Mindy Kaling Shared a Rare Video of Her Son Spencer Being So Adorable

·2 min read

Mindy Kaling is celebrating her son Spencer's second birthday, and just shared a rare and incredibly sweet video of him. "Happy 2nd birthday to my son Spencer, who is the human personification of a hug," she wrote on Instagram along with a clip of Spencer playing with his shadow. "I can’t describe the intense joy it is to be your mom. You remind this old cynical lady that the world is full of wonder, and fun can be found in the most mundane places. Here Spencer is greeting his friend, the morning shadow in his crib."

Mindy is one of many celebrity parents who have chosen not to show photos of her kids faces, and she explained her decision to People back in 2021.

"I have no judgment for people in the public eye who share photos and videos of their children," she said. "My sense is that [my kids] have no real consent right now to do that. ... I feel like I might as well wait until they get old enough so they can tell me if they want to be part of my social media or not."

"Sometimes it's just a safety thing," she elaborated. "I don't want to be at the airport and have someone be like, 'Spencer, Katherine,' and have them look to the people as though they know them or they're friends. I think that could be really confusing as a kid. So that's the reason I'm doing it, but it's hard because they're such a huge part of my life. And I'm like any parent where I'm proud of the things they do. I think they're so cute, and of course, I want other people to see it!"

Makes perfect sense.
