Several sources have confirmed that Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child. The Mindy Project star is now going to be a mom in real life, too.

The fact that Mindy Kaling is pregnant is, according to one source speaking to E! News, “an unexpected surprise.” We’re not sure is the surprise factor is for her, too, or just for us, the rest of the world. That we know of, there was no man on the radar.

However, Mindy did let her audience know, back in 2015, that she was going to have a child soon. She told Yahoo! Style that she wasn’t making plans for becoming a mother, but she wasn’t not making plans, either. “I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids”. She added: “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

Kaling continued by saying all people she talked about kids with said that they wished they had become parents earlier.

The comedienne was last romantically linked with her Office co-star B.J. Novak. The two had an on and off relationship while writing and starring on the show. Even now, years later, she says they have a weird relationship. “He is not my boyfriend, but he is not my best friend.”. She explained: “I guess you could describe our relationship as a ‘romantically charged camaraderie with loud arguments,’ but I don’t think Facebook would accept this as a new status.”

The last man she dated, that everyone knows about, is Sen. Cory Booke. On March 23 of this year, he invited her for dinner with a Tweet and she agreed, also with a tweet.

He even offered to send a car to pick her up.

However, there is no word on whether the two ever went on the date.
