Comedian, writer and actress Mindy Kaling announced on Thursday that she's given birth to a baby boy, without anyone - outside her closest friends and family, we presume - knowing she was pregnant.
While fans were immediately curious about the baby's father, Kaling has not disclosed his identity.
The 41-year-old shared the news on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, much to the surprise of her fans.
"I'm telling it for the first time now, it feels so strange," she said. "But I gave birth to a baby boy on September 3."
"No one even knew you were pregnant!" Colbert said.
"I know! I know! This is news to a lot of people," Kaling said. "It's true."
The actress shared that her son's name is Spencer - a little brother to Kaling's two-year-old daughter Katherine.
The birth of Katherine in December 2017 was also kept out of the limelight. There were rumours of Kaling's pregnancy in July of that year, with a source telling E! the pregnancy was “an unexpected surprise”.
Kaling only publicly referenced the pregnancy once, in an interview with NBC’s Today show in August. At the time, she said she was “really excited” to become a mum.
“I’d like to be the fun mum, I know I’m gonna be the dorky mum,” she added. “So if I can be kind of fun too, I think that would be nice.”
