Kaling May Not Recommend A Secret Pregnancy But It Has CertainlyBbeen An Enriching Experience For Her
In a recent interview, the actress who kept her pregnancy under wraps said that while she doesn’t recommend having a “secret pregnancy” during a pandemic, she is enjoying being a mom of two.
Speaking to Dr. Robin Berman during the #WOW21 event, Kaling who is also mother to 3-year-old daughter Katherine said, “It has been wonderful. I don’t know if I recommend everyone having a secret pregnancy during a worldwide pandemic, but I will say I learned a lot from it. Definitely like a once-in-a-lifetime type of thing.”
The Actress Had Not Intended To Keep The Pregnancy As Private As it Ended Up Being, According To Sources
Back in October, a source revealed that staying at home helped Kaling keep the pregnancy out of the spotlight. They said, “Keeping it private was easier this time because of quarantine. All of her work was done through Zoom.”
The insider also added that the Office alum who had been in the early stages of pregnancy at last year’s Oscars had planned to reveal the pregnancy at the Met Gala.
