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.”
