The super talented Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child, according to reports from E! News, whose source adds that the pregnancy is "an unexpected surprise." According to another source from People magazine, Mindy is not telling anyone who the father is, including her close friends.
Mindy, who's half-Tamil, has indicated in the past that she's not bound by tradition when it comes to having kids.
“I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen,” she added. “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.”
Most Tamil parents tend to have traditional views when it comes to having a child out of wedlock and would lose their sh*t if their daughter or son became pregnant without being married. But based on what Mindy has said about her late mother in the past, the reaction would most likely have been supportive.
“She was very busy, and she did not suffer fools,” Kaling told GoodHousekeeping in 2015 of her mom Swati, who died of cancer on the same day Fox picked up The Mindy Project in 2012.
“Her no-nonsense attitude is the single best thing I got from her,” adds the now-mom-to-be. “We’re hungry, ambitious people. It’s a family trait.”
