It's a girl for Mindy Kaling!

Washington D.C. [USA], Dec 21: Mindy Kaling, who welcomed a daughter named Katherine Swati Kaling on December 15, has paid tribute to her late mother by naming her first child after her.

Cambridge native and creator/star of "The Mindy Project", Mindy Kaling, has given birth to a baby girl, People has reported.

Mindy refused to comment on the identity of her baby's father throughout her pregnancy, and has continued to remain tight-lipped on the matter.

She was extremely private about her pregnancy, confirming the good news in August after a number of leaks from friends and co-stars. "I just think that she's up to it", Beth Gant, who plays Beverly Janoszewski on the series, said during the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview.
