These Tweets About Mindy Kaling Giving Birth Will Literally Make Your Day


Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of us, because Mindy Kaling just gave us a very special little gift. According to E! News, Kaling gave birth to her first child, a daughter named Katherine Kaling, on Dec. 15, 2017. Both mom and baby are doing well, and fans couldn't help but lose it on Twitter over their excitement. These tweets about Mindy Kaling giving birth prove fans are so, so happy for The Mindy Project star.

We first received reports that 38-year-old Kaling was expecting her first child back in July of 2017. The actress finally confirmed the news in August on NBC's Sunday Today with Willie Geist and mentioned how excited she was to become a mom. She said,

Becoming a mom is also incredibly special to Kaling because of her own mother, who she unfortunately lost in 2012 after her battle with pancreatic cancer. She told Geist,

And you know it's only right that Kaling was already joking about the new things she'll gain as a new parent (you know, besides the baby itself). She said,

We're sure Kaling is already one amazing mom. And fans are absolutely thrilled for her, as Twitter has already proved.

It's no secret that Kaling wanted to have children. In 2015, she told Yahoo! Style,

Becoming a mom is just the cherry on top of what has been an amazing year for Kaling. The actress wrapped up The Mindy Project in November of 2017, which she created and starred in. In May, she was also greenlit by NBC for a new show called Champions, and we're all anxiously awaiting more details on it.

Kaling is also on track to absolutely crush 2018. In the past 24 hours alone, besides hearing news of her baby's birth, we've seen Kaling in the epic Ocean's 8 trailer and on the cover of TIME Magazine with her A Wrinkle In Time co-stars Oprah, Reese Witherspoon, and Storm Reid.

The woman is absolutely unstoppable.

There's no doubt that her peers are also so, so excited for her. Ed Weeks, who played Dr. Jeremy Reed on The Mindy Project, spoke to media at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview event earlier this year and recounted what happened when Kaling told her co-workers she was expecting. Weeks said,

Congratulations, Mindy, and welcome to the world, Katherine!
