Holy shit! Move over Mindy Lahiri because the real life Mindy is apparently pregnant with her first child!
Mindy or her reps have yet to officially announce their news themselves so at this point, we’re still considering it a rumor.
As for who the baby daddy could be, your guess is as good as ours. Our picks? Either her former on-again-off-again boyfriend and current BFF B.J Novak or New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. There’s no proof that Kaling and Booker have actually met in person, per se, but the two had an adorable Twitter exchange so we’re still holding out hope that could happen. Also, how gorgeous would that baby be??
As for her professional life, Mindy has a ton going on. Not only does she have the sixth season of The Mindy Project airing on Hulu in the fall, but she’s also working on a new TV show called Champions, a TV show adapting a former Obama staffers memoir, and is appearing in Ocean’s Eight and A Wrinkle in Time. So when is she going to have time to have this baby? Who knows! But if anyone can figure it out, it’s Mindy.
Stay tuned for the official word that Kaling is indeed with child.
