As an incredibly private mom, we weren’t too surprised when Mindy Kaling announced on an episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert that she secretly welcomed a baby boy in September 2020.
While we don’t know much about her family life, “The Office” alum has shared tidbits here and there about raising her children that have kept our curious minds at bay. Kaling was most recently featured on Meghan Markle’s Archetypes podcast series, where she spoke candidly about the stress she endured as a single woman becoming a mother. “There’s also a whole Indian angle to choosing to have your own kids,” she told Markle. “I haven’t been to India since then [I was] 14 but you start thinking, ‘OK, what do my relatives in India think about this? Does this embarrass our family immensely that I made this decision?’”
She continued, “And I think I can drive myself crazy if I think about these things too much… I can’t think about it anymore. I just have to live my life to make myself and the people in my immediate family happy.”
