Mindy Kaling has revealed that she secretly gave birth to a baby boy. The 41-year-old actress dropped the bombshell during an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Thursday during which she shared she had welcomed her second child last month.
“I’m telling it for the first time now, it feels so strange. But I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3,” Kaling told Colbert.
Colbert was taken aback.
“No one even knew you were pregnant!” he exclaimed.
“I know! I know! This is news to a lot of people,” Kaling said. “It’s true.”
“Well, congratulations. That is wonderful” Colbert replied before asking whether Kaling had named her son.
“Yes, oh yes, he has a name, it’s Spencer,” she said excitedly.
Kaling was just as secretive about the birth of her first child, Katherine, 2, in December 2017. She also chose to keep the father’s identity anonymous, reported People.
Earlier this year, the star spoke to the outlet about quarantining with her daughter and the challenges she had faced along the way.
“My child was supposed to start preschool this year. And we were so excited. She was going to go to this school that I love,” Kaling said. “Now I have the writers’ rooms filling up for two of my shows on Zoom, while I’m also leading my child through her day-long preschool. I’m so lucky because I have help. I’m at home all the time, and I don’t want to eat takeout every single night. I have to be a full-time single parent who has to make the money for this household. So it’s been challenging.”
There have been positive aspects to quarantining together though.
“A lot of the stuff I thought was going to drive me crazy about being cooped up with a 2-year-old for seven months has actually bonded us really close together,” she added.
