The news of actress and producer Mindy Kaling's pregnancy has been unfolding bit by bit, leaving us even more thrilled for The Mindy Project creator with each new detail. As Harper's Bazaar reports, the gender of Kaling's baby has just been revealed, thanks to her co-star Ed Weeks.
"[Mindy] kind of took us aside on set, weirdly in the open-office area where we film most of our scenes," said Weeks to Hello Giggles at the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews yesterday. "She said, 'Guys, I want you to know, I'm pregnant. I haven't told anybody.' And then I think later that day, it broke. … It broke, and nobody knew how it had got out."
Things turned emotional when Weeks mentioned the passing of Kaling's mother at the start of the show, mentioning the sex of the baby in the process. "We were so thrilled for her," he added. "The show started as a tribute to her mother, who very sadly passed away just as the show was being picked up, and ends with her having a daughter of her own. When she reminded us all of that, we all cried in the final table read."
