After some time of speculation, it seems the rumours are true – Mindy Kaling is indeed pregnant with her first child. In a sneak peek from a new sit-down interview with Sunday TODAY, The Mindy Project star opened up about her excitement of being a first-time 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," Mindy said of the good news.

On being a good mum, Mindy hopes to exemplify her own late mother's parenting style. "My mum 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 that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that," she said. "If I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I'd be so happy."

The actress has not publicly revealed who the father is but whatever it is, we're so excited for you, Mindy – congratulations!
