Mindy Kaling Gives Birth to Baby Girl

Mindy Kaling Did Not List Her Baby's Father on Newborn Daughter's Birth Certificate

Mindy Kaling is a mom! The Mindy Project star gave birth to a baby girl named Katherine Kaling on Dec. 15. Her middle name, Swati, was given in tribute to Mindy's late mother, Swati Roysircar, who passed away in 2012. On the baby's birth certificate, which was obtained by ET, Mindy did not list the father's name, and has yet to reveal any details about his identity (not that she has to).

In October, Mindy confirmed that she was expecting a daughter during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, adding that she wanted to know the sex of her baby "way early." While news first broke in July that Mindy was pregnant, it was actually her A Wrinkle in Time costar Oprah Winfrey who confirmed the news during a press conference at Disney's D23 expo. "If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person," she joked at the time. Congrats to Mindy on her new bundle of joy!
