Mindy Kaling may have a new project in the works. Though details are scarce, the 38-year-old actress is reportedly pregnant with her first child, per E! News, which received the news from "multiple sources." One "insider" says the pregnancy was an "unexpected surprise," but both People and the Hollywood Reporter note that the comedian and actress has spoken in the past about her desire to be a mom. "I'm going to be fast and loose about kids," she told Yahoo Style in 2015. "I'm going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen." She added, however, that she's "not cavalier about who I would have a kid with." No word on who the dad could be. (The last we heard of Kaling's love life, she was flirting with a senator on Twitter.)
