Mindy Kaling didn't break news of her pregnancy with a clever announcement. She hasn't streamed scenes from a gender reveal party or even shared the identity of her baby's father. But now, the first-time mom-to-be is opening up about what lies ahead for her.

Sunday TODAY has released a preview of an interview with The Mindy Project star. While the full interview will air on September 10, a clip features the multi-hyphenate opening up about her biggest role yet.

When asked how she's feeling about motherhood, Mindy said she's "really excited"—but she also admitted she's experiencing what so many other future mamas feel. Mindy acknowledged that motherhood is full of unknowns and that stepping into it will force her out of her comfort zone. But not knowing quite what to expect is part of the fun, according to Mindy.
