Yep, total badass.

As for baby Katherine’s father, people have a OTP in mind, and they will not let it go.

Not to be dramatic but if BJ Novak isn’t the father of Mindy Kaling’s baby I will shatter a window.

– the audio of solange in the elevator
– full pilot of greta gerwig’s ‘how i met your father’ spin off

We know Mindy’s busy and all, but this would be a true gift:

Same, tbh.

I’m already jealous of Mindy Kaling’s daughter.

I mean, who wouldn’t be? Just look at her closet:

And here’s a lesson for all of you who aren’t appropriately excited.

Mindy Kaling gave birth and it didn’t break my twitter timeline so if I unfollow you tomorrow it’s not personal, you just don’t tweet about Mindy Kaling enough and I hope you learn a lesson from all this.
