“If anyone is going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey is the person,” said Mindy. “You can’t complain that much about it. And you also can’t be like, ‘Hey, Oprah, zip it’ — because she’s almost like a religious figure. So if there’s one person I have to tell my daughter about that revealed her existence to the world, Oprah is pretty good.”

“I think I learned a long time ago that it’s probably not a good idea to reprimand Oprah,” she also added. “There are worse things!” LOL! 

Mindy also joked about how she appreciates sitting down a lot more now that she’s pregnant.  “I’ve had a pretty great time of it so far,” she said of her pregnancy. “But I think I took a lot for granted before this, now that I’m my current situation — like, sitting. I’m obsessed with sitting. And even when I was standing back there I was looking at this chair and I was like: ‘Can’t wait to sit in that chair. That beautiful comfy chair.’ ”
