Mindy Kaling has confirmed pregnancy rumors and says she's excited to be a mom, the AP reports. The 38-year-old actress opened up about her pregnancy in an interview to be broadcast next month on the Sunday edition of NBC's Today show. In a preview released Tuesday , she joked with Willie Geist that she's excited to have a child so she'll be able to "openly criticize other parenting." Turning serious, Kaling said she hopes to use her late mother as an example of how to be a good mom. She says her mother was open-minded and always supportive of her career choice. Kaling didn't say in the clip who the baby's father is. Kaling is to star in the final season of her Hulu series The Mindy Project next month. (More Mindy Kaling stories.)
