Mindy Kaling Grace The Cover Of Glamour Magazine
Opening up in a new feature for Glamour the Massachusetts born beauty says: 'People may be surprised to hear this, but I think I do have a little social anxiety,
'Luckily Anna Wintour made it so that you're going to a literal museum, where there's so much to take in. If we weren't going to a museum and just to an event space, I would need to take a Valium or something before I go because it's so stressful to me.
'That's not really something people know about me, because I am so open to one-on-one conversations like this one.'
The Mindy Project creator became a mom in December 2017, welcoming daughter Katherine and has been careful to keep the identity of the father a secret as well as avoiding sharing snaps of her little girl's face online.
'It's really essential to my life that there be something not everybody knows about,' she says. 'That's a boundary, but it's a very small boundary. Everything else I really don't have any issue sharing.'
Becoming a mom was important to Mindy but she admits she kept putting it off for too long.
'I'm happy that it happened when it did,' she tells Glamour. '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.'
Mindy says she would love it if Katherine inherited her sense of drive and ambition but wouldn't encourage her to go into the entertainment industry.
