Mindy Kaling is taking on the role of a lifetime! Multiple sources have revealed that the 38-year-old actress is currently expecting her first bébé, describing the pregnancy as “an unexpected surprise.” Fortunately, there will not be any changes made to production schedules for her upcoming projects.

While little else is known at present time about Mindy’s little one, years back she openly expressed wanting to have children. “I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” remarked the  A Wrinkle in Time actress. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

She also admitted that she would love to have children, at the time, “maybe imminently.” The comedian shared some insight into who she would want to welcome children into the world with, saying, “I’m not cavalier about who I would have a kid with. But the thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier.”

Although the baby father is yet to be named, we do know that Mindy Kaling previously dated Benjamin Nugent from 2008-2012 and her Office co-star B.J. Novak from 2005-2007.


A big congratulations to Mindy on the exciting pregnancy news!
