Mindy is five months along.
Details have been hard to come by where it concerns Mindy's surprise pregnancy, but Oprah Winfrey, who stars with "The Mindy Project" star in "A Wrinkle In Time," said she was told the news a few weeks ago on a press line.
"That's when she told me. My mouth dropped," Oprah said. "She said, 'Oh, Oprah, I don't think you know. I'm 5 months pregnant.' And I said, 'WHAAAAT?!'"
The TV host said, "That was it, and we just kept smiling. And then I said to [Reese Witherspoon], 'Did you know?' and she said, 'I just found out, too.' And then I said to [Wrinkle director Ava DuVernay], 'Did you know?' And she said, 'I just found out.'"
On July 27, Mindy sat on a panel as part of Hulu's 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour. She didn't address the pregnancy, but a slight bump could be seen.
"I'm excited for her," Oprah said.
It was reported on July 17 (around the same time she told Oprah) that Mindy was expecting.
A source told E! it was "an unexpected surprise." It's the first child for the actress. Little else was known at the time about the somewhat surprising pregnancy, including the identity of the baby's dad or how far along Mindy was.
In fact, on July 18, People magazine quoted a source who said, "She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is."
Another source close to the actress said there was no doubts about the kind of mom Mindy will be.
"Mindy is really motherly to the people she loves and cares about," the source said. "She takes care of them."
