Mindy Kaling will be the mom of a bouncing baby girl, the actress confirmed during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday,
The Mindy Project star told the talk show host and audience that she wanted to know the gender of her baby “way early.”
“I am not waiting,” she said. “I’m having a girl.”
The 38-year-old funny also addressed reports that Oprah Winfrey spilled the beans on her pregnancy before she did.
“She did announce it,” said Kaling with a laugh. “I had told Oprah and Reese [Witherspoon] on a movie we’re working on, A Wrinkle in Time, and she announced it at press — she was very excited. If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person. You can’t complain that much about it. And you also can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it’ — because she’s almost like a religious figure. So if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah is pretty good.”
