The 38-year-old actress reportedly has a bun in the oven, according to E! News. But wait, who is the father of the baby??

An insider said that the pregnancy was "an unexpected surprise," but she has expressed wanting kids 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. "I'm going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen."


The star of "The Mindy Show," currently doesn't have a boyfriend that we know of, and we have no idea who the baby daddy is. BUT we'd be happy with any of these choices. Introducing our top picks for the father of Mindy Kaling's baby! Here are the rumors and options. 

1. B.J. Novak


Not only was he her equally unstable counterpart on "The Office," but the two were a real-life item at one point. 

Personally, seeing them get back together to raise a child could be the ultimate end to this love story — or at least a good idea for a new show (hint hint). 

2. Benjamin Nugent

Who Dated Who

Mindy reportedly dated the writer for a few years after her split with Novak. Maybe they got back together and made some magic?  

3. Steve Carell 


Okay so maybe "The Office" Steve Carell couldn't woo Mindy, but new hot 2017 Steve Carell totally could. 

Sure this could be a blow to his current happy marriage to Nancy, but I think they could make it work. 

4. Chris Messina 


Not only is he cute AF playing Danny Castellano on "The Mindy Show," but they're raising a baby on TV together. Doesn't that mean they'd be able to in real life??

5. Bryan Greenberg

The Hollywood Reporter 

He is Mindy's current boyfriend on "The Mindy Show," so he seems like the perfect candidate. Cute, funny and the way they jive on TV just has to be a preview to how they are in real life. 

Oh well, a girl can dream, right? Let's be real, in this day and age, Mindy Kaling doesn't need a daddy to raise her baby. She's gonna be the best mama all on her own. LUCKY BABY.
