The majority of celebrity gossip spread around Hollywood tends to be negative. “I heard he cheated on her” or “she’s stepping out on him” so on and so forth. So, when we happen to come across a positive rumor—say, one of our favorite TV stars being pregnant with her first child—we can’t help but hope the gossip has some truth behind it.
Fortunately, this appears to be the case with the news of Mindy Kaling’s pregnancy and we could not be more excited for her!
By now, you’ve probably heard the rumors surrounding Mindy Kaling’s pregnancy.
Of course, we were more than excited to hear of a new Kaling on the way, but the star had yet to confirm the pregnancy herself. So, we’ve been doing our best not to get too excited.
That was, until Oprah let it slip that The Office star was supposedly 5 months along.
Winfrey learned the news from Kaling herself while the two were working on set together for an upcoming rendition of A Wrinkle In Time.
Finally, Kaling confirmed her bun in the oven during an interview with Sunday TODAY.
YAY!!! We’re so happy for you Mindy ❤️
Naturally, her fans (us included) are beyond thrilled.
Kaling says she’s very excited about her journey into motherhood.
The mommy-to-be is looking forward to navigating this unknown territory and letting her body take control.
In typical Mindy fashion, she also jokes about what aspect of parenting she’s most thrilled about.
Talk about some serious parenting goals. Guaranteed, every mom has this thought cross their mind.
Kaling then talks about her hope to emulate the strong relationship she had with her own mom, who passed away in 2012.
“She just loved us and really wanted us to be happy, no matter what we did,” Mindy said. “My career choice was not something she was familiar with, and she was just so supportive of that, and if I can give that to my child – just that open-mindedness – I’d be so happy.”
Safe to say, the adorable baby Kaling will have one kick-ass mom.
