Congratulations to Gail Simmons and her husband Jeremy Abrams who welcomed a baby girl on Sunday (December 29). The baby’s name is Dahlia Rae Abrams. Her rep confirmed to People, “Dahlia weighed 7 lbs., 3 oz. Mother, father and baby are doing wonderfully.”
Simmons, 37, is known for her role as a Top Chef judge. In October she said she was having an easy pregnancy.
“I really can’t complain. It’s been amazing. I feel great and I have lots of energy. I still have a few months left, and then the actual parenting begins!”
Simmons – who is also the special projects manager for Food and Wine Magazine – didn’t tell her Top Chef: New Orleans colleagues she was expecting.
“The chefs didn’t know I was pregnant,” She told USA Today in September. “I was very newly pregnant when we shot and it was no one’s business. And I wasn’t showing so it didn’t matter. It really wasn’t an issue. I was worried it would be, but it wasn’t a problem.”
