Actress and Cambridge native Mindy Kaling has given birth to a baby girl, according to E! News. Katherine Kaling was born on Dec. 15.

Kaling, 38, revealed she was having a girl on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October. She publicly confirmed her pregnancy earlier this year on NBC’s Sunday Today.

“It’s so unknown to me,” Kaling told host Willie Geist, in regards to motherhood. “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.”


Although Kaling’s The Mindy Project released its final season this year, the actress will be busy in 2018. She will appear in A Wrinkle in Time and Ocean’s 8, slated to premiere in March and June, respectively. She will also write, produce, and appear in NBC’s upcoming show Champions.

Kaling has not revealed the identity of her daughter’s father.
