Mindy Kaling got 'the most useful' parenting advice from Reese Witherspoon


Gift giving isn't a competition.but if it were, Oprah Winfrey would easily beat Stephen Colbert.

Award-winning actress Mindy Kaling said she had "pure love" for science fiction as a young girl and identified with "A Wrinkle in Time" before she was ever cast as one of the upcoming film's stars.

Rather than pick something extravagant for her answer, Mindy - who welcomed her first child, a daughter named Katherine, into the world in December - decided on an answer that was closer to present day.

Unfortunately he got one-upped by Oprah, Kaling's co-star in A Wrinkle in Time. It's amusing because I didn't know when you have a baby that you're gonna be up every three hours. "We're doing so much worldwide travel, and she was giving me really practical advice on how to carry a screaming baby on the plane. So I'm up in the middle of the night with her and then afterwards it's hard to go back to sleep". I'm thinking of you.

"Over text message, Reese talked me through how to carry an infant vehicle seat on the airplane", she told People.

"I think that I was underestimated a lot in my career coming up", she said. Apparently Stephen sent the Champions actress "very nice" and "very old-fashioned" baby clothes for her 2-month-old daughter, Katherine, from his home town in SC, which didn't hold a candle to her A Wrinkle in Time costar's custom bookshelf.

"So, that's my life now", Mindy laughed.
