Mindy Kaling has finally done me a favor and confirmed that SHE IS pregnant! The inspiring writer spoke about becoming a mother during a sit-down interview on the Sunday Today show, airing September 10th. I have a clip inside!
It all started back in July, when I caught wind of the rumor Mindy Kaling was expecting. Although she hadn’t yet confirmed, people not only said they saw a baby bump but then her Wrinkle in Time co-star, Oprah Winfrey, tattled that she’s five months pregnant. Again, Kaling still hadn’t confirmed the news…until today. While chatting with Sunday Today, the 38 year-old not only confirmed her pregnancy, but spoke it saying, “I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, “OK, it’s out of my hands,” which is kind of a fun feeling.”
What’s out of her hands? The fact that you need a husband to have baby? Okay, a man. Or, the fact that she doesn’t know what to expect during her pregnancy journey. Shoot, maybe both. Kaling also credited her mom’s support to her and how she strives to be just like her, “My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy.”
I am so happy for Mindy. I’m such a fan of her writing and you guys know I ADORE writers (of course). Not only that but she’s a 38 year-old successful and single woman proving you can have it all, whether there is a man involved or not. But, hopefully there is, a man involved.
