Mindy Kaling was pretty hush-hush about her pregnancy. She didn’t go full-on Anna Kournikova and keep it a secret, but she didn’t subscribe to the fame whore school of pregnancy by hrowing up hourly bump pics on Instagram. I figured Mindy might keep the birth quiet and just randomly show up a year from now pushing a kid in a stroller. I was wrong; it happened, and we’ve got some news about Mindy’s new baby.
People says that 38-year-old Mindy gave birth to a daughter on Friday morning in Los Angeles and named her Katherine Swati Kaling. Shortly after news broke of Mindy’s pregnancy, it was rumored nobody – not even her close friends – would know who the daddy was. Mindy really made sure that her baby’s father’s name doesn’t get out there by leaving him off of the birth certificate.
Back to the name, Swati was the name of Mindy’s late mother. It’s always a little unsettling when a famous person doesn’t name their child something ridiculous, like Paper or Whisk. Katherine Kaling is a legitimately normal name. And I can appreciate that her initials are the same as Kelly Kapoor. Even if Kelly would never choose Katherine over the much classier and sophisticated Usher Jennifer Hudson Kapoor.
The vaginas are coming! The vaginas are coming! The trailer for the long awaited (ok, sustained indifferenced) Ocean’s 8 is here and it’s got more vaginas than a Amazonian gynecology conference! As expected, it stars Sandra Bullock as the titular Ocean (1) and includes Cate Blanchett as some kind of badass (2), Mindy Kaling as some kind of jeweler (3), Rihanna as some kind of hacker (4), Helena Bonham Carter as Helena Bonham Carter (5), Sarah Paulson as a suburban mom with a criminal past (6), Awkwafina as a street grifter (don’t ask me I have no idea who she is either, 7) and that’s only 7 so what the fuck? Yes, Anne Hathaway is in it but she appears to be the target so I’m confused.
Forbes has spoken and Sofia Vergara is still the reigning queen of getting those duckets! She’s been named the highest paid TV actress of 2017 proving once again, immigrants, they get the job done. This makes six years in a row that Sofia’s been the richest bitch in the TV game.
We recently learned that Mindy Kaling is pregnant. The circumstances of said pregnancy were vague; all we knew was that it was an “unexpected surprise.” And now, in a move that would no doubt make Kelly Kapoor wish she’d thought of it first, we’re learning that nobody is going to know whose sperm helped make that baby happen.
When I think of an actress who wants to keep the identity of their baby a secret, I think of January Jones. But then I also picture January Jones as being the type who might get a little wine-drunk by the pool, lean in close to a friend and go “Okay, you wanna know a secret?” while offering a curved pinky finger to swear on. But apparently Mindy won’t be that type of friend. A source tells People that Mindy just started sharing the news that she’s pregnant, but that’s all she’s sharing.
“She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is.”
I hope Mindy takes this secret one step farther and writes “Yeah, nice try” for the father’s name on the birth certificate.
Mindy’s friends might not ever learn who the father is, but I can see some people trying. Like Mindy’s A Wrinkle in Time co-star Oprah would totally take this on as a challenge. Everyone talks to Oprah, right? She’ll invite Mindy over for lunch, where she’ll be greeted at the door by Stedman, who will clip a mic to her shirt collar and give her a quick spritz of hairspray. Then she’ll be led to a softly-lit living room and seated in a comfortable chair across from Oprah in her best “Let’s be honest” cardigan. Don’t do it Mindy, it’s a trap!
Mindy Kaling is pregnant and oh my god, I am so here for the adorable baby outfits that are sure to come! E! News reports:
An insider explained that the future arrival for the 38-year-old actress was “an unexpected surprise” but that there will not be any changes made to production schedules for her upcoming projects.
Mindy has been busy promoting her upcoming film A Wrinkle in Time, which co-stars Reese Witherspoon (also known as The Notorious LJP), and bee summoner Oprah Winfrey. The big budget Disney film is directed by Ava Duvernay. The sixth and final season of The Mindy Project (on which Mindy is creator, producer, writer and star) will debut this September. Did you know? – Every time a hard working, talented celebrity has a baby, a Kardashian ovary shrivels up. It’s how the universe stays in balance.
We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
