Mindy Kaling, who turns 43 on June 24, 2022, has achieved huge success in Hollywood. The actress’ love life isn’t as vibrant as her career, but she’s found someone she has a special bond with.
Mindy Kaling continues to thrive in the spotlight with her excellent acting skills and her power to make people laugh. She is not only an expert in comedy, but she is also a brilliant writer.
Along with being known for her versatile creativity, Kaling rose to prominence on the hit sitcom “The Office,” which aired from 2009 to 2013. The sitcom brought her into contact with actor BJ Novak, with whom she shares a privileged relationship.

MINDY KALING AND BJ NOVAK ARE THEY TOGETHER? ALL ABOUT THEIR SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP
Kaling and Novak met in 2004 when they were both 24 while filming and writing “The Office.” She portrayed the character of Kelly Kapoor while Novak played Ryan Howard.
Novak and the Indian-American actress characters shared a recurring romance. They starred alongside actors Steve Carell and Amy Ryan.
Kaling’s on-screen romance with Novak seemed to spill over into her personal life. Despite how endearing the duo’s connection is, their relationship has baffled fans. Novak said of his confusing relationship with his co-star:
“We never really dated, we never really dated. We didn’t know. Nobody knew. It doesn’t get along.”
The “Never Have I Ever” producer, for her part, described her relationship with Novak as “weird as hell.” The 42-year-old comedian said he was neither her boyfriend nor her best friend.
Fans, however, have suggested that Novak may be the father of Kaling’s children.
Although Kaling previously said she had an unspecified relationship with Novak, she later revealed on “The Howard Stern Show” in 2014 that Novak had “broken up” with her several years ago.
She added that she felt more sad than angry about their separation. When host Howard Stern asked her if she wanted to marry Novak, she replied, “At the time? Yeah. I was 24. For the record, if someone asked me to marry him, I would have said yes.”
Although Kaling and Novak’s true status remains unclear, fans have admired the acting duo for their enduring friendship. The two actors also supported each other.
In June 2016, the dynamic duo honored National Best Friends Day with a sweet selfie. They also walked the 2018 Oscars red carpet together.
FANS SPECULATE BJ NOVAK IS THE FATHER OF MINDY KALING’S CHILDREN: WHAT DO WE KNOW?
Kaling is the mother of two children: Katherine, 4, born in 2017, and Spencer, 1, born in 2020. The famous actress has never revealed the identity of the father of her children.
Fans, however, have suggested that Novak may be the father of Kaling’s children. But, the mother-of-two has denied the rumours, saying her co-star is Katherine’s godfather and has a close relationship with her daughter.
