Padma Lakshmi proudly showed off her trim and taut body exactly a year after giving birth to her daughter, Krishna.
The 40-year-old former model, who hosts America's Top Chef, looked stunning as she strolled along the beach in the Bahamas on her baby's first birthday over the weekend.
Padma stirred up a treat by showing off her rock hard abs in an ethnic print string bikini with black satin bows at the side.
Her long dark hair hung casually down her back and she wore large sunglasses to keep the glare from the Caribbean sky out of her eyes.
The Indian beauty recently tweeted one of the tips that keeps her svelte figure in shape by telling her fans to choose healthy drinks like tea instead of fattening sodas.
