The 'Mindy Project' star joked about the arrival of her little girl as she admitted it had been a busy time.

She joked on Instagram: "I usually do a holiday dinner with the young women that work with me but I've had a busy week! So they brought the holiday dinner to me ... It's a You've Got Mail Norah Ephron-themed holiday dinner, cooked and orchestrated by @asekar95 and @yo_its_hmo and it's happening TONIGHT at my house. Look at this menu! Look at these Nora Ephron deep cuts! (Maybe for dessert we will have coffee... Patricia? Patricia's amazing. Patricia makes coffee nervous. (sic)"

Mindy welcomed her baby girl into the world last week.

She announced her pregnancy back in August this year, and stated in October that she was "having a great time" being pregnant, as she had begun to realise she took a lot of things for granted before her stomach started to swell.

She said: "I'm very, very pregnant. I've had a pretty great time of it so far, but I think I took a lot for granted before this, now that I'm in my current situation. Like, sitting, I'm obsessed with sitting and even when I was standing back there I was looking at this chair and I was like, 'Awww, can't wait to sit in that chair!'"

Mindy's pregnancy announcement was somewhat dampened when her 'A Wrinkle In Time' co-star Oprah Winfrey managed to let the news slip prior to her official announcement, but Mindy insisted she wasn't upset about the gaffe, as she can now tell her daughter the story involving legendary talk show host.

She quipped: "At first I was like, OK if anyone was going to announce big news about your private life, Oprah Winfrey's the person. You can't complain that much about it, and you can't be like, 'Hey, Oprah, zip it!' because she's almost like a religious figure. I thought, 'OK, if there's one person I have to tell my daughter who revealed her existence to the world, Oprah's pretty good.'"
