Mindy Kaling says son Spencer makes ‘everything better’ as she celebrates his first birthday
Mindy Kaling says her son Spencer helped make ‘everything better’ during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Never Had I Ever creator, 42, wrote about how special her son is in an Instagram celebrating his first birthday.
A sweet shot of her little dude reaching out to a bunch of balloons was combined with a caption that began: ‘Friday was my son Spencer’s first birthday. My daughter Kit is pretty cautious with new people. Not this guy.’

As regular, she maintained his privacy by keeping his face out of the shot.
Talking about Spencer’s sweet disposition, she said: ‘If you happen to make eye contact with Spencer, he lights up like you are old war buddies and he makes a beeline to you.’
‘I had Spencer during Covid and it was a strange isolated time, but the instant I saw him I knew he would make everything better. And he did! Happy birthday, Spike!’
Mindy kept her pregnancy completely quiet until announcing Spencer’s birth last September.
Finding a silver lining in the situation, last month she told Good Morning America: ‘I’m hesitant to even say this because obviously the past year and a half has been so challenging and continues to be with the variant … but being pregnant during COVID was, in my estimation, kind of a dream.’

Kaling admitted she’d ‘learned a lot’ about parenting during the pandemic while speaking at the #WOW2021 event in May.
‘I don’t know if I recommend everyone having a secret pregnancy during a worldwide pandemic, but I will say I learned a lot from it.’
‘Definitely like a once-in-a-lifetime type of thing,’ she said.
Mindy welcomed older daughter Katherine back in 2017.
She previously shed light on her decision not to reveal her daughter’s father, telling the New York Times Magazine: ‘My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it.’
