Thanks everyone for your kind words about the new addition to my family. Being pregnant during the pandemic was a little scary, but it made me appreciate all the doctors, nurses and medical professionals who continue to work tirelessly giving treatment to those who need it, putting their own lives at risk. Spencer is happy and healthy and his sister is obsessed with him (well, his toys). It’s been so fun having him in the house, I almost forget I’m outnumbered now. Love and grateful hugs. Xoxo MK
Thus far, it’s not really clear who the father is, but she had previously touched on the idea of growing her family in the book she recently released, Nothing Like I Imagined. While she loves her family and loves talking about them, Kaling said she won’t talk to her kids about their father until they’re old enough.
She hasn’t told her daughter about it, Kaling explained, so she won’t be telling the public about it either. Kaling says her kids are her priority, and she intends on keeping it quiet in the public sphere at least until her kids know.
Kaling says people are often surprised when she doesn’t talk much about her personal life, particularly related to her children, considering she is so open and honest on her social media accounts.
