"Top Chef" host Padma Lakshmi's drawn-out custody battle with ex-boyfriend Adam Dell has finally come to an end, E! Online confirmed on Thursday.
The resolution grants Dell expanded visitation rights and legal recognition of his paternity of their two-year-old daughter, Krishna, who will now carry both Lakshmi's and Dell's last names.
Lakshmi has made peace with the resolution: "[Krishna] just turned 2 years old and she's a beautiful, healthy, happy baby, and I didn't lose anything," she told "Extra" in an interview posted Friday. "There was nothing to lose -- she's a delight and joy."
Dell, a venture capitalist and brother of computer mogul Michael Dell, filed for full custody of the baby in January 2011, claiming that Lakshmi had tried to "minimize, if not eliminate [his] role in Krishna's life."
