Kaling wrote that her dad is “dad is too shy” for her to post an Instagram photo of him, but she shared that every single day since the birth of her daughter, Katherine, her dad has visited his grandchild.
“Even when I moved to New York or London for work, he Skyped with her on the phone,” she wrote. “The first time he was unable to see her in person every day was during Covid, and then, for three months he met her outside a glass door in his mask and gloves at my house and talked to her. He would drop off homemade puzzles and Indian food. It’s funny how you can love your own father even more by seeing how they love your kids. I’m so lucky to have him in my life. ❤️ “
