Stars like Mindy Kaling and Brie Bella settled in with their adorable kids to watch the inauguration of Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden on January 20, and shared sweet photos on Instagram from the day they’ll surely remember for the rest of their lives.
Mindy Kaling’s Daughter, Kit, Watches Kamala Harris Get Sworn In
It’s no secret that Mindy is one of Vice President Harris’ biggest fans. The Mindy Project alum, 41, even campaigned for her during her 2019 presidential run, filming a video where they cooked traditional Indian foods together. When Kamala was elected on November 7, Mindy tweeted out a photo of the new VP as a child, writing, “Crying and holding my daughter, ‘look baby, she looks like us.’”
Her words made a lasting impression on her three-year-old, Kit Kaling. “I was at work, but apparently she said: ‘Is that mommy? It looks like mommy,’” Mindy wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of Kit sitting on the couch while watching the inauguration. “Best compliment I ever got! It matters. Happy Inauguration everyone.”

She shared a sleepy, makeup-free photo of herself and the kiddos still in their pajamas, waiting for the festivities to begin. Remember, it all started at 7:00am on the west coast! “We all woke up late but just in time for the inauguration,” Brie wrote on Instagram. “First time I get to sit with my kids and explain it all to them!!! Bird said she wants Gaga’s dresses!! Such a special day!!”
