Nothing quite forces a person’s hand like Oprah spilling the beans on your pregnancy, which we assume is why, at long last, Mindy Kaling is confirming what the Internet has known since July.
In a clip from an upcoming Sunday TODAY show interview, the 38 year old says she’s “really excited” about motherhood.
“It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling,” she says in the interview, which airs September 10.
“My career choice was not something that [my Mom] was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy.”
Not in the clip? The father of her baby, which like, honestly, is her business anyway.
