Mindy Kaling Is ‘Ecstatic’ About Being a New Mom, Adam Pally Says

Mindy Lahiri and Peter Prentice are still BFF goals. Adam Pally, who costarred with Mindy Kaling in her comedy The Mindy Project, opened up about her new role as mom on Tuesday, January 30.

“I think she’s ecstatic,” the 35-year-old exclusively told Us Weekly at the opening night of the off-Broadway play Cardinal in NYC. “She’s doing good! She’s happy and working, she has a show [Champions] coming out, which looks really funny.”

Kaling, 38, was pregnant during the final season of The Mindy Project, which aired its last episode in November 2017. One month later, the Office alum welcomed a daughter named Katherine.

“I think she can handle anything,” Pally added of Kaling’s hectic schedule, noting that they “speak all the time.”

Despite being so close, the Happy Endings alum has no clue what baby gift he gave her.

“You know my wife [Daniella Liben] handles all this. I’m so cliche so I don’t know,” he added to Us, laughing. “I’m assuming we did because my wife is so on it. I don’t know what it is. I’m sure it’s very cute and very expensive!”
