The father of Padma Lakshmi’s baby has been identified, reports the New York Post.

It’s Adam Dell, a venture capitalist and the brother of Dell Computers founder Michael Dell. Bravo, Padma.

The ‘Top Chef’ host gave birth to daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi on February 20th and kept the child’s father a secret ever since she announced her “miracle” pregnancy in October.

Lakshmi, 39, and Dell, 40, who splits his time between Austin and New York City, are reportedly trying to work out visitation rights, but according to a source, Dell has been telling friends “how excited he was to raise her, but that Padma wasn’t being entirely accommodating.”
