Mindy Kaling and her second delivery

Mindy Kaling‘s first child daughter Katherine arrived in December 2017. And now she delivered her second baby. It is a boy and she has named him Spencer. Mindy Kaling made the surprise announcement on the show The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on 8 October 2020.

But she revealed that the child was born on 3 September 2020 which means that it has been over a month that she kept this childbirth a secret. Mindy had not even announced her pregnancy to her fans. Revealing the reason for it, she said that there is so much heartbreak around. Hence during such a time, she did want to publicize her pregnancy:

“There was so much going on, so much heartbreak in the world that it felt strange to go out of my way to shine a light on some giant health information,”

Further, the new mother said:

“Saying ‘my son’ feels very formal,”

She feels that saying my daughter sounds more contemporary but saying my son seems very old-timey.

When Mindy was pregnant with baby no. 2, her daughter Katherine had an ambivalent response to it, revealed Mindy. She said that at first, her daughter’s reaction was very generous. Mindy elaborated:

“She was really worried about her toys getting taken.”
