Mindy Kaling: Stephen Colbert's Baby Gift "Sucked" Compared to Oprah Winfrey's

Mindy Kaling: Stephen Colbert's Baby Gift

The actress welcomed daughter Katherine last December (17) and has since been extremely busy caring for the infant and promoting her latest film, Disney's A Wrinkle in Time.

In an interview with People magazine, the Cambridge native said her A Wrinkle in Time co-star Reese Witherspoon, who has three children, shared some helpful advice on being a new mother amid the traveling required by her work.

"With a baby girl, you get sent a lot of colorful things and pink things", the 38-year-old actress explained, "and I thought this was so sweet and very fancy". "She said, 'Oprah's assistant contacted me, she'd like to drop off a present.' I'm thinking, that's so nice, like, [it's] probably flowers".

Just in time for March Break, A Wrinkle in Time is poised to take over the box office this weekend.

"I was not a kid person at all".

"On planes when babies would cry, I would be mad at the families. There's a black and white photo of me holding my baby, hoping for a new [life]".

While Mindy reassured the late night how much she loved his 19th century-era present, she confessed it "straight up sucks" compared to Oprah's extravagant gift - which had to be sent in a truck and brought in by two delivery men!

Namely, an ornate wooden bookcase in the shape of a castle, packed with children's literature and each book inscribed with "Katherine's Book Club".
