'Top Chef' judge Tom Colicchio and wife Lori Silverbush expecting child

By Christopher Rocchio, 07/19/2009 

Tom Colicchio is apparently ready for a second helping of fatherhood.

The Top Chef judge and his wife Lori Silverbush are expecting their first child together, People reported Friday.

"We're having a boy," Colicchio told People, adding a name has also already been chosen for the baby, who is due in early August.

"We're keeping it under wraps.  Our parents don't know the name yet."

Colicchio -- who has a 16-year-old son from a previous relationship -- added that there's no pressure on his kids to follow in dad's culinary footsteps.

"He could do whatever!" he told People. "[Both sons] can do whatever they'd like to do as long as they're happy."

It's been a good week for Colicchio, as Top Chef received two Emmy award nominations earlier this week.

Colicchio personally received a nod along with Padma Lakshmi in the Outstanding Host For A Reality Or Reality-Competition Program category -- a surprising nomination considering his Top Chef role is billed as lead judge and mentor, not as a "co-host."

Regardless, Colicchio is still excited about the recognition.

"It feels great!" he told People.
