Mindy is notoriously quiet about her private life, and hasn’t revealed the identity of her child’s father. 

Revealing why she keeps it a secret, she said: “My professional life is the only thing that I feel I have a lot of control over – romantic stuff is a little bit more mysterious.”

Mindy previously opened up about what kind of mother she’d like to be to her little one.

“I’d like to be the fun mum,” she said. “I know I’m gonna be the dorky mum. So it could be kind of fun, too. I think that would be nice.”

She continued: “My mum was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did.

“My career choice was not something that she was familiar with, and she was just so supportive of that.
