At the end of July, Oprah Winfrey accidentally let slip that Mindy Kaling, actor and star of The Mindy Project, was five months pregnant. And on August 13, Kaling confirmed that she is expecting a baby.
"It's so unknown to me," Kaling said of motherhood. "I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life and this is one where it's just like 'Ok! It's out of my hands.' Which is a fun feeling."
"She just loved us and really wanted us to be happy, no matter what we did," she said. "My career choice was not something she was familiar with, and she was just so supportive of that, and if I can give that to my child – just that open-mindedness – I'd be so happy."
Happier about Mindy Kaling being pregnant than I would be about someone I actually know— Rachel Simon (@Rachel_Simon) July 17, 2017
