PureWow recently sat down to chat with the Mindy Project actress about her latest partnership with T.J.Maxx and the launch of "The Change Exchange" Pen Pal Program. The empowering letter-writing program is designed to help women connect with each other and feel supported as they navigate moments of change (sign up here).
During the interview, we asked the Office star how she plans on celebrating her youngest’s first birthday. According to Kaling, she’ll likely keep the festivities small (and musical) due to the pandemic.
“Oh my gosh, the pressure is on,” she told us. “I think the one-year birthday is tough if I may say because he won't have a huge memory of it. By the way, also with the Delta variant, it feels a little irresponsible to be having a big bash for his birthday. He’s really musical so I think I might do a cake in the shape of a xylophone or something like that. And just do something really small with just my immediate family.”
