"Top Chef" hostess Padma Lakshmi is expecting her first child!

The foodie beauty's rep confirmed her happy news to Us Weekly, saying, "Model, author, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi confirms that she is carrying her first child after years of struggling with endometriosis, a cause for which she has co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America."

Endometriosis is a medical condition that causes irregularities in the uterus, and can lead to infertility.

Padma's rep continues, "As a result of her condition, this pregnancy has been referred to by her physician as nothing short of a medical miracle, and due to its delicate nature, we ask/implore the press to respect Ms. Lakshmi's privacy at this time."

The father of Lakshmi's child has yet to be identified. Padma split from ex-husband author Salma Rushdie in 2007.
