'Top Chef' Host Padma Lakshmi's Pregnancy Scare: She Was Hospitalized For Five Days

Doctors told Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, 39, that the fact she even got pregnant was “a miracle.”

But it was just revealed that the the gorgeous mommy-to-be “was recently hospitalized for five days” and her “baby was in serious danger,” according to Page Six.  That is so scary!

Padma has spoken publicly about suffering from endometriosis, a condition that causes a woman’s uterine lining to grow outside of the uterus. One possible side effect of endometriosis is infertility, so when Padma got pregnant, she said she was “totally blissed out” about the news.

She has kept the identity of the baby’s father a secret, as well.  She had been dating business mogul Teddy Forstmann before and during her pregnancy, but Page Six reveals that the father is “Michael Dell, is a venture capitalist who teaches at Columbia Business School.”  His brother is the maker of Dell Computers.
