Watch: Xosha Roquemore Talks Mindy Kaling's Pregnancy

Mindy Kaling is opening up about becoming a mom.

In an extended clip from Willie Geist's interview with Kaling, the Mindy Project actress talks about becoming a mom and how she feels "anxious" about the experience. "Do you think you're gonna be the fun mom?" Geist asks Kaling. "Because I think that's the expectation."

Kaling tells Geist that she's "really happy that that's what I project," but right now she just feels "so anxious."

She then added, "I'd like to be the fun mom, I know I'm gonna be the dorky mom. So if I can be kind of fun too, I think that would be nice."

Mindy Kaling's Best Quotes Before Motherhood

Last month, a sneak peek of Kaling's interview with Geist was released in which she talked about the idea of becoming a mom for the first time.

"It's so unknown to me," Kaling said. "I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I'm like, 'OK, it's out of my hands,' which is kind of a fun feeling."

Back in July, E! News exclusively confirmed that Kaling is expecting her first child. Then in early September, Kaling's Mindy Project co-stars revealed she is having a baby girl.
