Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child, but the actress does not have a boyfriend, according to popular celebrity relationship site, Who’s Dated Who.
On Monday afternoon, E! News reported that the 38-year-old actress is expecting her first child. However, the father of her child was not made clear. An unnamed source told the site that Kaling’s pregnancy was “an unexpected surprise,” but did not clarify who the baby’s father is.
Social media has been going crazy trying to figure out who Kaling is dating or who might have fathered her child since news broke that she’s pregnant. However, Kaling hasn’t gone public with the pregnancy news, nor has she made any relationship public since splitting from writer Benjamin Nugent back in 2012. The two dated for about four years before parting ways.
Kaling dated her Office co-star, B.J. Novak, before Nugent. They were together for two years and rumors that they’ve reconciled have been rather abundant over the years. In October 2016, Kaling opened up about the split and explained that she and Novak are still friends.
“I can’t speak [for] him, [but] I think for me it was challenging to be in your mid-twenties — I’m such a sentimental person and I take things very hard — but that’s the nice thing about being in long friendships. That was, like, 12 years ago when that happened, so you get over things like that, but it totally was very challenging,” Kaling told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.
Kaling told Howard Stern something similar in 2014.
“He’s a good friend of mine, yeah. He’s my best friend. He broke up with me,” she said at the time, according to Us Weekly.
Kaling has wanted to have children and had been thinking more about it in recent years.
“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 told Yahoo! Style in 2015. “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,” she added.
