Mindy Kaling Welcomed Daughter Katherine Swati

Mindy Kaling welcomed her first child, a baby girl on December 15, 2017.  The Mindy Project star named the new arrival Katherine Swati Kaling at 10:50 AM on December 15, 2017. The baby’s middle name Swati is in honor of the actress’s mother who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2012.

According to reports, the father’s name and age were left blank on the newborns birth certificate adding fuel to the fire that she used an anonymous sperm donor.

According to E! News, the new came as “an unexpected surprise” but confirmed that Kaling is thrilled.

“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” she told Yahoo Style. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

Her timing couldn’t be better to have a baby.

Kaling is set to appear in the upcoming film, A Wrinkle In Time, and as the final season of The Mindy Project wraps

Congrats to the new mom!

Mindy Kaling Reveals on ‘Ellen’ That She’s Having a Baby Girl

Mindy Kaling, star of The Mindy Project, shared that she is expecting a baby girl during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday.

While chatting about her pregnancy, the first-time mom-to-be said : “I’m carrying a child! I’m very, very pregnant. I’ve had a pretty great time of it so far but I think I took a lot for granted before this now that I’m in my current situation. Like, now I’m obsessed with sitting.”

During another interview with William Geist on the Today show she opened up more about the the expectancy.

“I’m excited. Yeah it’s so unknown to me. I’m kind of, 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 fun,” she said.

Awesome. The actress-comediennea also joked that becoming a parent will open up her repertoire on things she can joke about

“It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent,” the number #3 Forbes highest paid female entertainer said. “So, one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child.”

But in the meantime, Kaling, who has Indian parentage and heritage credited her mom as an inspiration.

“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,” the actress has said. “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.”

Oprah Winfrey recently spilled the beans on how far along in pregnancy her  A Wrinkle In Time co-star Mindy Kaling is.

During a recent press tour to promote the project which also stars our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Reese Witherspoon, Winfrey shared with PEOPLE magazine that she learned of the baby news casually in the press line at Disney’s D23 expo last month.

“That’s when she told me. My mouth dropped,” the TV network owner and actress relayed to the mag. “What did you just say?’ she said, ‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m 5 months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘WHAAAAT?!’ ”

Winfrey then revealed that her co stars and the other members of the Wrinkle team learned of the news that moment too.

“That was it, and we just kept smiling. And then I said to [Reese Witherspoon], ‘Did you know?’ and she said, ‘I just found out, too.’ And then I said to [Wrinkle director Ava DuVernay], ‘Did you know?’ And she said, ‘I just found out.’ ”

Kaling has not shared with anyone, even her closest friends, who the dad is, multiple reports state.

She was seen for the first time since the news broke at the Television Critics Association panel for her show, The Mindy Project, at the Beverly Hilton last Thursday.

Thanks for the tea, O!

Report: Mindy Kaling Is Expecting Her First Child

img_8606

A Wrinkle In Time actress Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child, according to E! News sources.

The star of The Mindy Project was not planning to become pregnant, the insider told the entertainment news site. The baby is “an unexpected surprise” but the source said the pregnancy will not alter ongoing and already planned production schedules.

Her hit show that recently moved from FOX to the Hulu streaming channel and the FreeForm network  is entering its 8th and final season.

In interviews in the past, The Office alum had expressed interest in having children and convent over waiting until she is much older.

Per E!, she told Yahoo! style “I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” she told Yahoo! Style in a sit down interview.

“I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

She also admitted that she would love to have children, at the time, “maybe imminently.”

She also shared some insight into who she would want to welcome children into the world with, saying, “I’m not cavalier about who I would have a kid with. But the thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier.”

Kaling previously dated Benjamin Nugent from 2008-2012 and her Office co-star B.J. Novak from 2005-2007.

Though not personally confirmed, Congrats anyway!

Celeb Mamas Slayed 2019’s Met Gala Pink Carpet

This year’s annual gala to celebrate the opening of a new exhibit at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of the Arts, was more over the top than ever before.

Perhaps because the theme was “Camp”, maybe, celebrities brought extra extravagance and bold and gregarious fashion and antics.

The official theme of the Met’s 2019 was “Camp: Notes on Fashion” and celebrates the newest exhibit which is inspired by Susan Sontag‘s 1964 essay that defines camp as “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.”

I think Lady Gaga might have won with her theatrics that included he unraveling and revealing of not one but four looks by designer, with the assistance of a small army of flamboyant but meticulous handlers.

Cardi B’s presentation and actor Billy Porter’s were quite spectacular and so much so, I almost forgot previous mega head turners Rihanna, Beyoncé, Madonna and third-time mom-to-be Blake Lively were conspicuously missing.

My fave looks were by women who are not yet moms (per this is a celebrity pregnancy blog so they focus is on moms)

First was singer and Endgame actress Hailee Steinfield

My second fave was Lupita Nyong’o who is stunning!

And of course, we saw lots of the celebrity moms we have featured on Bellyitch who each brought their total A game to the party and did it up right!

I am proud of myself for having the institution memory to have been able to recognize all of these beautiful moms without reading the caption to see who they are. Woot.

NEW: Jay Z Drops Visually-Stimulating Celeb-Studded Futuristic Video for ‘Family Feud’ (PHOTOS and VIDEO)

If you follow this blog, you know I am a die-hard Beyonce, also a Jay and Bey fan and a fangirl of sci-fi and action movies so, I was quite geeked to immediately open up and peep the brand new video for Jay Z‘s song “Family Feud” off of his 444 album which melds all of my faves into one fantastical, visually-stimulating treat.

And I must say, the cinematography is on point….

All the Yeses to the Ava DuVernay-directed futuristic video which gives me “Black Panther” vibes, because it is set the year 2444 in a universe where Power‘s Omari Hardwick is the co-President of the Free World and is the direct descendant of the matriarch of a fantastical diverse group of women, dubbed the Fore-mothers, who re-configured the US Constitution in the year 2050 along with a pact called the “Confessional Papers”, per the prose in the video.

ETA: the director explained the video:

Westworld’s Irene Bedard plays a co-President

A Native American woman is the co-President played by Westworld’s Irene Bedard.

Yes to This is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson playing an adult Blue Ivy Carter who quotes her dad during that meeting saying “ Nobody wins when the family feuds,” a line from the song.

The Mindy Project’s Mindy Kaling heads the meeting

Yes to the union of leaders led by a character played  by a then-pregnant Mindy Kaling and featuring council members portrayed by ….

Claws‘ Neicy Nash, Angie Tribeca and Parks & Recreation‘s Rashida Jones, Room‘s Brie Larson, Marvel’s Luke Cage and The Defenders‘ star Rosario Dawson, trans advocate, journalist and and social commentator  Janet Mock, who are among the women who are tasked to lead the effort to set the world straight — as it should be because you know, given this “Me Too” era in the nation (and world), it really will take a small army of Women to do the job.

Fresh Off the Boat‘s Constance Wu

The Office’s Rashida Jones and Rosario Dawson, who stars in Marvel’s The Defenders, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage

Yes to the fictional president’s feuding for power family played by a Thandie Newton outfitted in a LeeLo from The Fifth Element-like bandage onesie  who fights with her brother played by Creed and Black Panther’s Michael B. Jordan .

Jessica Chastain cameos

David Oyelowo

Yes to the president’s ancestors saving the world from a time when “Make Us Great” meant make us fear one another!

America Ferrera is a warrior

Yes to Beyonce sitting on her throne on the other side of a Catholic confessional, metaphorically and literally, waiting to assign penance to Jay for reportedly cheating on her, as is referenced in the song.

Oh and yes to Blue making a cameo too!

From People:

All the celebrities who made cameos shared behind-the-scenes photos from filming once the video was released exclusively on Tidal.

This is far from JAY-Z’s first video featuring some Hollywood heavyweights.

He previously dropped the Friends-inspired clip for “Moonlight” with Tessa Thompson, Tiffany Haddish, Jerrod Carmichael and Issa Rae as well as the Lupita Nyong’o-starring “MaNyfaCedGod” and “Adnis” starring Mahershala Ali.

JAY-Z’s 18th studio album, 4:44, recently received eight Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Rap Album.

Celebrity Bump Watch: The Round Up This Week

We stalk track your fave expectant celebrity so you don’t have to, so here is a quick roundup of some of the pregnant stars and what they and their baby bumps are up to..,.

The Super Bowl 2015 Commercials moms loved most

Congrats to Tom Brady the husband of our two-time Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Gisele Bundchen  and his fellow players and team, the New England Patriots on their SuperBowl win. 
Since many of us who watched tonight’s game were just there for the commercials and not necessarily for the sport, here are the fave commercials the moms loved the most:
One of the winners of this year’s Doritos “crash the Superbowl” contest Scott Zabielski did a great job with his hilarious commercial that featured a baby! We love babies here!

Dodge‘s commercial with people 100 years and older providing age-old wisdom was great and inspirational!

Microsoft‘s commercial about a 6-year old Braylon O’Neill who was born without tibia and fibular bones in both his legs had us in tears and happy at the same time:

And we were in tears over the Toyota commercial “To Be Dad” saluting great fathers! Yes! just Yass!!

And Dove too kept us weeping with its #RealStrength Dove Men + Care dad tribute:

And as long as the waterworks are going, how about Proctor and Gamble‘s “Like A Girl” commercial? *sniff* If you didn’t see this campaign which launched about a year ago, you may have been upset about it at first until you realize it is an empowerment message! Good job!

T-Mobile hired our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Kim Kardashian to do a spoof of one of those cause commercials but this time about losing your unused data. Check it:



Mercedes-Benz’ classic take on The Tortoise and the Hare fable was cute and effective because everyone can relate to the Tortoise and root him on:



We love puppies too so, naturally, the Budweiser commercial featuring a man, his puppy and some horses was another fave:

What mom doesn’t like a campaign that will get their adult kids to call them or give them free hugs!

And you get a free meal to boot! Nice, McDonald’s:

Esurance scored big with a funny commercial about the importance of getting an insurance plan tailored to you and just you, not sort of you. Extra points for giving Lindsay Lohan a gig! She needs as many as she can get.





And the most unfortunate went to Nationwide who decided to draw on the heartstrings of every mom with the endearing sad story of a little boy declaring all the wonderful possibilities in life he wouldn’t get to experience…because he died! From falling out the window or drowning in a tub or drinking Drano! Wow!

But luckily, they did score big with their commercial before featuring comedienne Mindy Kaling!
