Padma Lakshmi has intentionally kept quiet on the identity of her baby daddy, ostensibly to keep press attention to a minimum. File that under Best Laid Plans.

The cover of Padma's mystery man has officially been blown now that he's making a play for more face time with their one-month-old "miracle" daughter, Krishna.

While no one's gone on record just yet, a source close to venture capitalist Adam Dell confirms to E! News that he is in fact the girl's father, a rumor that has been swirling online for some time.

According to the source, Dell and Lakshmi are currently negotiating new visitation rights after Dell, who splits his time between Austin and New York, grew unhappy with their arrangement.

We're guessing he's not the only one who's unhappy anymore.


It's probably safe to say these three won't be posing for our Famous Families gallery any time soon.
