Mindy Kaling's daughter might have learned a lot from her mother's on-screen gossipy roles.
In a recent interview, Kaling revealed that her daughter, Katherine "Kit" Swati, 4, is "a little bit of a tattle tale."
"I'm excited because she was a little indifferent to her younger brother [Spencer Avu, 23 months], and now he's really useful to her because she can be like, 'Mom, he ate a pretzel off the floor. Get him in trouble!'" Kaling said.
Kaling has even tried to explain to her tot that she doesn't need to rag on her little sibling. "I'm like, 'It's OK. We don't have to narc on our little brother. He's not hurting anyone that he's eating the pretzel off the floor,'" Kaling shared.
The Never Have I Ever creator's been quite open about her experience with bringing up her children, such as the time when the two saw snow for the first time.
"The upside of this nor'easter is that my kids got to see snow and be in my home state for the first time! They could hardly believe it," Kaling said in an Instagram post from earlier this year. "I sound like a bad greeting card, but it's so beautiful seeing experiences from my own childhood through their eyes. The joy, the surprise."
The 43-year-old added, "Sometimes it's such a powerful feeling I want to cry. So yeah, I'm just that weird emotional Indian woman lugging a sled up the hill."
"I wouldn't be able to keep my full-time professional career and have two children under the age of 3 without the incredibly strong relationship I have with my nanny," she said. "Also, with my dad, who comes over to the house at least twice a day to take my son out for walks and to pick up my daughter and bring her home. My village is small, and I wish it was bigger."
Kaling spoke about her children in the Tuesday, August 9, episode of Today.
