Mindy Kaling Has Given Birth to Her Second Child After a Secret Pregnancy
She also revealed her newborn's name.
Thanks in part to a pandemic during which many of us are encountering each other only on Zoom, certain things are easier to hide — like sweatpants under a fancy top, or in Mindy Kaling's case, a whole pregnancy.
The Mindy Project star and creator dropped a bombshell on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday evening, revealing she just gave birth to her second child last month.
"I got something I rarely get these days, which is some good news, which, if you wouldn’t mind sharing with our audience, I think they’d be thrilled to find out. Something extraordinary that nobody knows up until this moment," Colbert teased during the show.
"Yes! I’m telling it for the first time now. It feels so strange. I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3," Kaling replied.
"No one even knew you were pregnant!" Colbert said, to which Kaling replied, "I know! This is news to a lot of people. It’s true."
Kaling revealed her baby boy's name is Spencer. She also has a two-year-old daughter named Katherine, who was born in December 17. Though she's been private about her personal life with her daughter, Kaling shared a rare photo of herself with Katherine earlier this year from her birthday, as well as a photo earlier this week to discuss why she's voting in this year's presidential election.
Congratulations to Mindy Kaling, who may be the best secret keeper among us all.
