Mindy Kaling already has her next role lined up: Mommy.
Kaling has her hands full, starring in Ava DuVernay’s $100-million adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s fantasy novel “A Wrinkle in Time,” but E! News reported Monday that motherhood is imminent for the star.
Sources told the entertainment outlet that the pregnancy comes as an “Unexpected surprise” to the star of “The Office” and “The Mindy Project,” but Kaling has never shied away from the idea of having children.
Here, we’ll start: In March, Kaling and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker had a very flirty exchange on Twitter that seemed to end in the pair agreeing to go on a date, though Booker later tried to strip the romantic overtones from the arrangement later.
It’s still unclear whether Kaling and Booker ever had their enchanted evening, but wouldn’t it be delightful if today’s announcement were proof?
Alternate theory: Kaling and former beau and bestie BJ Novak are working on a book together that was originally announced in May 2015.
Representatives for Kaling did not immediately respond to The Times’ request for comment Monday afternoon.
