Padma Lakshmi's daughter is celebrating another year around the sun!

On Tuesday, the former Top Chef host, 53, shared a series of photos to her Instagram in honor of her daughter Krishna's 14th birthday. Sharing a few throwback pictures of the teenager, whom she calls "Little Hands," the proud mom took a minute to reflect on how proud she is of her daughter in her caption.

"There are thousands of words I could say about how proud I am to be your mother and to watch you grow. Happy birthday to my #littlehands!" Lakshmi sweetly wrote.

The TV host shares her daughter with businessman Adam Dell.

While walking the red carpet at the 75th Annual Emmy Awards in January, the celebrity chef was photographed with her daughter Krishna. Wearing a bright green Marchesa dress, Lakshmi draped her arm around her daughter, who wore a black dress with feathers up the bottom.

Both mother and daughter wore their hair down, posing for the cameras as they leaned into one another.

Much like her mom, Krishna enjoys spending time in the kitchen — and appearing on her mother's various cooking series. Krishna popped up in a Hanukkah-themed episode of Taste the Nation, given that her father is Jewish.

"Her father's family, originally, is from New York and is Ashkenazi Jewish and did live on the Lower East Side. And so to do an episode about Ashkenazi Jews in New York and pretend that I have no connection to it would've been disingenuous," Padma told PEOPLE during her November 2021 interview.

"It made perfect sense for her to be there at that Hanukkah dinner. And so that's why she's there in that sequence."
