It’s a very merry Christmas for famous actress Mindy Kaling this year! E-News reported that on Friday, December 15th the acclaimed actress gave birth to a baby girl named Katherine.
News broke about Kaling’s pregnancy in the fall. She said that it was an “unexpected surprise” and she kept it a secret for a couple of months before making any confirmations.
Kaling was optimistic about becoming a mother. She told NBC, “I’d like to be the fun mom, I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So if I can be kind of fun too, I think that would be nice.”
The TV star has often stayed private in regard to her personal life. She still has not revealed the identity of the baby’s father yet. A source told Entertainment Weekly that Kaling would not even tell close friends who the father is.
She admitted in September that her romantic life is “more mysterious,” compared to her professional life which she feels she has control over, which is part of the reason that she likes to keep it more behind the scenes.
In October, Kaling revealed the gender of her baby to Oprah Winfrey.
She said, “I am not waiting. I wanted to know way early.”
Ever since news broke of Kaling’s pregnancy, friends, costars, and fans have been excited for her.
Costar Beth Grant said, “She’s going to be the greatest mom in the world. I am just so happy for her.”
Rebecca Rittenhouse said, “She’s such a fearless leader, and she’s so strong, and smart and intelligent. I want her to be my mom, because she’s so incredible. But I will settle for her being my friend.”
Congrats to the actress on her new bundle of joy! In other recent news, a star athlete just gave away a $10M home to a Christian camp for kids with disabilities.
