MINDY Kaling is an actress, writer, comedian – and mother.
The versatile and talented Kaling is best known for acting and writing in the NBC hit show The Office.
How many children does Mindy Kaling have?
Kaling, who is 41, has two young children – Katherine and Spencer.
She secretly gave birth to Spencer earlier this year.
Kaling’s first child was born in December of 2017 – but the identity of Katherine’s father has not been revealed.
Fans have suspected that the dad of one or both of Mindy’s children is pal BJ Novak, though it seems unlikely as the actor is Katherine’s godfather.
Kaling shared the news of the birth of her second child while appearing on The Late Show earlier this year.
Before she announced the news, host Stephen Colbert said: “I got something I rarely get these days, which is good news, so 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.”
The Office star continued: “Yes, I’m telling it for the first time now. It feels so strange.
“I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3.”
Adding that the pregnancy was a secret, she continued: “This is news to a lot of people. It’s true!”
The proud mom added: “His name is Spencer. I forgot the most important part of it.”
She said giving birth during the coronavirus pandemic was scary, but added Spencer was doing well.
She told Elle that it was not difficult to hide the pregnancy.
It was not too bad,” she told the magazine.
“I mean, clearly, I was not going anywhere, like everybody else, so nobody found me out.
“So that was kind of easy. And then just being at home and taking photos, I’d largely just kind of shot around my pregnancy.
“Shot myself from the waist up and then also wore baggy things. I never got super huge, so it was a little bit easier.”
It is not known who Spencer’s father is.
What has Mindy said about being a single mom?
The actress continues to love being a mother.
She discussed the differences between having a first and second child in the interview with Elle.
“The first time it was like every person in my life came out of the woodwork to send gifts and cards and notes and emails,” she told the magazine.
“And then once you have a second kid, everyone’s like, you’re fine.
“You’re okay. It’s definitely more of a muted excitement from everyone in my life. Which, by the way, makes total sense, particularly during a pandemic.
“In terms of a boy, no, not yet. I mean, he’s still so little. I think he’s like seven weeks old so I haven’t really seen what his personality is going to be like, but I do know that my daughter really likes the fact that he’s a boy.
“I think she feels a little bit less competitive.”
Is Mindy Kaling married?
Kaling has been linked to Novak, but it is not believed that she is married.
She told US Weekly that as a single mom she works “extremely hard.”
“It’s like, work hard, play hard. I definitely work more hard than I play hard,” she told the outlet.
“And so I think that’s not bad. I think that I have never gotten anything easily and that’s OK!”
