Lakshmi, who kept the identity of her daughter Krishna’s baby daddy, Adam Dell, quiet for several months, admits that it isn’t easy keeping it together as a single mom.

“It does get overwhelming sometimes,” she reveals, explaining that she de-stresses by reading magazines and newspapers after she puts her child to bed at night.

“The other thing that is a good stress reliever is going to the gym, but I haven’t made it there in, like, two months. I’m like a foie gras goose fatted up!”

Dismissing the notion that women can “have it all,” Lakshmi does believe she has a lot of “resources” that her mother didn’t and tries to focus on the positive things in her life.

“I have struggled with it. It’s not easy, but I have a great career, and I have my daughter. So what I don’t have is not as important to me as what I do have.”
