Welcome to the world, Krishna Thea Lakshmi!

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi gave birth to a baby girl, Krishna Thea Lakshmi, on Saturday, according to People.com. A representative for the actress and model told the magazine that “Mother and baby are well and happy.”

Lakshmi’s pregnancy was often referred to as a “medical miracle” because she suffers from endometriosis, which in severe cases can cause infertility. Lakshmi co-founded the Endometriosis Foundation of America with Dr. Tamer Seckin last year. According to a 2009 Newsweek.com piece, the foundation “hopes to raise awareness, improve education, press Congress for more research money and lobby medical schools to teach students more about the disorder.”
