Mindy Kaling is expecting her first child, according to multiple reports.

A source tells E! News the pregnancy was "an unexpected surprise" for the 38-year-old star of The Mindy Project

Little else is known about the actress and writer's baby on the way, and thus far she has remained quiet about the topic on social media, with her rep declining to comment to People. The Office alum dated her co-star B.J. Novak in the past, and was subsequently linked to writer Benjamin Nugent. 

"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," Kaling told Yahoo! Style in 2015. "I’m not cavalier about who I would have a kid with. But the thing I ask every parent that I really admire, the one comment they all have is that they wish they had kids earlier.”

Days before the pregnancy news broke, Kaling appeared at the D23 Expo in Anaheim Saturday, with her A Wrinkle In Time co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Storm Reid to debut the film's trailer. She went on to share this pic from the event on her Instagram account.

In addition to her personal news, Kaling has a lot on the go professionally. The Mindy Project is set to return for its sixth and final season this September on Hulu, and she also co-stars alongside Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna and Anne Hathaway in Ocean's 8, which shot earlier this year. 

E!'s source says her pregnancy will not influence production of any upcoming projects, which includes the NBC sitcom Champions, also starring Anders Holm, and Andy Favreau.
