Mindy Kaling Welcomes Baby No. 2
Is it time for Reese Witherspoon to start a list of her own favorite things?
Mindy Kaling told PopSugar on Wednesday, Nov. 18 that it’s tough for her to choose the best baby gift she’s ever received. Indeed, the mother of two holds a special place in her heart for Oprah Winfrey‘s incredible gesture after daughter Katherine arrived in 2017. But Witherspoon’s surprise for Kaling’s son, Spencer, whom she secretly welcomed in September, takes the cake.
“Listen, that gift from Oprah was pretty hard to top,” said Kaling. “I will say that, and this is maybe unsurprising … Reese.”
Clearly, Witherspoon’s gift would have to be pretty sensational to top Winfrey’s, and sure enough, it was. Plus, Spencer wasn’t the only beneficiary.
“I felt like the minute I got back from the hospital, there was a gorgeous gift for Spencer, with beautiful clothes and toys,” Kaling said. “And this is why you know a gift is from Reese Witherspoon—she also got my older kid something. My daughter, who didn’t do anything, got all these beautiful clothes and toys, too. And she sent us food, so we didn’t have to cook for four days. So, that’s to me just a very Reese Witherspoon-type present where it’s thoughtful but in a very macro way. Like, she really knows what’s going on in your life. That was impressive to me.”
