Mindy Kaling

Sentimental moments.

As we reported, Mindy Kaling gave birth to her sweet baby girl, Katherine Swati Kaling, on December 15 — and even though we still don't know who the baby daddy is, we are learning some more details behind the little angel's name.

Turns out, Swati is the name of the actress' mother, Dr. Swati Chokalingam, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2012.

It's said The Office alum found out about her mother's passing the same day The Mindy Project was picked up by Fox. Bittersweet.

We couldn't be happier for Mindy's little fam!
