If rumors are to be believed, Mindy Kaling is very suddenly pregnant, so prepare for the internet to implode with speculation about who her baby daddy might be!

Insiders told E News that the former Office star is expecting and that the pregnancy is "an unexpected surprise," but that Kaling isn't changing any of her filming or work schedules. And that's pretty much all we know.

Obviously, we're calling right now that people are going to peg B.J. Novak as a potential father. He and Kaling have been tight for decades, and we can just hear them making one of those "OK, if we're still single at 35, we'll totally get married and have a kid" pacts, and Kaling is currently 38. We haven't heard anything about their secret wedding, but hey, it's 2017. Is it really necessary to get married just because they want kids?


And Kaling definitely wants kids. She's been open about that in the past.

"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 in 2015, adding that she wanted kids "maybe imminently."

She continued, "I'm going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen."

She also described a little bit of what she would look for in a partner to have and raise children with.

"I'm not cavalier about who I would have a kid with," she said. "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."

Kaling's most recent boyfriend (that we know of) was Benjamin Nugent, but they broke up in 2012. She dated Novak from 2005 to 2007, but they've remained best friends in the decade since their breakup. So, uh, raise your hand if you're totally hoping Novak is the father of her child, because we kind of think we might be.
