Mindy Kaling Casually Reveals She Gave Birth to a Baby Boy Last Month

Actress Mindy Kaling has announced that she gave birth to her second child last month. Surprising fans with the unsuspected baby news, the comedy star confirmed that she gave birth to a son named Spencer in September. Mindy had made news of her pregnancy public, but made the lovely announcement during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert this week. "I'm telling it for the first time, it feels strange but I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3," Mindy, who is known for playing Kelly Kapoor in the US version of sitcom The Office, revealed. "This is news to a lot of people, it's true." Mindy is also mother to a two-year-old daughter named Katherine but has never shown the little one's face publicly or announced the identity of her father in order to maintain privacy.

However, she has revealed in the past that her former The Office co-star BJ Novak is Katherine's godfather. "He's the godfather to my daughter, he comes over like once a week. Lots of fans were left shocked by the baby news, taking to social media to express their surprise. 'Mindy Kaling had a secret baby a month ago?!?!?,' one wrote. A surprise secret baby!' A third wondered, 'Wait I just read that Mindy Kaling just had another baby.

Ever since Mindy Kaling gave birth to her daughter in 2017, she has publicly prided herself on being a strong single mom and rightfully so. Her journey through motherhood has been marred only by those who still have questions about the identity of her babies' fathers, as she has never said who the man or men are herself. Because when Mindy announced in October 2020 that she had a son in September 2020, she remained equally as tight-lipped. Mindy Kaling's secret-keeping is right up there with that of a 14-year-old girl with a strict dermatologist mom. The actress and author of new essay collection Nothing Like I Imagined announced the arrival of her second child, a baby boy named Spencer, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday night.

"I'm telling it for the first time now, it feels so strange," she began, "but I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3." Kaling admitted, "This is news to a lot of people." Kaling is already mom to 2-and-a-half-year-old Katherine, who is warming up to her little brother. "She was very ambivalent at first, to be generous," Kaling told the late-night host. Kaling's first pregnancy also came as a surprise to fans, especially considering Kaling's A Wrinkle in Time co-star, Oprah Winfrey herself, let it slip. Fans willed the father to be Kaling's The Office love interest, actor B.J. Novak, but, in reality, he takes on the role of godfather for both her kids, Kaling told Colbert. Mindy Kaling has surprised fans by announcing she has given birth to her second child.

The Office star said she welcomed her son, who is named Spencer, on 3 September. Kaling shared the news during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. "I got something I rarely get these days, which is good news, so if you wouldn't mind sharing with our audience I think they'd be thrilled to find out something extraordinary that nobody knows up until this moment," Colbert said during the virtual interview. It feels so strange," Kaling replied. "But I gave birth to a baby boy on 3 September." Colbert remarked how "no one even knew" that she was expecting, to which Kaling said:"I know!

Kaling already has a two-year-old daughter, named Katherine. The comedy writer has never shared a picture of her daughter's face or the identity of the child's biological father, saying it was important to maintain some privacy. Explaining her decision during an interview with the New York Times in 2019, Kaling said: "My feeling is that, until I speak to my daughter about that, I'm not going to talk to anyone else about it." However, she has revealed her former The Office co-star BJ Novak is Katherine's godfather. "The truth is that BJ is so much more like family now than a platonic friend," Kaling told Good Housekeeping. "He's the godfather to my daughter, he comes over like once a week. The Ocean's 8 star previously opened up about her decision to become a mother during an interview with Glamour in 2019. I'm happy that it happened when it did," she said. I've seen first-hand the heartbreak of women who have waited to get pregnant [and then it doesn't happen]." Kaling's announcement comes just days after fellow actor Amanda Seyfried revealed she had given birth to her second child, after keeping her pregnancy a secret from the public. The Mamma Mia star shared the news in a joint statement with her husband Thomas Sadoski to charitable organisations INARA (International Network for Aid, Relief and Assistance) and War Child. "Since the birth of our daughter 3 years ago our commitment to the innocent children that are so brutally affected by conflict and war has been a driving force in our lives," they said. Mindy Kaling has given birth to a baby boy, she revealed during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday.

Mindy Kaling announced she's welcomed her second child, a baby boy named Spencer, during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Thursday. Kaling, like Amanda Seyfried, didn't reveal her pregnancy to the public, which frankly seems like the most pleasant way to go about it. "I'm telling it for the first time now, it feels so strange. But I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3," Kaling told host Colbert, who commented, "No one even knew you were pregnant!" Kaling responded, "I know! This is news to a lot of people. Spencer's a little brother to Kaling's 2-year-old daughter, Katherine, who she welcomed in December 2017. Speaking to Glamour last year, Kaling discussed becoming a parent, and, for her, the illusion of the "right time." "I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but I would have put it off and put it off," she said. Kaling also reflected on becoming a mom after losing her own to cancer in 2012. "Thinking back on our relationship is still such a huge source of my happiness day to day, so I'm so grateful for having Katherine."
