Lakshmi, who became a mother late Saturday. Daily Intel attended the benefit for the Hungry in America Project, the documentary Tom Colicchio’s wife Lori Silverbush made to raise awareness for hunger, and heard it straight from Silverbush herself: “I ran into Padma the day before she gave birth. The day before yesterday. She was ready, walking around, trying to make herself go into labor.” People reports that it was a girl named Krishna Thea Lakshmi. Mazel tov!
