It’s not easy being a single mom with a thriving career!
Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, who is a single mother to a two-year-old, reveals the hardships of juggling her career with being a mom in the November 2012 issue of More magazine, and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“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.”
