Mindy Kaling has been pretty mum on her pregnancy, allowing her beloved coworkers to dish on details. First, Oprah let slip that Kaling was several months into her pregnancy. Now, two of her co-stars on “The Mindy Project” have revealed the big news: Kaling is having a girl!
Beth Grant, who plays the unhinged-but-in-a-cute-way Beverly, got emotional, saying “I cried like a baby and that it’s a girl. I just think that she’s up to it. I just think that she’s ready, and I’m very happy for her.”
Ed Weeks, who plays the delightfully absurd Jeremy — really, “The Mindy Project” is a cast of overtly sitcom-y characters — noted that having a girl is a bit full circle for Kaling. The show started as a tribute to her mother, who very sadly passed away just as the show is being picked up, and it ends with her having a daughter of her own. It’s a lot,” he explained.
“When she reminded us all of that, we all cried in the final table read. I mean, Jesus, life! It makes some very interesting and beautiful patterns sometimes.” Aw.
Now, I’m just wondering who in the hell is going to tell us who the father is. I don’t even care that much, but it feels intensely personal that Kaling isn’t telling us her private business, you know?
