Padma Lakshmi is the gorgeous, entertaining, and accomplished host of Top Chef, and she's also a mom. That means she has a pretty full day, and probably a busy night, too.
Lakshmi recently shared a photo of exactly how busy some of those daily moments are, as she breastfeeds her kid while applying her makeup:
People are impressed:
They can even relate:
Love this! It never ends for working moms! Thank you for sharing!— AmyFalbaumAssociates (@AmyFalbaum) May 10, 2018
Though a few are wondering if Lakshmi is applying makeup for the next season of Top Chef, because that's their priority:
First off Boss Status big time! Second: So you are already filming for next season?— Ricky cunningham (@foodman33) May 10, 2018
We also have a fair helping of haters:
I’m sure your can afford an assistant... to breastfeed your baby.— Vaughn Fry (@VaughnFry) May 11, 2018
Am sure you have someone to put on the makeup while u hold the baby right??!! I think thats what should matter! Or before or after u feed the baby??!!! If its just a pic to convey a message then its ok, i mean!— M.D. (@ManjuDesh9) May 11, 2018
Look, they're not wrong. Lakshmi probably does have someone else who can apply her makeup, but she's a TV host, not a queen. Moms gotta do for themselves sometimes, even famous ones.
And she also needs to make time for things like eating pizza:
Dancing in the car:
And drinking margaritas:
And if you don't like it, you're jealous.
Lakshmi is in this working mom gig to win it.
