Mindy Kaling confirms rumored pregnancy, plus other celeb baby news

Baby news: Mindy Kaling is going to be a mom! The Mindy Project star confirmed her long rumored pregnancy during an interview on NBC's Today show. "I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life and this is one where I'm like, 'Okay, it's out of my hands,' which is kind of a fun feeling," she said. Kaling also talked about her late mother, who Kaling said was "incredibly fierce and so devoted," adding that she hoped she could giver her child the same support her mother gave her. This will be Kaling's first child. Kaling, 38, has not revealed the identity of the father. The full Today interview airs Sept. 10.

"Our baby girl is here sweet Ada James Akins came into the world at 10:28 last night after almost 36 hours of labor (only Jesus got me through that-& she is sooo worth it)," Akins wrote on Instagram. The couple became pregnant while in the process of adopting their daughter, Willa Gray, from Africa. "It's funny to me how we tried so hard and then we didn't try at all and it happened," she told People.
