The former lingerie model confessed to “Extra’s” AJ Calloway at our H&M studios in Times Square how she ended up stripping-down one more time for a headline-making Instagram post last week.

“I think my body has given life to a child, it’s fed a child but I’m also an adult, you know? I worked really hard to get lean for the Emmys. I was getting undressed and my niece lives with me now… and she came up and she was like, ‘Oh, my God, you look so hot! We have to put this picture on Instagram.’”

She added, “It was totally gratuitous — I’m the first to admit it — and so I said, ‘Don't hate because I'm in lingerie. Moms do that sometimes.’”

Padma also dished on her line of Easy Exotic Rice and her new book. Watch!
