“That’s when she told me. My mouth dropped,” Winfrey said while talking to PEOPLE magazine. ” ‘What did you just say?’ she said, ‘Oh, Oprah, I don’t think you know. I’m 5 months pregnant.’ And I said, ‘WHAAAAT?!’ ”
“That was it, and we just kept smiling. And then I said to [Reese Witherspoon], ‘Did you know?’ and she said, ‘I just found out, too.’ And then I said to [Wrinkle director Ava DuVernay], ‘Did you know?’ And she said, ‘I just found out,’ ” the talk show host continued.
An insider close to Kaling explained that the pregnancy was “an unexpected surprise” for the 38-year-old actress. In the past, she has been open about wanting to have children.
"I think I've decided that unlike everything else in my life, I'm going to be fast and loose about kids," she said while talking with Yahoo! Style. "I'm going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen."
"I'm not cavalier about who I would have a kid with. But the thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier," The Office alum continued.
Winfrey and Kaling's upcoming film, A Wrinkle In Time, is expected to hit theaters in March of 2018.
