Mindy Kaling has given birth to a baby girl.
The 38-year-old actress welcomed her first child 10 days before Christmas, and she’s named her newborn Katherine.
Having reportedly given birth on December 15, Mindy has yet to publicly speak about the birth, but has been on social media to promote her new film Ocean’s 8.
Mindy’s pregnancy was confirmed in July, although that news wasn’t broken by her. Instead, her famous pal Oprah Winfrey let it slip.
Speaking about it on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said: ‘She did announce it. If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person.
‘You can’t complain that much about it. And you also can’t be like, “Hey, Oprah, zip it’ — because she’s almost like a religious figure.’
The actress has kept schtum about the baby’s father. ‘She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is,’ a source told People.
Another source said her pregnancy had been an ‘unexpected surprise.’
Kaling had previously said she’d like to be a ‘fun mom’ and that she’s already prepared to be a ‘dorky’ one.
Speaking to Willie Geist for Sunday Today, she said: ‘I’d like to be the fun mom. I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So it could be kind of fun too. I think that would be nice.’
