Padma Lakshmi shows off bikini bod a year after giving birth

London: Padma Lakshmi was recently spotted flaunting her trim and taut body in the Bahamas – exactly a year after giving birth to her daughter.

The 40-year-old, who hosts America`s Top Chef, looked stunning as she strolled along the beach on her baby Krishna`s first birthday over the weekend, reports a daily.

The former model stirred up a treat by showing off her rock hard abs in an ethnic print string bikini with black satin bows at the side.

Her long dark hair hung casually down her back and she wore large sunglasses to keep the glare from the Caribbean sky out of her eyes.
