Mindy Kaling just shared an adorable mommy and me photo with her daughter, Katherine “Kit” Kaling.
The Office alum, who welcomed her first child in Dec. 2017, rarely shares pictures with her baby girl, but it seems this sweet snap was too cute to not post! In the photo, Mindy and Kit can be seen wearing matching glitter sandals.
“Got these little pons sandals for me and Kit,” Mindy captioned the social media snap, which purposely does not show her daughter’s face. “Glitter is our aesthetic.”
In response to the photo, Mindy’s A Wrinkle in Time co-star Reese Witherspoon commented, “Glitter is your signature color.”
When asked if there was a “right time” for her to have a child, the 40-year-old actress, writer and producer replied, “No, there wasn’t.”
“I always knew I wanted to be a mom, but I would have put it off and put it off. I’m happy that it happened when it did,” Mindy shared. “I would have put it off indefinitely. I’ve seen firsthand the heartbreak of women who have waited to get pregnant [and then it doesn’t happen]. For me, my relationship with my mother was such an integral part of my life. Thinking back on our relationship is still such a huge source of my happiness day to day, so I’m so grateful for having Katherine.”
And when it comes to posting photos of her daughter, Mindy told the outlet, “I’m on social media and like sharing with people what my interests are and how my day’s going and all of that, but I do feel entitled to have privacy about my daughter and my relationships. It’s really essential to my life that there be something not everybody knows about. That’s a boundary, but it’s a very small boundary. Everything else I really don’t have any issue sharing.”
