Congrats! Oprah confirms Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child

Earlier this month, rumours that Mindy Kaling was expecting her first child began to circulate, however this was never confirmed by the actress or her publicist.

But, it now seems that the former queen of day time television, Oprah Winfrey, has taken it upon herself to reveal the big news.

Oprah told People that she learned of Mindy's pregnancy during a press event at Disney's D23 expo this month.

“My mouth dropped. ‘What did you just say?’ she said, ‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m five months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘Whaaat?!’”

“That was it, and we just kept smiling,” she added.

The pair are set to star alongside each other in Ava DuVerny's upcoming film, A Wrinkle in Time, and it's been reported that The Mindy Project creator shared the news with the entire cast and crew.

Details of Mindy's current relationships status are unknown and it's thought the star plans to keep the identity of the father tightly under wraps.

The Mindy Project has been renewed for a sixth and final season and A Wrinkle in Time is set to premiere in March 2018.

Huge congratulations are in order!
