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

Being pregnant is usually something that’s hard for a mom-to-be to hide, especially if that mom-to-be is a famous actress, but the pandemic has changed that. With celebrities sticking close to home like the rest of us, and with the majority of production shut down, we haven’t seen many stars recently except for what they’re willing to share on social media.

Mindy Kaling has a 2 and a half year old daughter named Katherine. She hinted on Instagram that she had some “big news” to share on the “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” but from the picture the posted, she gave nothing away.

Kaling surprised everyone when she announced that she had been pregnant through the entire pandemic and gave birth to a baby boy named Spencer on September 3rd. She shared in a follow-up Instagram post that “Spencer is happy and healthy and his sister is obsessed with him.”

Many of Kaling’s followers are wishing her well on Instagram and congratulating her not only on the new addition to her family but on keeping her pregnancy private and keeping her children out of the spotlight.

One follower wrote, “Ok this will make me sound like a total stalker but I went back to look at all your pics from the past 5 months and I still can’t see any baby bump. Congratulations, and nice job keeping it private!”

Another comment reads, “I admire your dedication to respecting the privacy of your children …even us non famous people could take note and keep our little ones a little more protected. Congratulations.”
