Mindy Kaling has officially confirmed her pregnancy, which has been a circulating rumor for the last few weeks. In a clip from an upcoming interview with Today, one of our favorite comedians and fashion fans spoke openly about becoming a mother for the first time.
In the interview, Kaling, who already plays a mom on TV, says she’s “really excited” about her pregnancy. And when asked what kind of mother she wants to be, she gave a truly touching response. “My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us. She just loved us and wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,” she said of her own late mother. “My career choice was not something that she was familiar with, and she was just so supportive of that, and if I can give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I would be so happy.”
The actress and The Mindy Project creator already sounds like a great role model to us. Scroll down to watch the clip, and catch the full Today interview on September 10.
