Telling show host Willie Geist that she was “really excited,” the A Wrinkle in Time star added she was ready for a new adventure.
I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling.
In October, the Massachusetts-born confirmed the sex of her baby as she appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
I wanted to know way early. I’m having a girl. I’m excited about it.
Just weeks before the birth of Katherine, the actress who also gave her voice in Inside Out posted the first image of her growing baby bump on Instagram. Check it out.
Mindy’s pregnancy might not come as a surprise to all, since she talked about her desire to have kids in an interview with Yahool! Style back in September 2015.
