Mindy Kaling has always tried to keep her personal life out of the public eye, focusing her fame on her acting and writing. But the 38-year-old The Mindy Project writer and star has found herself at the center of attention in the past few months after word of her first pregnancy spread.
Kaling recently opened up about her romantic life, saying that she believes she has more control over her professional life than she does her personal life in certain aspects.
“My professional life is the only thing that I feel I have a lot of control over—romantic stuff is a little bit more mysterious,” the actress-writer tells the September edition of American Way for American Airlines (Michael Scott's favorite magazine). “I think a lot of women respond to that.”
The Office actress and writer has yet to reveal the identity of her baby's father, but she revealed that she wanted to portray a working mother on The Mindy Project.
“On TV, we don’t see the discomfort that a lot of husbands feel when their wives have really demanding full-time jobs,” she said in the interview. “But in almost every one of my married friends’ relationships, this is the biggest single cause of stress.”
Kaling opened up about her pregnancy only last week after much anticipation from her fans. The actress spoke to Today's Willie Geist on the set of The Mindy Project about the upcoming chapter of motherhood in her life, saying, "[I'm] really excited! 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.”
As much as we are dying to know who the baby daddy is, we know one thing for sure: Mindy is going to make a great mama.
