"It was a real gift to be pregnant during the pandemic. I felt really scrutinized during my first pregnancy and I think that it was such a joy to spend the last seven months of my pregnancy under the cover of just nobody was out, nobody was taking photos," Kaling was quoted as saying.


Kaling also talked about her daughter taking on the role of being a big sister. 


"I think the sharing of the resources and the toys is a little bit hard for her, as it would be for anybody, but she's definitely coming around. I think it probably helps that her little brother just like adores her. All he wants to do is crawl up under her and be close to her," Kaling reportedly shared.
