Mindy Kaling Ellen Show Interview About Daughter June 2019

Mindy Kaling Compares Her Daughter, a 1-Year-Old, to Tony Soprano: "She's in the Mob"

Mindy Kaling might be associated with shows like The Office and her own The Mindy Project, but at home, her life is basically The Sopranos. The actress recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she regaled the talk-show host with a hilarious anecdote about her 1-year-old daughter, Katherine Kaling, and how she's essentially a mom boss.

"I didn't know how much bribery there was in being a parent. Every time I see her, it's like Tony Soprano," Mindy said. She added, "I go up to her, and I'm like, 'Hey, you have to give me the remote control.' And she's like, 'Give me your car keys.' She's like in the mob. She's smart, and she can barely talk. So, that's my life now." Watch Mindy make the astute and hysterical comparison above.
