AceShowbiz - The gender of Mindy Kaling's unborn baby has been unearthed. According to her co-star, "The Mindy Project" actress is pregnant with a baby girl. Beth Grant who plays Beverly Janoszewski on the show broke the news at PaleyFest Fall TV Preview even in Los Angeles.
"I'm just thrilled out of my mind! I cried like a baby and that it's a girl ... I just think that she's up to it," so Grant revealed to Us Weekly. "I just think that she's ready and I'm very happy for her because I have a daughter that's turning 25 and it's just the greatest thing in the world!"
He believed Kaling would be a great mother and explained why, "She does know my daughter and she's been very kind to her. In fact, when my daughter graduated Julliard, she took her to lunch and sent her flowers and gave her a gift and gave her a little costar role on the show this season."
"I think she's mentored a lot of young women and a lot of her former assistants are writing now. She's really good about giving young women opportunities and mentoring young women, so I think it's a natural thing for her to be a mom," he continued.
Ed Weeks, another castmate, was equally excited for the 38-year-old actress, "We were so thrilled for her... The show started as a tribute to her mother, who very sadly passed away just as the show is being picked up, and it ends with her having a daughter of her own."
The actor who plays Dr. Jeremy Reed on the show recalled the moment Kaling broke the news to her colleagues, "She kind of just took us aside on set, weirdly in the open office area where we film most of our scenes. She said, 'Guys, I just want you to know I'm pregnant. I haven't told anybody.' "
The baby will be Mindy Kaling's first child. She kept mum on the identity of her baby's father. "It's so unknown to me," she previously said of her impending motherhood. "I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where it's like, 'Okay!' It's out of my hands, which is kind of a fun feeling."
"As you know, it's so easy to criticize parenting until you're a parent. So one of the nice things about becoming a parent is I will be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child," she jokingly added.
