People just can鈥檛 seem to keep any secrets when it comes to Mindy Kaling鈥檚 pregnancy. Oprah Winfrey confirmed the news before the mom-to-be could do so herself, and then Kaling鈥檚 costars spilled the beans聽about her baby鈥檚 sex. We were already excited about the possibility of a mini-Mindy, but we鈥檙e even more excited now that the actress herself has gone on the record about it.

Kaling opened up about her pregnancy during a chat on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week. Asked if she knew the sex of the baby, or if she wanted to wait to find out, the soon-to-be first-time mom replied, 鈥淚 am not waiting. I wanted to know WAY early. I鈥檓 having a girl. I鈥檓 so excited.鈥 (So are we! It *is* going to be a mini-Mindy!)

She also addressed the fact that Winfrey accidentally spoiled her big secret. 鈥淚 had told Oprah and Reese [Witherspoon] on a movie we鈥檙e working on, A Wrinkle in Time, and she announced it. She was very excited,鈥 Kaling explained. 鈥淎nd at first it was like, okay, if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person. You can鈥檛 complain that much about it. And you also can鈥檛 be like, 鈥楬ey, Oprah, zip it.鈥 Because she鈥檚 almost like a religious figure. So I actually thought, okay, if there鈥檚 one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah is pretty good.鈥

As far as the actual pregnancy, the Mindy Project star said that she鈥檚 had 鈥渁 pretty great time of it so far,鈥 but that she feels like she took a lot for granted during the first few months of her pregnancy. Now that she鈥檚 鈥渞eally pregnant,鈥 she鈥檚 all about sitting. 鈥淚鈥檓 obsessed with sitting. Like, even when I was standing back there, I was looking at this chair and I was like, 鈥楢w, can鈥檛 wait to sit in that chair. That beautiful, comfy chair.'鈥

She admitted, though, that while she loves a good sit, getting up can be challenging. 鈥淚鈥檓 counting on you to hoist me out of the chair,鈥 she joked.
