Fans were shocked when it was announced that Mindy Kaling was pregnant. Well, sources are revealing exclusively to Life & Style that The Mindy Project star is excited and has another surprise in store because she’s already planning for baby No. 2!
“Mindy loves babies and can’t wait to be a mom,” a source says. “She wants two kids and has no time to waste.” Mindy, 38, has kept the identity of her baby’s father under wraps, but that’s not stopping her from talking to her friends about having a second child as soon as possible. “Mindy says she’s determined to have two children by the time she hits 40,” the insider adds.
E! News broke the news of her pregnancy and reported that it was an “unexpected surprise” for the comedienne. Mindy has yet to confirm the baby news herself, but she has always been vocal about wanting to start a family — whether she is in a relationship or not.
“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” she told Yahoo! Style last year. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.” She also portrays a single mom on her hit Hulu show, so she definitely has gotten some practice around kids.
As for who her baby daddy could be, fans are speculating it is her on-again, off-again boyfriend and longtime friend B.J. Novak — who starred on The Office alongside Mindy. “The gift he has given me is the utter and total belief that I am one of the greats,” she told The Guardian of B.J. “And, it is an intoxicating feeling.” In her book she wrote of her ex, “Soul mates is what you aim for, but soup snakes is what you get sometimes.”
