Mindy Kaling recently gave birth to her second child, welcoming a baby boy named Spencer.

The 41-year-old told PopSugar: ‘I felt like the minute I got back from the hospital, there was a gorgeous gift for Spencer, with beautiful clothes and toys.

‘And this is why you know a gift is from Reese Witherspoon — she also got my older kid something. My daughter, who didn’t do anything, got all these beautiful clothes and toys, too. 

‘And she sent us food, so we didn’t have to cook for four days. So, that’s to me just a very Reese Witherspoon-type present where it’s thoughtful but in a very macro way. Like, she really knows what’s going on in your life. That was impressive to me.’

She previously credited Oprah Winfrey as the best gift giver, when she welcomed her first child, daughter Katherine Swati, two, in December of 2017.

Kaling told Stephen Colbert of his baby gift in March of 2018: ‘It straight-up sucks compared to what Oprah gave me and I mean that with love. The bookcase was carved in the shape of an old-timey castle. It’s such a nice present! And yours was such a nice present.’

Kaling, Winfrey, 66, and Witherspoon, 44, starred together in Ava DuVernay’s 2018 feature adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time.

It was revealed in May that Kaling and Parks and Recreation writer Dan Goor signed on to write a new script for Witherspoon’s long-awaited Legally Blonde 3.

20 years later: Kaling teased what's to come last month on The Today Show: 'It was really daunting because it's such an iconic movie. The thing that made it the most appealing was the fact that she's now 20 years older'

Fun age: She added: 'For me, I thought making her that age and having her gone through the same kinds of things that I've gone through as a 40-year-old, made it fun'

‘So what is like the 42-year-old version of Elle Woods? Like what is she like? Is she as chipper? Has life gotten her down at all? Has she become cynical at all? Or is she exactly the same?’

“For me, I thought making her that age and having her gone through the same kinds of things that I’ve gone through as a 40-year-old, made it fun.’ 

She also said of her secret pregnancy during quarantine: ‘With him, I would occasionally have meetings. So from here up, I would have to look nice, but I was just kind of like pregnant, and no one saw. And I just thought, “What if I could get away with this?”‘
