Mindy Kaling confirmed for the first time to Sunday TODAY‘s Willie Geist that she is pregnant in a segment to air Sept. 10.
The Mindy Project actress said she is really excited about being a mom and said she is relaxed about the situation.
“It’s so unknown to me. 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,” she told Geist.
As to what kind of mother she’ll be she gave a nod to her own late mother saying she set an incredible example.
Kaling also joked about the one thing she is looking forward to as a mom – getting to legitimately make fun of other moms:
“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 parenting because I will have a child.”
As for who the dad is, Kaling is keeping silent. Speculation across the internet has people wondering if New Jersey Senator Cory Booker could be the man. However, a source told RadarOnline back in July, “Her love life has been all over the place and she can’t quite place the guy to the time of conception. So this is a hot mess.”
Whomever the father is, the baby couldn’t ask for a better mom.
