Oprah gave Mindy Kaling's daughter the most incredible gift

Mindy Kaling appeared on Stephen Colbert's talk show last night to talk about her new Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time. Kaling described it as the "gift that just keeps giving for years and years". The 38-year-old writer and actress gave birth to her first daughter, Katherine Swati Kaling, in December.

I didn't understand how to be around babies", she told Colbert.

"Over text message, Reese talked me through how to carry an infant vehicle seat on the airplane", she told People.

Namely, an ornate wooden bookcase in the shape of a castle, packed with children's literature and each book inscribed with "Katherine's Book Club". It sounds about the best that anyone could do for a new mom!
