Celebrity chef, Gail Simmons is pregnant with her first child! The 37-year old Top Chef judge and husband of five years Jeremy Abrams‘ will be expecting the baby to arrive this winter.
The couple wed in 2008 and live in Brooklyn, NYC. Jeremy is the head of music programming business Audiostiles and the couple’s nuptials were featured in Martha Stewart‘s Real Weddings magazine.
Simmons, a Toronto native wrote about the proposal in her memoir Talking With My Mouth Full. She explained that Abrams proposed to her when she woke up one morning in bed after 10 days on the road promoting Top Chef. After she accepted his ring, she answered the door and discovered a “full breakfast delivery” from the their favorite NYC eatery, August. “We made it last the whole day, laid out like a picnic on our living room floor,” the Food and Wine editor wrote. It didn’t end there, “Twenty minutes later, the doorbell rang again. Two deliverymen arrived bearing vases full of flowers; huge peonies, dahlias, roses, and hydrangeas. They lasted for days.”
Congratulations to the happy couple!
