This just in: Oprah Winfrey dropped the biggest and best bomb of the year and confirmed her A Wrinkle in Time costar Mindy Kaling is five months pregnant! *Bursts into embarrassingly unflattering happy dance*
Oprah finally put our curiosity to rest and revealed The Mindy Project star spilled the happy news to her at Disney’s D23 Expo earlier this month. “That’s when she told me. My mouth dropped,” Oprah told People.
Like the rest of us, Oprah was thrilled for her costar and in utter disbelief. She went on to recall the conversation and Kaling's characteristic nonchalance, “‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m 5 months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘WHAAAAT?!’ That was it, and we just kept smiling.”
The media mogul also noted that none of the A Wrinkle in Time cast or crew—including Reese Witherspoon and Ava DuVernay—knew Kaling was expecting until she took advantage of the press tour’s group setting to inform everyone together of her exciting news.
If Kaling happened to be wondering if she'd ever find a more appropriate time or reason to request a special Kelly Kapoor-dedicated Oprah episode, we'd say this checks all the boxes of an epic couch jumping moment.
