London: ‘Top Chef’ host Padma Lakshmi took her baby daughter Krishna Thea for a helicopter ride in New York City yesterday.

The baby girl looked unfazed in her mother`s arms as Salman Rushdie’s ex-wife strode purposefully towards the chopper, reports the Daily Mail.

Lakshmi refused to name who fathered the little girl throughout her pregnancy and during the first month of her daughter`s life.

The model eventually confirmed him as Adam Dell, a business and technology professor at Columbia Business School in New York.
