Motherhood certainly agrees with Padma Lakshmi, who is mom to Krishna, 15 months.

“She’s great,” the Top Chef host, 40, says. “She’s growing, she’s eating and talking up a storm.”

What are her latest milestones?

“Just the usual. She’s a really good eater, which I’m really happy about. She likes black-eyed peas and kale. Just the normal stuff.”

When the single mom needs a lift, she turns to scents.

“I think neroli is very appealing. It has the ability to uplift your spirit and makes you feel good.”

Padma appears in Stars Tell OK! in the issue on newsstands this week. The cover line is “Bachelorette Ashley Stabbed In The Heart.”
