Model and mom Padma Lakshmi has a lot to celebrate these days. Not only has her Emmy award-winning show Top Chef been renewed for a 20th season, but the best-selling author is celebrating her daughter Krishna's big year.

In a new Instagram post, the TV host is celebrating a series of her daughter's milestones with a rare photo of the teen.

Padma Lakshmi is one of the most recognizable faces in the culinary world.

Not only has she hosted the Emmy-award-winning cooking competition show, Top Chef, for a whopping 18 seasons, but she's an impressive cook and author in her own right.

If you're not following Ms. Lakshmi on social media, you're most certainly missing out on some DELICIOUS food and behind-the-scenes content.

Plus, her kitchen is so aesthetically pleasing and not basic that it makes me want to rip apart my entire house and model it after hers.

Despite posting so much, Padma rarely ever shares photos or videos of her daughter Krishna Thea Lakshmi-Dell, who she shares with her former partner, American venture capitalist Adam R. Dell.

Sharing a series of photos of her and her daughter from her recent Bat Mitzvah, the 51-year-old explained what a big year it's been for their family.

"This year, Littlehands got her nose pierced, took her braces off, and celebrated her Bat Mitzvah!!" she wrote.

"A big year for my baby girl," she added.

The comment section was quickly flooded with praise for Padma and her daughter.

"What a year! Best of all, she looks so joyful," wrote one follower.

"It’s the nose piercing for me. Also, can’t believe #littlehands has grown up so muchh," said another.

Congrats, Krishna!
