Mindy Kaling welcomed her first child on Friday. The actress is now the proud mom of a daughter named Katherine, it was revealed on Tuesday. The new mother has not commented on her little one’s arrival, though she did take a few days off social media before returning to Twitter on Monday to promote upcoming projects, including A Wrinkle In Time and Ocean’s 8.

It was first speculated Kaling was pregnant when she sported a fuller figure in July at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Despite the number of reports, the actress made no mention of her pregnancy on social media, and when Gossip Cop investigated, a rep for Kaling declined to comment. Weeks later, however, the star finally addressed the baby rumors.

On becoming a mom, Kaling told Willie Geist in an interview on NBC’s “Sunday Today,” “It’s so unknown to me.” She added, “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.” And on parenthood, Kaling joked, “As you know, it’s so easy to criticize parenting until you become 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’ll have a child.”

Kaling went on to speak fondly of her relationship with her own mother. “My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us,” the star shared. “[She] just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did. My career choice was not something 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.”

“The Mindy Project” star has chosen not to share who is the father of her child. In September, we corrected MediaTakeOut for falsely claiming New Jersey Senator Cory Booker was the father of Kaling’s baby. The report was totally bogus. Gossip Cop now wishes Kaling many years of health and happiness with her bundle of joy! E! was first to report the happy news about Kaling giving birth to a baby girl.
