Mindy Kaling is now a mother. The 38-year-old creator and star of The Mindy Project gave birth to her first child last week, a girl she named Katherine Kaling, reports E! Online. The website notes that Kaling guards her privacy, and she has yet to reveal the name of the father. Nor is she known to be in a current relationship. Kaling had spoken of her pregnancy as an "unexpected surprise," and People notes that it was none other than Oprah Winfrey who actually confirmed the news publicly about her friend over the summer.
