gail simmons first baby daughter gi 'Top Chef's' Gail Simmons welcomes first child with husband Jeremy Abrams

Congratulations to Gail Simmons — she welcomed her first child before 2013 ended.

The “Top Chef” judge gave birth to her daughter Dahlia Rae on Dec. 29, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The baby weighed 7 lbs, 3 oz., and is the first for the reality TV star and her husband Jeremy Abrams.

“Mother, father and baby are doing wonderfully,” Simmons’ rep says in a statement.

Congrats to the new parents, who waited to find out the sex of the baby until the birth. We know that the little girl is going to be one well-fed baby.

“Top Chef New Orleans” airs Wednesdays on Bravo.
