Mindy Kaling’s ‘Me’ is a best seller

‘C is for Coward’.

But in signature Kaling style, she hilariously Instagrammed the moment, which happened to occur on set while filming scenes for The Mindy Project (naturally, she also gave a shout-out to her “big butt”). “When you split the seam of your dress doing some physical comedy because you have a big butt and you need to be sewn up. That’s right, Mindy () and Danny (Chris Messina) welcomed their first child on The Mindy Project’s Sept. 22 episode, just one week after becoming engaged.

Mindy and Danny are fighting (ok fighting is a strong word, how about debating) about everything about the baby: what the name should be, where she should have the baby, and how she should have the baby. As the episode opens, we see Mindy and Danny in bed together, and it is such a hilarious opening as Mindy wants to have sex, but Danny isn’t up for it as having sex with a pregnant Mindy freaks him out ever so slightly. This second episode in The Mindy Project’s new season follows Danny and Mindy’s final moments before the arrival of their baby as they argue about where Mindy will actually give birth. That’s a sizeable bump from her first best seller, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (and Other Concerns), which peaked at No. 31 in 2011. (The full list will publish on Thursday.) It was a good week for Kaling: Why Not Me? (Crown Archetype) was released on Sept. 15, the same day her TV show returned for a new season, this time on Hulu.

When Mindy questions why and throws a bit of a fit, Danny asks her: “How wold you feel if you were minding your own business and a big penis came and slapped you on the head?” to which Mindy replied: “That is my life”. Mindy wants the name to be from a famous movie, have a C-section where she is totally drugged up to the point that she remembers none of it, at the most famous birthing suite in Manhattan that celebrities use. News is delighted to exclusively introduce you to Baby Leo, who is either named after Leonardo DiCaprio or Leonardo Da Vinci, depending on which parent you ask, in these brand-new photos of TV’s most adorable new arrival. Mindy, inexplicably, doesn’t recognize what he’s up to, even though she herself is an OB/GYN and at least owns a television and has seen that episode of Friends where Ross and Rachel try to do the same thing.

She is trying to convince patients in the 20s to freeze their eggs for later use at the Manhattan Fertility Expo, using the catch-phrase “Later Baby!” On the way to the expo, Mindy, Morgan, Tamra, Beverly, and the Duncan Brothers (from the natural holistic fertility clinic) get stuck on the subway while she is having contractions. News also gave fans the exclusive first look at Baby Leo and revealed what kind of mom Mindy Lahiri will be. “A lot of people have been questioning how a baby will change the dynamic, and honestly, if anything it’s given her a surprising depth as an actress to now play,” Kaling explains, “because she loves something else more than she loves herself.” Then just like that, Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me” cues in, and America’s saddest pop song (OK, OK, saddest pop song at the moment) suddenly taints the entire scene with gloom.

He tells her that a natural birth is just the fist challenge a mother has to face, and she wants to be zoned out for it, but the reality is, she can’t be drugged up for the rest of the challenges she faces. But either way, the warm and fuzzy excitement just got bombarded by Sam Smith’s melancholy falsetto, and now it’s hard not to feel sad about a cute baby. Things take a turn when Mindy’s water breaks on a stalled 2 train, with no one around to help except both Deslauriers, who quickly learn that she is resistant to their methods of natural childbirth.

And so to watch her struggle with, ‘Do I take my in-inoculated baby to go to a book signing for the Wilson brothers’ new cookbook?'” And let’s not forget about daddy Danny, shall we? Later at the office, Jeremy tries to convince the staff to come out to dinner with him and his new girlfriend, Whitney, because he doesn’t want her to think he’s a “weird loser with no friends.” Poor Jeremy.

I think he’s definitely an umbrella dad and overbearing and very worried and stuff, but I think he has such a good soul that he’ll be good for the baby too.” Executive producer Matt Warburton adds that Leo’s arrival will only highlight Mindy and Danny’s differences, saying parenthood “brings out the most them them that we’ve ever seen. Danny reads a book which gives him a number of different techniques to use, which are said to induce early labour, such as eating spicy food, drinking red wine, tweaking Mindy’s nipples, and having sex. What it does is really, to the extent that they’ve kind of dealt with what’s annoying to each other about themselves, it brings it all out to the front again. We’ve seen enough TV births to know that, as Mindy puts it, “childbirth is a horror movie.” We don’t need another sweaty, screamy subway scene to add to the trope, and meeting Leo is still just as special. Either way, Mindy is still up for having the c-section as she conveniently (which is actually one of the c-words she uses to describe the c-section) tells him that this is her birth.

They try these young and hip tactics on Tamra, but she’s already been persuaded that freezing her eggs is unnatural, thanks to a certain video by… The midwives! However, it is no joke as Mindy has actually gone into labour on the train, and in typical fashion someone has fallen onto the track, meaning the train has to be halted.

I’m gonna be so drugged out for my C-section, Donald Trump will have started his second term.” Her choice is a complete 180 from a Paleo birth: a luxurious birthing suite where there’s spa water in the IV and the option of a five-day C-section knockout package. This is when Morgan messages Danny to let him know what is going on, and in another heartwarming scene, Danny bursts through a police line and into the station. So cute that he’s talking about childbirth as the most beautiful moment of their lives when just last season he was freaking out about being a father. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and Danny goes to Brendan for some tips on how to naturally induce childbirth, despite saying that the midwives practices’ were “superstitious hoodoos for dum-dums.” So when Mindy gets home, Danny has everything set up for a nice, romantic evening ending in, hopefully, a newborn child. 1) Spicy food, 2) alcohol, 3) massage, 4) nipple stimulation (that does not go well), and 5) sexual intercourse.

Mindy of course is totally onboard with that last one, but nothing kills the vibe faster than finding a book authored by the midwives underneath the couch pillow. Right at the end of the episode, there is a scene inside a hospital room where Mindy is holding her baby, and Danny is telling her how strong she is again. Mindy loves the idea as she thinks it is to do with Leonardo DiCaprio, but she’s wrong… So there we have it… Mindy has finally given birth, and it will be interesting to see what turn the season takes from here now that Mindy is a mother.

When Mindy says she wants her Beyoncé birthing playlist, Duncan breaks out his guitar and starts playing “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad.” I would cry, too, if I were trapped with that. Whenever Mindy gets scared of doing something hard, she always pretends it’s not happening.” Danny then gets the message that Mindy’s in labor, and we see another grand Danny Castellano chase.

He apologizes to her for being a jerk and admits that he’s just as scared as she is. “But the only thing that calms me down is knowing that I’m doing this with someone that’s stronger than I am,” he says. He reassures her that she can do this, saying “You’re a stone cold bitch,” then whispering, “You’re even tougher than Ma.” Chris Messina, stop making us tear up with your emotional speeches and your beautiful face. Initiate a conversation on race, take in a homeless person for a week, start a critical mass bike ride for veganism.” —Brendan Deslaurier on how Danny can repay him for his advice This is called a marking rehearsal, by the way.
