Mindy Kaling is about to take on a role with a longer commitment than even The Office had. As reported by E! News, the actress, comedian and author is officially pregnant with her first child.

An insider source told E! News that the announcement was "an unexpected surprise" for Kaling, but her production schedules for current projects will not be changed. In a previous interview with Yahoo! Style, she stated that "I think I've decided that unlike everything else in my life, I'm going to be fast and loose about kids," so her casual but steady attitude is to be expected.

From the looks of her fans' reactions on Twitter, they have every faith that she will be an excellent mother, and plenty of excitement to share. (Though they haven't forgotten that episode in The Office when Kelly tricked Ryan into thinking she was pregnant just for the attention...)
