Expectant mama and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi has been candid about her pregnancy since sharing the good news earlier this month. First, she spoke about her struggles with endometriosis, and now she’s talking openly about her itchy baby bump!
At a New York City brunch to champion Reebok’s line of Pink Ribbon products, Lakshmi says she has a daily “buttering ceremony” to soothe her burgeoning belly. She plans to keep butter on her plate as well, saying “I am as omnivorous as it’s possible to be. I always say there’s nothing I won’t eat and nothing I won’t wear.”
While eager to share about her progressing pregnancy, Lakshmi’s keeping mum on the father’s identity as well as the baby’s gender. Guess we’ll find out at least one of those answers when she delivers in late March/early April.

But which Hudson?
Although Kate Hudson has been rumored to want Alex Rodriguez‘s baby (see our earlier post), it’s her brother Oliver Hudson who’s adding a baby to the family!
The 36-year-old star of Rules of Engagement and his wife, Erinn Barlett, are expecting their second child. Wilder Brooks, the couple’s first child, recently turned two.

Lakshmi suffered from endometriosis, a medical condition in which the uterus lining grows outside uterus and can lead to infertility. She has had surgery to treat her condition, but Lakshmi’s rep said her doctor is calling this pregnancy a medical miracle.
No word on a due date or who the baby’s father might be.
