In a recent appearance at the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kailing revealed the big secret and said she still receives cashing from the time she portrayed Kelly Kapoor. In addition, Kaling worked as a writer and executive producer of The Office.
"The checks are still pretty good, they're pretty good," Kaling joked about the pay. "They're not, like, buy a house good. But they're like, help pay for your kid's education good."
Kaling is the mother of two! The actress welcomed her first daughter, Katherine, back in 2017. The godfather of her Katherine is also an actor from the TV series — and former boyfriend of Kaling — B.J. Novak. In 2020, the actress welcomed her second child, a baby boy named Spencer.

The Office was created by Greg Daniels, who was based on Ricky Gervais & Stephen Merchant's original U.K. version. The TV series starred Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B.J. Novak, Rainn Wilson, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson, Ellie Kemper, and Angela Kinsey. It was aired from 2005 to 2013 and had 9 seasons.
By the end of season 8, Kaling decided to leave the popular show to start her own series called The Mindy Project. “I was nervous, leaving a show after eight years, having to say goodbye to my friends and the people that made it feel like a comfy place and a hit show," she said at that time.
"So I took the ones that I thought were available and I had great relationships with to come with me," she added. "They were people like B.J. Novak, who was an executive producer on the pilot, and Ed Helms, who plays a love interest of mine. There’s a lot of crossovers, so it felt seamless.”
