Lesley Suter, the new critic for the upcoming season of Top Chef Masters, is expecting a girl this November, she tells the Dish. And she has her job to thank for her happy news!

"I'm pretty sure I got pregnant the day we shot the finale," she says. "Yes...the meal was that good! So, in a way, I have Top Chef Masters to thank for this kid. Bravo—I'll be sending half the babysitting bills your way!"

Suter, the James Beard Award-winning writer who oversees all dining coverage for Los Angeles Magazine, may be one of the nation's most adventurous foodies. But she hasn't had any strange cravings so far.

"Nothing weird...yet," she says. "Mostly sweets—particularly ice cream. As someone who happens to live within a five minute drive of two Fosters Freeze stands, this could get ugly."
