I’m excited for her: Oprah Winfrey on co-star Mindy Kaling’s pregnancy
Celebrity TV host-actor Oprah Winfrey (far right) has confirmed that her friend, sitcom star Mindy Kaling (right), is five months pregnant.
The 63-year-old media mogul, who co-stars with Kaling in the upcoming movie A Wrinkle In Time, said that she found out Kaling was pregnant during the film’s press line at Disney’s D23 expo, reported People magazine.
“That’s when she told me. My mouth dropped,” explained Winfrey. “’What did you just say?’ she said, ‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m five months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘WHAAAAT?!’”
Winfrey added, “That was it, and we just kept smiling. And then I said to (actor) Reese Witherspoon, ‘Did you know?’ and she said, ‘I just found out, too.’ And then I said to [director Ava DuVernay), ‘Did you know?’ And she said, ‘I just found out.’” Winfrey said that the entire team of A Wrinkle In Time had no idea that Kaling was expecting. “I’m excited for her,” she added.
