  • ♪ >> Stephen: HEY, EVERYBODY,

  • WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW."

  • MY FIRST GUEST TONIGHT IS THE WONDERFUL ACTOR, WRITER, AND

  • PRODUCER BEHIND SHOWS LIKE "NEVER HAVE I EVER," "THE MINDY

  • PROJECT," AND "THE OFFICE."

  • PLEASE WELCOME BACK TO "A LATE SHOW," MINDY KALING!

  • MINDY, SO LOVELY TO SEE YOU!

  • >> THANK YOU, IT'S GREAT TO SEE YOU VIRTUALLY.

  • >> Stephen: YEAH, I'LL TAKE IT ANY WAY I CAN.

  • I SEE MOST PEOPLE VIRTUALLY THESE DAYS, OTHER THAN MY

  • FAMILY.

  • THAT'S ABOUT IT.

  • HOW IS YOUR BUBBLE GOING?

  • >> IS IT UNSYMPATHETIC TO SAY I HAVE BEEN HAVING A GREAT BUBBLE?

  • >> Stephen: NO, NO.

  • THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE A BUBBLE IS ALL YOU NEED TO SAY.

  • EVERYTHING WITHIN THE BUBBLE IS PERFECTLY FINE FOR THAT TO BE

  • GOOD, AS LONG AS YOU ARE KEEPING A BUBBLE.

  • >> MY HERMETICALLY SEALED BUBBLE HAS BEEN NICE, I HAVE TO ADMIT.

  • >> Stephen: AND I UNDERSTAND THAT IT'S ACTUALLY GROWING

  • BECAUSE I GOT SOMETHING I RARELY GET THESE DAYS WHICH IS SOME

  • GOOD NEWS, WHICH, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND SHARING WITH YOUR

  • AUDIENCE, I THINK THEY WOULD BE THRILLED TO FIND OUT SOMETHING

  • EXTRAORDINARY THAT NOBODY KNOWS UP UNTIL THIS MOMENT.

  • >> YES, I'M -- IT'S -- I'M TELLING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME

  • NOW, I FEEL SO STRANGE, BUT I GAVE BIRTH TO A BABY BOY ON

  • SEPTEMBER 3rd.

  • >> Stephen: NO ONE EVEN KNEW YOU WERE PREGNANT!

  • >> I KNOW!

  • I KNOW!

  • THIS IS NEWS TO A LOT OF PEOPLE.

  • IT'S TRUE.

  • >> Stephen: WELL, CONGRATULATIONS.

  • THAT'S WONDERFUL.

  • >> THANK YOU.

  • THANKS.

  • >> Stephen: SO YOU SAID BABY BOY?

  • DID YOU SAY BABY BOY?

  • >> BABY BOY.

  • >> Stephen: DO WE HAVE A NAME YET?

  • >> YES, HIS NAME IS SPENCER.

  • I FORGOT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF IT.

  • >> Stephen: SPENCER KALING, LOVELY.

  • HOW OLD IS YOUR DAUGHTER AT THIS POINT?

  • >> SHE'S ALMOST THREE.

  • >> Stephen: AND HOW IS SHE RECEIVING?

  • BECAUSE MY DAUGHTER WAS TWO AND A HALF WHEN HER LITTLE BROTHER

  • WAS BORN, AND AT A CERTAIN POINT, SHE SAID SEND HIM BACK.

  • >> YES.

  • >> Stephen: HOW IS SHE RECEIVING SPENCER?

  • >> SHE WAS WERER AMBIVALENT AT FIRST, I WOULD SAY, TO BE

  • GENEROUS.

  • SHE WAS REALLY WORRIED ABOUT HER TOYS GETTING TAKEN.

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S A REASONABLE FEAR.

  • >> YEAH.

  • AND, SO, IT HAPPENED AND I THINK, IN HER MIND, BECAUSE

  • SHE'S ALMOST TWO AND A HALF, ALMOST THREE, SHE THOUGHT IT

  • WOULD BE ANOTHER CHILD THAT WAS HER SAME SIZE.

  • BUT THEN SHE -- YOU KNOW, SHE WAS DELIGHTED WHEN HE ARRIVED

  • HOME WITH ME AT THE HOSPITAL AND HE WAS KIND OF A BLOB THAT

  • COULDN'T TAKE HER TOYS.

  • SO SHE'S A HUGE FAN NOW THAT SHE'S MET HIM.

  • >> Stephen: HOW TID YOU KEEP THIS SECRET?

  • PEOPLE CARE AND FOLLOW WHAT'S GOING ON IN MINDY KALING'S LIFE.

  • HOW DID NO ONE KNOW THIS WAS COMING?

  • >> WELL, NO ONE SAW ME.

  • IT FELT WEIRD TO BE -- YOU KNOW, THERE WAS SO MUCH GOING ON AND

  • SO MUCH HEARTBREAK IN THE WORLD THAT IT FELT STRANGE TO GO OUT

  • OF MY WAY TO, YOU KNOW, SHINE A LIGHT ON SOME GIANT HEALTH

  • INFORMATION, YOU KNOW.

  • NO ONE REALLY SAW ME, EXCEPT ONE TIME I DID GO TO BUY MY DAUGHTER

  • AND I GOT CAUGHT BI BY -- POPARA CAUGHT ME.

  • AND I THOUGHT, THEY WILL KNOW BECAUSE I WAS EIGHT MONTHS

  • PREGNANT.

  • >> Stephen: IS THIS FROM "THE DAILY MAIL"?

  • >> YES, SO THEY RAN THIS PHOTO OF ME AND I LOOK VERY PREGNANT,

  • I WOULD SAY.

  • >> Stephen: YEAH, THAT'S A PREGNANT PERSON.

  • >> I THINK THIS IS WHAT'S FUNNY, THEY WERE TOO NERVOUS TO CLAIM

  • THAT I WAS PREGNANT THAT IT WAS ALMOST MORE INSULTING.

  • THEY WERE, LIKE, MINDY KALING JUST LOOKS LIKE THIS.

  • >> Stephen: WHAT DID THEY SAY?

  • DID THEY SAY, LIKE, MINDY KALING OUT ON THE TOWN?

  • >> YEAH, THEY WERE, LIKE, OUT ON THE TOWN AT A KIDS' TOY STORE.

  • I THINK THEY SAID I WAS BUYING TOYS FOR MY OLDER KID.

  • BUT I WAS SO INSULTED.

  • LIKE, IF YOU'RE NOT PREGNANT, YOU NEED TO GO TO THE DOCTOR IF

  • YOU LOOK LIKE THAT.

  • RIGHT?

  • >> Stephen: I'M NOT GOING TO JUMP ON THAT TRAIN.

  • THANK YOU FOR INVITE MEG ON IT, THOUGH.

  • I THINK YOU'RE FANTASTIC.

  • YOU LOOK FANTASTIC.

  • >> I'M VERY DIPLOMATIC HERE.

  • >> Stephen: DOES IT FEEL DIFFERENT TO HAVE A SON?

  • OBVIOUSLY, HAVING A BABY WHEN YOU HAVEN'THEAD A BABY JUST

  • CHANGES EVERYTHING, LIKE YOUR VIEW OF THE WORLD.

  • BUT NOW, A, HAVING A SECOND CHILD AND HAVING A SON INSTEAD

  • OF A DAUGHTER, IS THAT A DIFFERENT VIBE FOR YOU?

  • >> WELL, I DON'T KNOW, STEPHEN.

  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU AND YOUR WIFE IF YOU FEEL THIS WAY

  • BECAUSE YOU HAVE BOTH, BUT I THINK THAT SAYING MY SON FEELS

  • VERY FORMAL.

  • IT'S, LIKE, I DON'T KNOW WHETHER I'VE SEEN SO MANY WAR MOVIES AND

  • DOCUMENTARIES, BUT, I DON'T KNOW, SAYING, LIKE, MY DAUGHTER

  • FEELS CONTEMPORARY AND OF THE MOMENT.

  • BUT SAYING A SON FEELS SO OLD TIMEY.

  • I FEEL LIKE IF MY DAUGHTER WERE TO COME HOME FROM SPRING BREAK,

  • I WOULD BE, LIKE, MY DAUGHTER JUST CAME HOME FROM CANCUN.

  • BUT I WOULD BE, LIKE, MY SON RETURNED FROM OVERSEAS...

  • ( LAUGHTER ) I DON'T KNOW, IT FEELS MORE

  • NORMAL.

  • >> Stephen: BEING A SON IT SEEMS PER FECKLY NATURAL TO ME,

  • TO HEAR THE WORD SON.

  • THIS IS ONE PLUS, IS THAT, WHEN THEY'RE A LITTLE BIT OLDER AND

  • YOU TALK TO THEM,ETH WEIRD TO SAY, NOW, DAUGHTER -- THAT'S

  • WEIRD.

  • BUT TO GO, LISTEN, SON -- THAT, THAT HAS GOT A REAL STAB TO IT.

  • LISTEN, SON!

  • IT'S GOT PUNCH.

  • >> THAT'S GOOD.

  • I LIKE THAT.

  • >> Stephen: YOU'VE GOT AN ESSAY COLLECTION OUT NOW.

  • WHAT'S THE NAME OF THIS ESSAY COLLECTION?

  • >> "NOTHING LIKE I IMAGINED, EXCEPT FOR SOMETIMES."

  • >> Stephen: EXCEPT FOR SOMETIMES.

  • IN IT YOU WRITE THAT RAISING YOUR DAUGHTER MADE YOU MORE

  • CONNECTED TO YOUR HINDU FAITH.

  • WERE YOU RAISED WITH, YOU KNOW, SORT OF THE CEREMONIES OF THE

  • HINDU CALENDAR?

  • >> NOT AT ALL, REALLY.

  • I WAS BORN HERE AND I'M INDIAN AMERICAN AND MY PARENTS MET IN

  • AFRICA, SO, LIKE, WE WEREN'T RAISED WITH -- AND THEY'RE FROM

  • COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PARTS OF INDIA, SPEAK DIFFERENT

  • LANGUAGES, AND, SO, WE WEREN'T REALLY RAISED WITH A LOT OF

  • RELIGION.

  • BUT WHAT I WRITE ABOUT IN MY BOOK IS I TALK ABOUT MY FAITH

  • AND HOW MY MOTHER PASSED AWAY AND THAT ACTUALLY TRIGGERED ME

  • THINKING ABOUT MY FAITH IN A NEW WAY, AND WHEN I HAD MY DAUGHTER,

  • WE WENT THROUGH A HINDU CEREMONY WHEN YOU SHAVE YOUR CHILD'S HAIR

  • WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF THEIR LIFE.

  • >> Stephen: AND WHY DO YOU DO THAT?

  • >> YOU DO THAT BECAUSE, FOR HINDUS, THE HAIR THAT YOU ARE

  • BORN WITH BELONGS TO YOUR PAST LIFE.

  • MY DAUGHTER HAD A LOT OF HAIR SO SHE HAD A LOT OF HER PAST LIFE

  • WITH HER.

  • THIS IS TRICKY.

  • YOU HAVE TO DO IT IN HER FIRST YEAR OR WAIT TILL HER THIRD

  • YEAR.

  • SO I THOUGHT IF SHE'S THREE, IT WOULD BE MORE TRAUMATIZING FOR

  • HER TO BE BALD.

  • I DECIDED TO DO IT WHEN SHE WAS TEN MONTHS OLD.

  • THE WAY SHE REACTED TO IT WAS LIKE IT WAS TEN TIMES WORSE THAN

  • A CIRCUMCISION.

  • >> Stephen: OH, MY GOSH.

  • SO SHE DID NOT WANT TO LET GO TO HAVE THE PAST LIFE.

  • >> SHE TID NOT WANT TO LET GO OF HER PAST LIFE.

  • >> Stephen: SHE MUST HAVE HAD A REALLY GOOD RIDE LAST TIME

  • AROUND.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: YOU HAD THIS CEREMONY, RIGHT?

  • >> I HAD THE CEREMONY MYSELF.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) WAIT --

  • >> Stephen: THAT'S A GOOD LOOK.

  • THAT'S A GOOD LOOK.

  • >> I THINK IT'S A BAD SIGN WHEN THE HOST LAUGHS AT A GUEST

  • ESHOWING A PHOTO.

  • >> Stephen: IT'S ADORABLE.

  • THANK YOU FOR BEING ADORABLE.

  • >> I DON'T KNOW IF YOU FEEL THIS WAY WHEN YOU GO THROUGH DOING

  • CEREMONIES IN YOUR FAITH, BUT IT MADE ME FEEL ABOUT MY MOTHER

  • BECAUSE SHE HAD DONE THAT TO ME.

  • SO RAISING KIDS, I WAS TRIGGERED CONSTANTLY BY MEMORIES OF MY

  • CHILDHOOD AND THAT MADE ME FEEL CONNECTED TO HER BECAUSE SHE

  • FELT I SHOULD GET MY HAIRCUT AS A BABY.

  • >> Stephen: I PERCEIVED MY OWN CHILDHOOD CEREMONIES WHEN MY

  • CHILDREN WENT THROUGH THEM AND SAW THEM AS CULTURAL GIFTS,

  • ALMOST LIKE LITTLE LOVE POEMS OF HOW LIFE CAN BE LIVED OR HOW WE

  • CAN CONNECT TO OUR COMMUNITY.

  • THEY ALL BECAME VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.

  • AND LET'S JUST SIT IN SILENCE HERE FOR A MOMENT AND JUST ENJOY

  • THAT MOMENT OF CONNECTION THAT YOU AND I JUST HAD.

  • DON'T RUIN IT.

  • DON'T RUIN IT BY TALKING.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) B.J. NOVAK IS -- WE'RE BACK WITH

  • OUR CONTINUING COVERAGE OF MINDY KALING.

  • I WANT TO WARN OUR AFFILIATES.

  • B.J. NOVAK IS GOD FATHER TO BOTH OF YOUR KIDS.

  • TRADITIONALLY THE GODFATHER PLAYS A ROLE IN SPIRITUAL

  • DEVELOPMENT AND EDUCATION OF THE CHILD.

  • IS HE PITCHING IN FOR -- YOU KNOW, WAS HE AT THE MUNDIN?

  • >> HE WAS AT THE MUNDIN BUT NOTHING MORE THAN THAT.

  • IT WAS HARD BECAUSE THE CONCEPT OF A GOD FATHER IS A CHRISTIAN

  • THING.

  • >> Stephen: OH, YEAH.

  • O HE'S JEWISH, MY KIDS ARE HINDU, AND, SO, MAYBE HE WAS NOT

  • THE RIGHT PERSON TO PICK, ACTUALLY.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: MINDY, LOVELY TO

  • SEE YOU AGAIN.

  • >> NICE TO SEE YOU, THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

  • THANKS FOR SHARING MY NEWS.

  • >> Stephen: THANK YOU FOR SHARING THE NEWS.

  • WE'RE HONORED TO INFORM THE WORLD HERE ON "THE LATE SHOW."

  • HER ESSAY "NOTHING LIKE I IMAGINED, EXCEPT FOR SOMETIMES"

  • IS AVAILABLE NOW ON AMAZON.

  • MINDY KALING, EVERYBODY.

  • WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH FORMER C.I.A. DIRECTOR JOHN BRENNAN.

  • IT'S A NATURAL MATCH, YOU, JOHN BRENNAN, PERFECT!
