Padma Lakshmi has welcomed a baby girl, her rep tells UsMagazine.com.

The girl was born late Saturday in New York City, the rep adds.

A source tells Us the girl's name is Krishna.

The Top Chef star, 39, has not revealed the baby's father.

UsMagazine.com first broke news that Lakshmi was expecting last October. The pregnancy was considered "a medical miracle," her rep told Us, because Lakshmi has struggled with endometriosis, a painful uterine condition that can lead to infertility.  

"I actually can't button my jeans anymore," Lakshmi joked to Us last fall when asked how her pregnancy was going. "Up until about a week ago, I could. There's just too much pressure, so I've had to put them away for now."

During her pregnancy, Lakshmi said she hadn't "really had any cravings. There was about a week-and-a- half when I was really craving a cinnamon donut. Then I had the cinnamon donut, and it was like, 'Eh.' I mean, it was OK, but that was it. And then it was over."
