Mindy Kaling welcomes birth of baby girl Katherine
The Mindy Project star gave birth to a baby girl named Katherine Kaling. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October, Kaling revealed that she was expecting a girl and dished on what it was like to have none other than her.
“She did announce it,” the Champions creator told Ellen DeGeneres, stifling a laugh. “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.” At the September party for the final season premiere of The Mindy Project, Kaling’s costars had nothing but supportive things to say about their showrunner becoming a mother.
She, however has not named the father yet. Kaling dated her Office co-star BJ Novak from 2005 to 2007 and then Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012.
