Mindy Kaling’s Baby Daddy Is None of Our Business

Posted by Jeanne on July 19, 2017

By now, you’ve probably seen the reports – Mindy Kaling is (possibly) pregnant. While the actress hasn’t confirmed the news, she hasn’t denied the rumors either. Aside from the usual excitement that comes with a new celebrity baby bump watch, there is other chatter that is less than cool.

People are wondering who the father is. Kaling is 39 years old. The pregnancy is, reportedly, an “unexpected surprise,” which is not too different from how half of the population came into existence. The things that sets this situation apart, however, is fame.

Kaling has to navigate uncharted territory in front of a camera as the public tries to peer into her private life. Websites have made a laundry list of all the guys she’s dated over the years in an attempt to narrow down the man who fertilized her egg and, really, when you think of it that way, we really don’t need that information.

Not too long ago, Kaling spoke to Yahoo Style and said, ”I think I’ve decided that unlike everything else in my life, I’m going to be fast and loose about kids. 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.”

It sounds like she doesn’t need our help or attention so, until she’s ready to share, we should just let her enjoy this personal experience and focus on our own lives.
