Mindy Kaling Welcomes Third Baby in February!

Mindy Kaling has announced she has welcomed a third child.

The Office alum revealed she welcomed a daughter named Anne in late February following a secret pregnancy in an Instagram post shared on Monday.

Kaling announced the joyous news on her 45th birthday, June 24, calling Anne ‘the best birthday present I could’ve ever imagined.’

‘In late February I gave birth to my daughter, Anne. She’s the best birthday present I could’ve ever imagined. When things are hard, whenever I veer towards cynicism, my three kids are such a great reminder of the pure joy in my life,’ she posted to Instagram.

‘I’m so lucky I live in a place where I could do this by myself, on my own timeline. Thanks for all the birthday wishes!’

The post included a snap of Mindy’s baby bump, along with a sweet snap of her two other children – daughter Katherine, six, and son Spencer, three – bonding with their new sibling. 

The post also contained an image of Mindy sitting in the hospital bed, surrounded by her two children. 

Mindy has yet to disclose the father of her children, and told The New York Times in 2019, before her son was born: ‘My feeling is that, until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it.’

However, her Office co-star, B.J. Novak, is notably godfather to Katherine and Spencer.

In August 2022, Kaling informed Entertainment Tonight , ‘He’s very good with children. He literally wrote a best-selling book called The Book With No Pictures for kids.’

The creator of Never Have I Ever added, ‘It comes very innately to him, you know, like being with children. So he’s a great godfather.’

Rumors have circulated that Novak is the father of Katherine and Spencer, which the actress has shut down.

She previously addressed the speculation during an interview with Marie Claire and revealed, ‘It doesn’t bother me. He’s the godparent to both my kids – and they have such a great relationship.’

The Ocean’s 8 actress previously opened up about her decision to become a mother during an interview with Glamour in 2019, telling the magazine: ‘I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but I would have put it off and put it off. I’m happy that it happened when it did.’

‘I would have put it off indefinitely. I’ve seen firsthand the heartbreak of women who have waited to get pregnant [and then it doesn’t happen].

She said her late mother Swati – who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2012 – was a huge inspiration to her, explaining: ‘For me, my relationship with my mother was such an integral part of my life.

‘Thinking back on our relationship is still such a huge source of my happiness day-to-day, so I’m so grateful for having Katherine.’
