The Mindy Project creator and actress who also stars in the upcoming Oceans 8 film alongside Rihanna and Sandra Bullock has welcomed her first child, a baby girl, named Katherine Kaling.
Kaling’s pregnancy news first broke in July and was confirmed by her close friend Oprah Winfrey but the 38-year old actress has refused to reveal who the father is.
“She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is” said a source who also revealed that the actress was not dating anyone at the time.
“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.
