Kaling then expressed her gratitude for Colbert's nice, yet "very old-fashioned", baby gift - a solid white newborn outfit from Pixie Lily, located in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina. Kaling described it as the "gift that just keeps giving for years and years".
"When you have a baby, you don't necessarily know at the beginning that you're going to be up every three hours", she said during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (08Mar18).

"I got a call from my assistant", Kaling told the publication, in an interview alongside Winfrey and fellow "A Wrinkle in Time" co-star Reese Witherspoon. "But I think that'd be kind of a cool thing, to see a dinosaur". I had a kid, I'm a single mom. "Now I'm like let them cry, let them do whatever they want, they can sit on me, poop on me because now I know more", she insisted.
The gift was a hand-carved bookcase engraved with the phrase "Katherine's Book Club", in honor of Kaling's daughter, Katherine Swati Kaling. The bookcase was created to look like the treehouse Kaling's character Mrs.
Reese - who also has daughter Ava, 18, and son Deacon, 14, with her ex-husband Ryan Phillippe - said: "I'd have to go way, way back because I have a 4-year-old who loves dinosaurs and I think it'd be kinda cool to see dinosaurs even though it's pretty scary cause they're kind of big".
"It was the best I could do", Winfrey said.
Now if we can only get on her gift-giving list.
