From creatively posed pictures to well thought out social media posts, every mom-to-be wants to be the one that shares with the world they are expecting a bundle of joy. However, when writer and actress Mindy Kaling told her inner circle of celebrity pals that she was going to be a mom, she never thought she would be outed by none other than Oprah.

"At first if it was like, 'O.K., if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person,'" Kaling told Ellen DeGeneres on her show last week. "And you also can't be like, 'Hey, Oprah, zip it,' because she's almost like a religious figure . . . I think I learned a long time ago it's probably not a good idea to reprimand Oprah."

According to Kaling, Oprah spilled the baby news to People Magazine last July, but she isn't mad at all. While Kaling wasn't the one to announce she was having a baby, she did announce the baby's gender. Mindy is going to be a Mamma to a little girl.

She even joked that Oprah telling the world about her baby will actually make a pretty awesome story to tell her daughter someday. "I actually thought, like, well, O.K., if there's one person I have to tell my daughter that revealed her existence into the world, Oprah's pretty good."

We agree with that one, Mindy, and now we just want to know what gift Oprah is going to bring to the baby shower? Can Mindy expect a few of Oprah's favorite things or even "You get a stroller. You get a stroller. Everyone gets a stroller!"
