Mindy Kaling is Vogue India's December cover star – it marks the first time the multi-talented star's appeared on the cover for the publication.

Sharing the news with her Instagram followers, she revealed on Wednesday that she almost didn't appear on the cover.

"I was so excited to be asked to be [on] the cover of @vogueindia's December issue," she said, "but seriously nervous because I would have to shoot it six weeks after giving birth to my son Spencer."

In October the actress shared she'd secretly welcomed a baby boy – she's also mom to two-year-old Katherine.

"I was not feeling body confident, and even considered saying no. But @katiegreenthal and Vogue surrounded me with talented and wonderful people, and now I'm thrilled I have these photos as a memento of this very specific time in my life," she continued on Instagram.

"'Postpartum pandemic fabulous' is what I like to call it," she said.
