Mindy Kaling has reportedly given birth.
The 38-year-old actress is believed to have welcomed a baby girl into the world last week on December 15, according to a report by E! News.
The publication also states she has named her new arrival Katherine Kaling, although the star herself has not yet confirmed the tot’s birth.
Mindy announced her pregnancy back in August this year, and stated in October that she was ”having a great time” being pregnant, as she had begun to realise she took a lot of things for granted before her stomach started to swell.
‘The Mindy Project’ star said: ”I’m very, very pregnant. I’ve had a pretty great time of it so far, but I think I took a lot for granted before this, now that I’m in my current situation. Like, sitting, I’m obsessed with sitting and even when I was standing back there I was looking at this chair and I was like, ‘Awww, can’t wait to sit in that chair!”’
Mindy’s pregnancy announcement was somewhat dampened when her ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ co-star Oprah Winfrey managed to let the news slip prior to her official announcement, but Mindy insisted she wasn’t upset about the gaffe, as she can now tell her daughter the story involving legendary talk show host.
She said: ”At first I was like, OK if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey’s the person. You can’t complain that much about it, and you can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it!’ because she’s almost like a religious figure. I thought, ‘OK, if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter who revealed her existence to the world, Oprah’s pretty good.”’
The star also previously admitted to feeling ”anxious” about entering motherhood.
She said: ”Right now, I just feel so anxious. But, I’d like to be the fun mom. I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So, if I could be kind of fun, too, I think that would be nice.”
