Or should I say...herstory (sorry).

She is now the first woman, first Black woman, first Black person, and first person of South Asian heritage to be elected vice president.

As all the celebrity reactions rolled in, one that got me all emotional came from none other than Mindy Kaling.

Next to two photos of Kamala Harris now and as a child, Mindy tweeted, "Crying and holding my daughter, 'look baby, she looks like us.'"

Crying and holding my daughter, “look baby, she looks like us.”

Mindy is the mother of two children — her daughter, Kit, is 2 years old.

Plus, she's been a vocal supporter of Kamala for some time now — even collabing in videos with the VP-elect. "I'm voting for my daughter Kit," she previously wrote on Instagram. "I want her to grow up with leaders who think and speak with integrity."

All the best to Mindy and her family!
