Congrats to Mindy Kaling!
The 38-year-old actress welcomed her first child, a baby girl named Katherine Kaling on Dec. 15th E News reports.
In July, E! Kaling broke her silence about her pregnancy the following month, saying on NBC’s Today show that she is “really excited” to become a mom.
“I’d like to be the fun mom, I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom,” she added. “So if I can be kind of fun too, I think that would be nice.”
Oprah Winfrey talked to the press about her baby. “At first it was like, ‘OK, if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person,'” Kaling tells Ellen DeGeneres. “You can’t complain that much about it. You also can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it.’ Because she’s almost like a religious figure.”
“I actually thought, ‘Well, OK, if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah’s pretty good,” Kaling added. “At a certain point, I was like, you can’t take it back, so I thought—there are worse things.”
Kaling, has not revealed the identity of her baby’s father.
