A Wrinkle in Time star Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child later this year.
According to PEOPLE, The Mindy Project star, 38, “just started telling her friends she is pregnant.”
The funnylady is remaining mum on the identity of her baby’s father.
“She is not telling anyone, not even close friends, who the father is,” says the source, adding that she is not dating anyone at the moment.
Another source told E! News that the pregnancy was “an unexpected surprise” for Kaling, who is set to star in the upcoming films A Wrinkle in Time and Ocean’s Eight.
The mom-to-be has written about motherhood in her second memoir Why Not Me?
“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” she writes. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen. 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.”
The Office alum lost her mother Swati to cancer on the same day Fox picked up The Mindy Project in 2012.
