Writer Salman Rushdie's former wife Padma Lakshmi is expecting her first child and she has revealed that any man who wants to impress her, can do so by whipping up a great dish of spaghetti.
The 39-year-old who calls herself a "single girl" recently confirmed her pregnancy but refused to name the father of the child, reported Fox News online.
"I think the way to anybody's heart is through their stomach. The way to my heart is through my stomach, with a really great bowl of spaghetti," the Top Chef host said in an interview to Vegas magazine.
The award winning cook book author is over the moon with the news, as she has for years battled the disease of endometriosis, which causes infertility.
"Model, author, and Emmy-nominated Padma Lakshmi confirms that she is carrying her first child after years of struggling with endometriosis. As a result of her condition, this pregnancy has been referred to by her physician as nothing short of a medical miracle," her spokesperson had said while confirming the pregnancy.
Lakshmi hasn't gone public with any romantic interests since divorcing Booker prize winning author Salman Rushdie in 2007.
Earlier reports suggested that a New York based lawyer Manu Nathan was the father of the child, but Lakshmi's representative shot down the report saying that Nathan is her cousin, not lover.
