Introducing Top Chef Season 16's Chefs

As if Sara Bradley wasn't already living her best life as one of the contestants competing in Season 16 of Bravo's Top Chef, the Kentucky native just announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Austin Martin.

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef on Bravo and next day on Peacock.

The Cheftestant shared the happy news in a post on Instagram on Monday, December 17. In the post, Sara referenced a recent article on UPRoxx that dubbed her the "Party Mom" of Season 16 of Top Chef, even though this was before the world knew she would be welcoming her first child. "Say hi to the newest cook in the kitchen, Lula Bea. Premiering May 2019," Sara shared in a post that featured a sonogram of her baby. She also included "#whatayear" in the post, and she's not kidding!

When Sara isn't competing on Top Chef, she is the chef and proprietor at freight house, which is located in Paducah, Kentucky and is also run by her mom, Bev "Bebe" Bradley. Sara's husband, Austin, is "a farmer who doubles as an attorney," according to a September 2017 profile on Sara in the Chicago Tribune.

Sara and Austin wed on October 28, 2017 in her hometown of Paducah. "Best decision I ever made. Happy one year anniversary my love!!" Sara commemorated her first wedding anniversary on Instagram in October. "Thank you for supporting me and holding my hand in every adventure. I’m excited for all the days to come."
