Kaling hasn't confirmed her daughter's birth yet, but People reports that the baby, Katherine Swati Kaling, was born at on Dec. 15 at 10:50 a.m. in Los Angeles. Her middle name is a touching nod to the actress's mother, who died in 2012 after battling pancreatic cancer. Kaling previously told Willie Geist of "Sunday Today" that she wanted to model herself after her mom and hoped to pass on values she learned from her.
Those hoping to see photos of Kaling's baby will have to be patient. Although the actress has been promoting her upcoming heist film on social media over the last few days, she hasn't shared any photos of her new bundle of joy yet. Don't be surprised if she opts for privacy, as Kaling hasn't even named the baby's father and it was not her but Oprah Winfrey who initially announced her pregnancy.
We hope mom and baby are doing well.
