Mindy Kaling Shared a Photo of Her Son, Spencer, for the First Time

Mindy Kaling keeps her personal life pretty private, but she did decide to honor her son Spencer’s first birthday with an adorable Instagram post. And of course he’s the cutest thing ever.

The Never Have I Ever creator posted a pic of her baby boy facing away from the camera and looking at balloons. (Kaling’s daughter, Katherine, has also only appeared in photos with her face obscured for privacy). The Office star wrote in the caption, “Friday was my son Spencer’s first birthday. My daughter Kit is pretty cautious with new people. Not this guy. 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!”

Casual nickname reveal! Spike Kaling is just about the coolest name I could possibly think of.

Sweet messages immediately poured in from Kaling’s friends, including a “Happy Birthday” from Oscar winner Octavia Spencer. (Wait…is Spencer named after Octavia Spencer? Let’s go with it! Sure! Why not?) “Awwww!! Happy Birthday! ❤️❤️❤️” Angela Kinsey wrote. (She played Angela on The Office.) 

Mindy Kaling has previously revealed that downtime during her pandemic pregnancy was “a real gift,” telling People, “I felt really scrutinized during my first pregnancy and I think that it was such a joy to spend the last seven months of my pregnancy under the cover of just nobody was out, nobody was taking photos.”

I totally understand, but I personally wouldn’t mind seeing a few more pics of her kids—if she has any adorable ones lying around and feels comfortable sharing, of course. I love cute babies; sue me!
