“It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent. So, one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parents because I will have a child,” Kaling joked during a Today show interview in September. “I’d like to be the fun mom. I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So, if I could be kind of fun, too, I think that would be nice.”

Her costars have been very supportive on Kaling becoming a mother.

“She’s going to be the greatest mom in the world. I am just so happy for her,” Beth Grant, who plays Beverly told PEOPLE.

Congrats Mindy!
