In an interview with Willie Geist for "Sunday Today," the writer/actress spoke out about her pregnancy for the first time.
"It's so unknown to me," she said. "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."
The "Mindy Project" and "A Wrinkle in Time" star still hasn't revealed the paternity of her baby, but she did open up about wanting to model herself after her mother, who died in 2012 of pancreatic cancer.
"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," she noted. "My career choice was not something that 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."
