Padma Lakshmi celebrated her 52nd birthday in a bikini: ’52 is the new 25′

The author, activist, model and longtime “Top Chef” host celebrated her birthday with a throwback photo from her vacation in Hawaii in April. She shared a stunning swimsuit snap on Twitter with the caption: “This is the 52nd year.”

Wearing a wreath of flowers, Padma in a black bikini with laces on the side posed calm and stunning against the backdrop of the sea. This image, understandably, caught the attention of her fans.

“Stunning. Amazing. Goddess,” one follower commented, while one woman wrote: “Gorgeous as always! I honestly didn’t look this good at 22 either, so I wish you more power beautiful woman!”

“52 is the new 25,” added another.

The “Tomatoes for Nila” author often shares swimsuit snaps on social media — like in 2019, when she emphasized that she didn’t use filters or Facetune for her bikini body, and two years ago, when she celebrated the new decade her with a series of bikini snaps with her ex Adam Dell.

Her birthday celebration comes with a difficult month for the star – her ex-husband, author Salman Rushdie, was stabbed in a shocking attack during a literary event in New York on August 12.

“Relieved @SalmanRushdie is making it after Friday’s nightmare,” he tweeted two days later. “I can finally exhale. Now I hope for a quick recovery” she added, expressing her concern and hope for recovery.

Indeed, it has been “a year full of ups and downs,” Lakshmi said in an Instagram post on the occasion of her birthday.

Writing that she was “thrilled” about filming Season 2 of Taste the Nation, along with winning her first James Beard Foundation Award and three Critics’ Choice Awards, the personality also had some sad moments — like losing her grandmother as well as her friend Arthur Chadbourne.

Despite her losses, Lakshmi ended her post on a positive note, writing that she has “so much to be thankful for” including her daughter, Krishna, whom she calls “Littlehands” on social media.

“Littlehands continues to thrive and we are both happy, healthy and productive,” she wrote. “This birthday makes me feel content and grateful, if with a somewhat heavy heart.”
