Fabio Viviani's Adorable Son Makes His TV Debut

Looks like the #TopChef alum's baby boy is already a star.

By Jocelyn Vena

After making his Instagram debut in early October, Fabio Vivani's newborn son Gage is officially a TV star. The former Top Chef cheftestant showed off his baby boy aka "the latest addition to my Italian pantry" during an appearance on Rachael Ray's talk show on Tuesday (October 27).

How to Watch

Catch up on Top Chef on Peacock or the Bravo App.

And you can bet that little Gage has also inherited his doting dad's love for food. “He's a good eater. For now he’s kind of on a milk diet, that’s the first step to introduce him to cheeses and stuff," Fabio joked. "He’s going to go on sausage and cold cuts very, very soon!”  


Fatherhood has been a hot topic for the celebrity chef as of late. Fabio spoke to The Daily Dish earlier this month about his new role, confirming that his son is "awesome [and] as gorgeous as me." He also shared a rather colorful description of what being a new parent is like. "I'm a new old dad," he joked. "It's like throwing a pool party in a bathtub — it's very tight, it's tiring, and it's an adjustment because it's not something that I've done before. So, a lot of trial and error, but everything looks good so far." But, the bottom line is that Fabio couldn't be any more thrilled with being a dad. "Fatherhood's awesome," he said. "It's the best thing that's ever happened to me."

By the way, a new crop of Cheftestants will be cooking up something when Top Chef returns on December 2. Check out a preview below.
