Mindy Kaling's Baby Daddy Mystery Shows No Sign of Dying Down on Twitter

Jenn is perhaps best known as the author of the popular parenting blog Breed ‘Em and Weep (2005-2012). She’s written for many magazines, newspapers and websites, including Brain, Child Magazine, Literary Mama, and The Boston Globe. Jenn’...

Who's the daddy? Mindy Kaling's not telling

A day and a half after the story broke that The Office actor, author of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and all-around awesome and funny human Mindy Kaling is pregnant, the news continues to engulf the internet in "OMG, who's the daddy?" flames.

"Multiple sources" have told E News that the star's pregnancy was a completely "unexpected surprise," which just adds to the swirling tornado of questions. Seriously, we can't get away from this story, people!

That's pretty impressive considering Kaling herself has yet to confirm the story.

The same sources have reported that Kaling doesn't plan to shift the production schedules of any of her projects, either. (Someone should probably explain newborns to Kaling. Girl, you might want to keep things a little flex. Call us for deets.)

Kaling has never dropped any clues about who she might want to procreate with or when. Kelly Kapoor, however — Kaling's character on The Office — never beat around the bush about wanting to have a gazillion little babies with B.J. Novak's Office character, Ryan.

“I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen,” Kaling said in one interview. “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.”

Mission accomplished, or so it seems. This would be Kaling's first child. We have all the feels!

The identity of the father is a total mystery — or is it? Humanity is determined to solve this case judging by the feeding frenzy happening on Twitter.

In 24 hours, Twitter has divided into clear camps. B.J. Novak, Kaling's frequent on-screen love and off-screen collaborator, is Twitter's vote for papa duty. He's winning a current Twitter poll by a landslide.

But New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker — who reportedly asked Kaling out on a date earlier this year — would be an acceptable runner-up for some.

We're telling you, not even Beyoncé could top Kaling's bombshell right now. This is major news, y'all. Even people who aren't usually into this celeb pregnancy watch stuff are into it.

We promise to keep you posted. In the meantime, we're going to go carve "B.J. and Mindy 4EVER" into a nearby tree.
