Indian supermodel Padma Lakshmi introduced her daughter Krishna Thea to the sights and sounds of New York as she took the new born out to the park on her first outing.
The 3-week-old tot is the first child of the 39-year-old Top Chef host and the mother-daughter pair were bundled up against the NYC chill, reported People magazine online.
The photograph shows Krishna yawning in her mother’s arm as Lakshmi looks on adoringly.
The cook-book author has refused to identify her daughter’s father.
But a friend of the TV host told the magazine just before Krishna’s birth that Lakshmi was ready for motherhood.
“Padma is very happy. She’s wanted to be a mom for a long time. She was very relieved and happy when she got pregnant,” said the source.
