Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child

Mindy Kaling has a totally new project on the way — a baby.

The actress, 38, is expecting her first child, E! News reported, with a source telling the outlet that the new bundle of joy comes as “an unexpected surprise.”

Kaling, who stars in the upcoming film adaptation of “A Wrinkle in Time,” does not plan on altering her schedule for any of her previously scheduled projects at this time, according to E! News.

The actress revealed in 2015 that she would welcome having a child in her life.

“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,” she told Yahoo! Style at the time.

It wasn’t immediately clear who the father is.

Kaling — who is known as a star on “The Office” and later her own show, “The Mindy Project” — dated author Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012.

She was previously in a relationship with her “The Office” co-star — and on-screen lover — B.J. Novak between 2005 and 2007. The duo remain close friends.
