Actress Mindy Kaling is reportedly pregnant with her first child.

Multiple sources tell E! News "The Office" star is set to become a mother, although details about the baby's father or due date have not been revealed.

One insider claims the pregnancy was "an unexpected surprise."

Representatives for the 38-year-old have yet to comment on the reports.

"The Mindy Project" actress has made no secret of her desire to start a family. In 2015, she admitted she was considering having children "maybe imminently," despite her single status.

"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."

However, she insisted, "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."

As for marriage, Mindy is less enthused: "I admire (a good marriage) when I see it. I think it's a beautiful thing," she shared. "In my 20s, and especially in my teens, I completely fetishised a wedding. But I think much less about marriage now. It's less interesting to me."

Mindy previously dated her "The Office" co-star B.J. Novak for two years until 2007, and went on to date writer Benjamin Nugent from 2008 to 2012.

If the pregnancy news is true, it's great timing for Mindy - she recently completed filming on Disney's "A Wrinkle in Time"and heist movie "Ocean's Eight," and has just one confirmed project pending on her IMDB.com schedule - new TV comedy "Champions," which is still in pre-production.

The sixth and final season of her sitcom "The Mindy Project" is also set to air on streaming service Hulu this September.
