Ever since she was a child, Kiwi cooking star Nadia Lim has been happiest in the kitchen. But lately the culinary queen’s been searching for excuses to stay away from the stove. It’s a bit of an inconvenience for someone whose bread and butter is, well, bread and butter, but finally Nadia is able to lift the lid on her little secret – she’s pregnant!
“I’ve felt so queasy and for weeks I just couldn’t stand any food smells at all,” she laughs as she and husband Carlos Bagrie share their happy news with Woman’s Day.
“My workmates must have wondered what was going on because I’d suddenly disappear whenever there was recipe testing to be done. I went for three weeks straight without cooking anything at all. It was quite bizarre.”
At 17 weeks pregnant, Nadia is beaming as she shows off her cute baby bump. She and Carlos – co-founders of mega-successful meal-delivery company My Food Bag – are at their Sydney apartment, where they’re spending half their time as they launch the business in Australia. With her morning sickness finally behind her, Nadia’s back to her bubbly self and thrilled to celebrate
her baby news.
