It promises to be her biggest role to date. Multiple sources have reported to E! News that the Wrinkle In Time actress is expecting her first child.
An insider close to the actress says that the pregnancy was “an unexpected surprise” and that the pregnancy will not affect any production schedules for her impending projects.
Kaling has openly talked about her desire to be a mother. She was interviewed by Yahoo! Style recently and told them, “I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids.”
“I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”
Mindy’s world is about to change, and it appears that change was already in the air for the actress, even before she knew she was pregnant. Her show, The Mindy Project is slated to run its sixth and final season on Hulu this year. She discussed the decision to end the show with EW, “I mean this half-jokingly, but at a certain point, it was like, I think she’s dated every man in Manhattan. Sex and the City lasted for, what, six seasons with 10 episodes each? I don’t know that there’s been a show about a woman trying to find love in New York City that has lasted quite this long. And frankly, there are no more actors in Hollywood left to date.”
We’re happy for the actress and wish her the best.
