We鈥檝e been on bump watch since last week, when Mindy Kaling was revealed to be expecting her first child. Our patience has finally paid off, as The Mindy Kaling Project star, who is five months along as she confirmed to Oprah, just made her post-pregnancy announcement debut on the red carpet at the Television Critics Association conference in Beverly Hills.

Kaling went the non-maternity route in a navy La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni Galena Dress ($750) with grommet accents that had all the hallmarks of her signature look: fitted, stylish, and full of fun details. The A Wrinkle in Time actress paired her ensemble with black Jimmy Choo sandals with embellished straps.

The 38-year-old also revealed that this season of her show will cover a hot button issue that two out of three mothers experience. 鈥淭he episode is a little bit about mom-shaming, and that鈥檚 cool,鈥 the mom-to-be quipped. 鈥淚t was really fun, and hit a lot of those juicy-ripped-from-the-blogger-headline stories.鈥
