Mindy Kaling is pregnant, according to reports.
E! has reported the 38-year-old Mindy Project actress is expecting her first child.
According to the celebrity news outlet, “multiple sources” have confirmed the news, with one insider – tautologically – describing the pregnancy as an “unexpected surprise”.
Kaling, who dated her Office co-star BJ Novak from 2005 to 2007 and comedian Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012, is yet to comment on or confirm the news.
Speaking to Yahoo! Style in 2015, Kaling said she was taking a relaxed attitude towards having children.
“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids. I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen,” she said, adding she was “not cavalier about who [she] would have a kid with.
She went on to say, “[The] thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier.”
In her book Why Not Me?, released in the same year, Kaling expressed concern about waiting too long to have children.
“As calm as I might be, still, about once a month, I wake up at 4 AM and lie in the dark worrying about the same handful of things.”
These “things” were revealed to include “I will never have a husband and all my female acquaintances will,” and “What if my kids are really young when I die because I waited too long to have them?”
Despite the lack of confirmation, fans of Kaling’s certainly are excited about the possibility of a new arrival.
Happier about Mindy Kaling being pregnant than I would be about someone I actually know
