Mindy Kaling Talking Oprah Baby Gift on Stephen Colbert

Mindy Kaling Jokes Stephen Colbert's Baby Gift "Straight Up Sucks" Compared to Oprah's

Apologies to Stephen Colbert, but did he really think he was going to be able to out-gift Oprah? The talk show host recently had Mindy Kaling on as a guest, where she couldn't help but admit that when it comes to baby gifts, Oprah reigns supreme. 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 South Carolina, which didn't hold a candle to her A Wrinkle in Time costar's custom bookshelf.

"It straight up sucks compared to what Oprah gave me. And I mean that with love, OK?" she joked during her Thursday night appearance on The Late Show. "If I'm crossing the Titanic with my baby, hoping for a new future for myself, this is the outfit I put her in. There's a black and white photo of me and my baby, hoping for a new [life]."

While old-timey baby clothes sound pretty damn cute, if we're being honest, Oprah's elaborate, hand-carved bookshelf filled with classic books for Mindy's daughter is next level. Clearly Stephen will just have to coordinate with her next time.
