Mindy Kaling had a surprise announcement for viewers of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Thursday night.
The actor revealed that she gave birth to her second child, Spencer, on Sept. 3 after successfully keeping her pregnancy a secret throughout the coronavirus pandemic ― despite at one point getting photographed by the paparazzi.
“I’m telling it for the first time now. It feels so strange,” Kaling told host Stephen Colbert. “This is news to a lot of people, it’s true.”
“There was so much going on and so much heartbreak in the world that it felt strange to go out of my way and shine a light on some giant health information,” Kaling said.
The “Late Night” star also shared how her eldest daughter, Katherine, who is almost 3 years old, has handled having a new sibling.

Kaling, who is publicly single, has not revealed the paternity of either child.
“My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter [about her father], I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,” she told The New York Times in 2019.
