If you have yet to catch an episode of the comedic gem known as The Mindy Project, you better hurry. With one season left in the game, expectant mom Mindy Kaling announced her show will touch on mom-shaming -- which, sadly, is a subject matter too many mothers know all too well.


The 38-year-old Mindy Project actress-creator-producer-writer turned heads at the Television Critics Association's summer press event on July 27 where she officially "debuted" her baby bump on the red carpet.

And as for said debut, while there was no official press release -- or squire who made a grand announcement before Lady Kaling's stilettos stepped in front of cameras -- we think this reported mama-to-be looks happy and amazing (honestly, she always does).

During the press event, Mindy (who plays Dr. Mindy Lahiri on the series) and Matt Warburton, a show executive producer, teased what Mindy Project fans can expect -- including a mom-shaming episode that unites Kaling with another popular TV mom.

"I think [Mindy Lahiri is] going to learn a little bit more about how to be a good, involved parent," Warburton told TCA event attendees, according to Us Weekly. "We have a really funny episode where [Modern Family's] Julie Bowen plays a rival mother who thinks that Mindy's not doing that great of a job."

Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) is going to be on The Mindy Project? Okay!

"[It's] a little bit about mom-shaming and that's cool," Kaling added. "[A] lot those juicy ripped-from-the-blogger-headline story lines."

Given the show is a comedy, we can only imagine the laughs Mindy and Julie will deliver. Mom-shaming is beyond horrible, so hopefully the show can spotlight how foolish and unnecessary it is.

... 'cause ain't nobody got time for that!
