Mindy Kaling, aka the world’s most low-key pregnant person, has reportedly welcomed her first child.
According to E! News, the 38-year-old Mindy Project creator and star gave birth to a baby girl named Katherine Swati Kaling on December 15. Kaling has yet to publicly reveal who the baby’s father is.
The baby's middle name is a tribute to Kaling's late mom, Dr. Swati Chokalingam, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2012. The actress and producer learned of her mother's death on the same day that The Mindy Project was picked up by Fox. Kaling also honors her mother's legacy by playing an OB/GYN on the series, which her mom was in real life.
News of the comedian’s pregnancy came as a shock to almost everyone when it broke in July. Kaling’s Wrinkle in Time co-stars were blindsided by her announcement.
During an interview in late September, Mindy opened up about motherhood, telling Sunday Today’s Willie Geist, “I know I'm going to be the dorky mom.”
Dorky? Never! We’re betting Mindy’s the coolest (and most stylish) mom around.
We wish mother and daughter all the best. Congratulations, Mindy!
