Mindy Kaling is ready to be a mom! The 38-year-old actress appeared on Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show where she opened up about her first pregnancy and the end of her show The Mindy Project.
“I’m very, very pregnant,” she teased, adding of her pregnancy, “I’ve had a pretty great time of it so far, but I think I took a lot for granted before this, now that I’m in my current situation. Like, sitting, I’m obsessed with sitting and even when I was standing back there I was looking at this chair and I was like, ‘Awww, can’t wait to sit in that chair!’”
Noting that she wanted to know her baby’s gender “way early,” Kaling confirmed the reports that she’s having a baby girl. She also opened up about her co-star Oprah Winfrey spilling the beans on her pregnancy.
“At first I was like, OK if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey’s the person,” she said. “You can’t complain that much about it, and you can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it!’ because she’s almost like a religious figure. I thought, ‘OK, if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter who revealed her existence to the world, Oprah’s pretty good.’”
