As fans of Mindy Kaling await the release of the sixth and last season of “The Mindy Project,” a different piece of news speculating about the Indian American actress’ new role is currently keeping them busy.

Multiple sources told E! News that the “A Wrinkle in Time” actress is currently pregnant with her first child.

The future arrival for the 38-year-old actress, sources told the entertainment outlet, was “an unexpected surprise” but that there will not be any changes made to production schedules for her upcoming projects.

Though there are no further details at this time, one fact stands true and that is: Kaling’s wish to embrace motherhood some day.

“I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids,” Kaling told Yahoo! Style in September 2015. “I’m going to not actively plan, but if it happens, it would happen.”

The actress, who, according to E! News, previously dated Benjamin Nugent from 2008-2012 and her “Office” co-star B.J. Novak from 2005-2007, added: “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.”
