Mindy Kaling Reveals Son Spencer's Middle Name After Commenter Says Her Kids Have 'Very Caucasian Names'

Mindy Kaling just revealed her newborn son Spencer‘s middle name is response to a comment that said she named her kids with “very Caucasian names.”

It all started when Mindy announced her Vogue India cover, writing, “I was so excited to be asked to be the cover of @vogueindia’s December issue but seriously nervous because I would have to shoot it six weeks after giving birth to my son Spencer. I was not feeling body confident, and even considered saying no. But @katiegreenthal and Vogue surrounded me with talented and wonderful people, and now I’m thrilled I have these photos as a memento of this very specific time in my life. ‘Post partum pandemic fabulous’ is what I like to call it.”

One commenter posted, “Not my business but do your children have Indian middle names? You are proud of your culture and I was wondering why the kids have very Caucasian names.” Mindy then responded! Mindy already revealed that her two-year-old daughter’s full name is Katherine Swati.

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!
