Mindy Kaling has finally opened up about her pregnancy, and admitted that she’s “really excited” about the next chapter of her life.
Last month, it was reported that Mindy is expecting her first child – but the identity of her baby’s father has not yet been revealed.
In a preview for a new Sunday Today interview with NBC’s Willie Geist, Mindy finally confirmed her pregnancy by opening up about the prospect of motherhood.
“It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling,” she explained.
“My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did.
“My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy.”
The comedienne also joked that becoming a mother would allow her to criticise other parents.
“It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent. I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child.”
The full interview will air on September 10.
