Mindy Kaling is officially a mom! According to E! News, the comedian and actress welcomed a little girl, Katherine, on Dec. 15. Back in August, the "Mindy Project" creator told the "Today" show that she was "really excited" to be a mother -- and I am REALLY excited to watch her raise a little feminist badass who will grow up to be just like her.
The one downside of this baby arriving? We still don't know who the father is. Mindy, girl, I am over-the-moon happy for you. And I realize that it is invasive and insensitive to ask this question (WHO IS IT?!) but alas, here we are. Sometimes you need to ask the hard questions and take one for the team. So, to everyone else reading, you're welcome.
The 38-year-old has been vocal about wanting kids in the past. "I think I've decided that unlike everything else in my life, I'm going to be fast and loose about kids," she said in 2015. "I'm going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen. I'm not cavalier about who I would have a kid with. But the thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier."
Some Kaling fans have been following her since her time on "The Office," where she played Kelly Kapoor from 2005-2013. Many believe Kapoor foreshadowed this pregnancy, since she pretended to be in the family way with Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak).
So who is the father of Kaling's little bundle of joy? We've got a few theories.
