Mindy Kaling is having a girl! The actress, who is expecting her first child, confirmed the sex of her baby during a recent appearance on The Ellen Show. Though there have been previous reports on Kaling having a daughter, this marks the fist time she's addressed the baby's sex publicly.
"I am not waiting [to find out the baby's sex]. I wanted to know way early," Kaling told Ellen DeGeneres. "I'm having a girl."
She also joked about how she's dealing with being pregnant for the first time. "I've had a pretty great time of it so far, but I think I took a lot for granted before this, now that I'm in my current situation. Like sitting. I'm obsessed with sitting," she said.
News of Kaling's pregnancy accidentally revealed Kaling was five months pregnant.
"At first it was like, okay, if anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person. You can't complain that much about it," she told DeGeneres." You also can't be like, 'Hey Oprah, zip it!' because she's almost like a religious figure."
But Kaling found a silver lining to Winfrey's accidental reveal: "If there's one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah is pretty good."
