    Mindy Kaling "panics a lot" about being a single mother

    The 44-year-old actress has Katherine, six, and three-year-old Spender from a previous relationship and explained that whilst she finds being a single parent "really rewarding", she is aware that she is the sole earner in the house and she needs to provide for them


    She told WSJ Magazine: "It's really rewarding, being a mom and spending time with these two people who look like me. I love them, and they're so funny. In terms of my career, I'm a single mom, I'm the breadwinner in the house.

    "So there's a lot of panic that comes with that, the buck stops with me, I have to earn money for them.

    "Having kids is everything - wanting to be a good role model and wanting to produce content that doesn't embarrass them and makes them proud is another layer to my life and a complication that I welcome."

    The former 'Office' star - who has never publicly revealed the identity of her children's father - also explained that she was in such a minority growing up that it is "inspiring" to know that her own kids will grow up in a world where diversity is more celebrated amongst the youth of today as she watches her children "embrace" their identities.

    She said: "When I was growing up, I was one of two Indian kids through my entire middle and high school. We didn't live in a really Indian area. I felt so othered and that I needed to hide that identity. Now what's really inspiring about young people and young women of color is how much they embrace their identities."
