When Bravo's Top Chef Season 16 premieres on December 6 at 9/8c, viewers might notice that the show is missing one ingredient. Longtime judge Gail Simmons didn't join the gang in Kentucky to film the new season — but she has a good reason for it.
On May 23, the Bringing it Home author gave birth to her second child, son Kole Jack Abrams. Shortly after Kole's birthday, Gail shared a snap of his teeny fingers clutching her thumb. "He's here! And he's a keeper," she shared then. And on November 29, we got another peek at Gail's adorable baby boy.
In a throwback Instagram snap, the foodie shared a photo of her then-newborn son snuggling up to her husband, Jeremy Abrams. Sunlight streamed into the pic, forming rainbows on the newborn's back and his sweet, fuzzy head. "September. My boys, in the last of the good summer light," Gail wrote.
