“Top Chef’s” Gail Simmons started the new year as a new mom!
The 37-year-old Bravo star and husband Jeremy Abrams welcomed their first child, daughter Dahlia Rae Abrams, on December 29, People reported.
“Dahlia weighed 7 lbs., 3 oz.,” her rep told the mag. “Mother, father and baby are doing wonderfully.”
In October, she told the mag that her first pregnancy had been easy one.
“I really can’t complain. It’s been amazing,” she said at the time. “I feel great and I have lots of energy. I still have a few months left, and then the actual parenting begins!”
The culinary expert/food writer and Jeremy were married in 2008 in New York City.
The couple’s little one joins the growing “Top Chef” family that includes Padma Lakshmi’s daughter, Krishna; Tom Colicchio’s three sons and “Top Chef Masters” host Curtis Stone’s 18-month-old son, Hudson, with Lindsay Price.
