Oprah Winfrey Gave Mindy Kaling's Baby The Most Thoughtful And Extravagant Present

The host and actress gave her friend the most adorable gift.


Oprah Winfrey, who recently revealed she had to spell her name out at a Starbucks, is known for her generosity.

On her legendary talk show the host was famed for her manic gift giving, so much so, it's become a meme, 'You get a car, you get a car' etc.

However, her presents aren't only for her fans and audience members, but her friends too. Mindy Kaling, Winfrey's co-star in A Wrinkle in Time and friend, has revealed that the 64 year-old gave her and her newborn daughter, Katherine, an adorable gift.


Speaking to USA Today the The Office alumnus detailed how the Academy Award nominated actress surprised her and her daughter, who was born in December, with the most thoughtful and extravagant prezzie ever.

The The Mindy Show star explained how it unfolded, 'I got a call from my assistant. She said, "Oprah's assistant contacted me, she'd like to drop off a present." I'm thinking, that's so nice, like, (it's) probably flowers. I had a kid, I'm a single mum. That's really nice Oprah remembered.'

Sitting down with Reese Witherspoon and Winfrey on Sunday she continued, '"Two men are going to be coming to your house", they said, "with a U-Haul truck". All you want in life is to hear that two men in a U-Haul truck are coming to your house because Oprah sent them,' said Kaling. 'I was supposed to go to work that day (but I was like), I gotta be here.'

So what sort of gift is big enough to fill a truck? Some sort of livestock? Or maybe a tree house?

'They arrived with a hand-carved bookcase, prettier than any professional dollhouse you had ever seen that contained a hundred of the classic essential books in children's literature,' said Kaling. 'And I held my baby up to it and I said, "Did you see what Miss Winfrey did for you?"'

Look away now if your heart is already exploding, because it gets cuter,

'Each book has 'Katherine's Book Club" on it,' Kaling explained, concluding, 'It's the most amazing gift.'

Looks like Katherine already has her fairy godmother.
