Mindy Kaling has given birth to a baby girl! The first time mom welcomed daughter, Katherine Kaling on December 15 E! News is reporting.

Kaling’s pregnancy was an “unexpected surprise” according to E! News, but the real surprise came when Oprah spilled the beans that The Mindy Project star was pregnant in July. The actress later revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that her baby was going to be a girl and told Ellen that she didn’t hold a grudge against her Wrinkle In Time co-star for breaking the news, “If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person. You can’t complain that much about it. And you also can’t be like, “Hey, Oprah, zip it’ — because she’s almost like a religious figure.”

The one thing that Kaling has managed to keep under wraps is the identity of the baby’s father. There is still no word on who he is, but in a recent interview with Willie Geist she shared that her plans for her own parenting style will be inspired by her mom, “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.”
