It was first reported in July that the 38-year-old star was expecting her first child. The source who revealed the news called the announcement an “unexpected surprise.” Kaling, who’s known to be private about her personal life, has not publicly revealed the identity of the baby girl’s father.

Shortly after the news of her pregnancy broke, Oprah Winfrey, Kaling’s A Wrinkle in Time costar, confirmed that the actress 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,” Kaling responded months later on The Ellen Show.” You also can’t be like, ‘Hey Oprah, zip it!’ because she’s almost like a religious figure.”
