Mindy Kaling broke her silence on expecting her first child on a preview of her Sunday TODAY interview with Willie Geist. Which will air on September 10th.
The 38 year old star of The Mindy Project and The Office, spoke about her feelings on becoming a mother.
“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.”
When asked what kind of parent she will be she responded saying “it’s so easy criticizing parenting until your a parent, so one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child”.
Kaling is deciding to keep the identity of the Father a secret but shared her mother Swati Roysircars parenting. “My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did. My career choice was not something she 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”.
