Mindy Kaling Says It Was 'Kind of Easy' Hiding Her Second Pregnancy From The World

Mindy Kaling is opening up a bit more about welcoming her son, Spencer, in secret earlier this fall.

Speaking with Elle magazine, the 41-year-old The Office alum revealed that it wasn’t actually hard to keep her pregnancy a secret.

“I mean, clearly, I was not going anywhere, like everybody else, so nobody found me out,” Mindy shared with the magazine. “So that was kind of easy. And then just being at home and taking photos, I’d largely just kind of shot around my pregnancy. Shot myself from the waist up and then also wore baggy things.”

“I never got super huge, so it was a little bit easier,” she added.

Mindy also gushed over her baby boy.

“I mean, he’s still so little,” she noted. “I think he’s like seven weeks old, so I haven’t really seen what his personality is going to be like, but I do know that my daughter really likes the fact that he’s a boy. I think she feels a little bit less competitive.”

She adds that Katherine, who goes by the nickname of Kit, was excited about having a sibling.

“When I told her she was going to have a little brother, she didn’t understand he was going to come out a baby,” she shared. “I think she thought he was going to come out two years old, like her.”

Mindy continues, “So, the day before I went to the hospital, she was hiding all of her toys. That was her big thing. We’d be like, ‘Kit, where’s your Elmo?’ And we found it stuffed under the bed because she was hiding it so her brother wouldn’t take it. She was delighted when she found out he was so little and would not be interested in playing with toys for a long, long time. Now she’s really on board with it.”

Just recently, Mindy revealed which of her former co-stars and good friends sent her the best gift after Spencer was born. See who it was here!

Mindy Kaling Reveals Reese Witherspoon Sent Her The Best Gift After The Birth of New Baby Spencer

When Mindy Kaling welcomed her first child, Katherine, she received a pretty amazing gift from her Wrinkle in Time co-star, Oprah Winfrey.

In 2018, while making an appearance on The Late Show, she revealed that Oprah had gifted Kit an ornate wooden bookcase in the shape of a castle, which was packed with children’s literature and each book inscribed with “Katherine’s Book Club.”

“It straight-up sucks compared to what Oprah gave me and I mean that with love,” Mindy told host Stephen Colbert about his own gift to her. “The bookcase was carved in the shape of an old-timey castle. It’s such a nice present! And yours was such a nice present.”

However, this time around with Mindy‘s second child, Reese Witherspoon is the top gifter.

According to her new interview with PopSugar, Reese sent over toys, and clothes, and food for days.

“I felt like the minute I got back from the hospital, there was a gorgeous gift for Spencer, with beautiful clothes and toys,” she shared. “And this is why you know a gift is from Reese Witherspoon — she also got my older kid something.”

Mindy adds, “My daughter, who didn’t do anything, got all these beautiful clothes and toys, too. And she sent us food, so we didn’t have to cook for four days. So, that’s to me just a very Reese Witherspoon-type present where it’s thoughtful but in a very macro way. Like, she really knows what’s going on in your life. That was impressive to me.”

Timothee Chalamet's Sister Pauline To Star in HBO Max Series From Mindy Kaling

Pauline Chalamet, who is Timothee Chalamet‘s sister, has just been cast in Mindy Kaling‘s latest project on HBO Max.

The actress, who has previously starred in The King of Staten Island, will join Amrit Kaur, Reneé Rapp and Alyah Chanelle Scott in The Sex Lives of College Girls.

The series was greenlit for 13 episodes on HBO Max, and Mindy is the series’ executive producer, Variety revealed.

The show centers on four roommates at Essex College, a prestigious New England university, who are described as “equal parts lovable and infuriating.”

Pauline will play Kimberly, who is smart, caring, earnest, and ambitious, she’s prepared for college academically — but not so much socially, and Amrit is Bela, a comedy-obsessed, super confident cornball from the affluent suburbs of northern New Jersey who is never afraid to say what she’s thinking.

Meanwhile, Renee is Leighton, a normal, classy girl from a great family who others think is blunt, judgmental, and beyond entitled; and Alyah will play Whitney, a strong and self-assured with a dry sense of humor, and the only daughter of the most powerful Black senator in the country.

Earlier this year, Pauline was seen out and about with Timothee in New York City. See the pics here…

Mindy also mentioned that her daughter, Katherine loves her little brother.

“Spencer is happy and healthy and his sister is obsessed with him (well, his toys). It’s been so fun having him in the house, I almost forget I’m outnumbered now,” she wrote. “Love and grateful hugs. Xoxo MK.”
