Mindy Kaling has recently busy promoting her role in Ava DuVernay’s highy anticipated Disney film, A Wrinkle in Time, but now she's getting ready for the next big role: motherhood. E! News is reporting that the actress is currently pregnant with her first child, and that Kaling could not be more excited.
Sources close to #MindyKaling told E! News that the pregnancy was "an unexpected surprise", but the actress has been very open about her desire to have children in the past. During an interview with Yahoo Style in 2015, Mindy Kaling voiced her thoughts about the possibility of having children, and was very candid about when that might happen:
"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, maybe imminently. 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."
There is very little information regarding Kaling’s pregnancy at the time, including the identity of the paternal party. Although Kaling dated BJ Novak and Benjamin Nugent in the past, she is not publicly involved with anyone at the moment. Many have speculated that she is involved with New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, based on a Twitter exchange the two had earlier this year:
E! News's sources assured fans that Kaling’s pregnancy will not affect her upcoming projects, and everything she has scheduled for the foreseeable future will continue as planned. Mindy Kaling is currently preparing for the sixth and final season of The Mindy Project, which will premiere on Hulu later this year. We want to send our heartfelt congratulations to Mindy Kaling, and wish her all the best.
