Mumbai: Indian American model, TV host, author and activist Padma Lakshmi hopes to become the oldest Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model in history. The 52-year-old model has said she would love to replace Martha Stewart in the record books, when the 81-year-old TV star appears on the cover of the 2023 Swimsuit issue, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Asked if she wanted to leave Martha’s record behind, Padma told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six style column, “I hope so. I mean, listen, if I’m still covering like That he’s at 80 plus. I mean, gosh. .” , more power to him. And he’s always been someone I’ve admired, so why should this be any different?”
Padma appeared in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. However, he never expected it to happen so late in his career. Padma shared, “I thought it would happen to me one day when I was in my 20s and 30s and was a model, but it never happened, so I really thought the ship had sailed. So It’s almost sweet to happen at this age.”
Earlier this month, Martha called it a “kind of surprise” to land the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover. The businesswoman is proud of her swimsuit cover – but it wasn’t something she ever imagined.
