The world is about to become a much cooler place and not just because Beyoncé gave us a treat on her twins’ one-month birthday. Actress, writer, producer and showrunner Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child and if we thought Mindy Lahiri as a mom was something to behold, we can’t wait to see what Kaling will do in the role.
Sources told E! News that the baby is “an unexpected surprise” but it won’t affect her work schedule and upcoming projects. Kaling is busy, not only with her show but she’s also got A Wrinkle in Time and Ocean’s Eight on the go, so she’s one busy mama-to-be.
As far as parenting, Kaling said in a 2015 interview with Yahoo! Style, that she’s going to be “fast and loose about kids” and wasn’t going to “actively plan,” adding, “if it happens, it would happen.”
Oh, it’s happening, and her fans are over the moon about it.
Just as Beyonce gives birth bringing a celeb pregnancy to an end he gives me pregnant Mindy Kaling what have I done to deserve this blessing

Not that it’s any of our business BUT how amazing and romantic comedy-like would it be if it was ex, and longtime pal, BJ Novak (though, if it’s not, no offence to the actual baby daddy)? People have been rooting for these two for ages, and even if they’re not in a relationship and it’s a totally platonic agreement like the kiddie version of My Best Friend’s Wedding, or what Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt‘s characters did in Friends With Kids, we’d totally be OK with it. Just saying.
