She is also a mom to daughter Katherine Swati, who was born in 2017.

"My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it," she previously told The New York Times about keeping mum on her daughter's paternity.

Kaling announced that she had welcomed a son on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in October. "This is news to a lot of people. It’s true," she said at the time.

The unconventional family dynamic works just fine for Kaling, a source said. "Her life feels so full now," an insider told OK!. "She's getting little sleep with all the feedings, but she's so happy.

However, the insider added, "No one knows where she finds the energy." Kaling is balancing writing projects, parenthood and her daughter's virtual preschool, but the source insisted: "At the end of the day, Mindy’s so thankful that she’s got two incredible kids."

Fans have speculated that her children's father could be their godfather and her close friend, B.J. Novak. The pair reportedly dated on and off while writing and acting on The Office, but nothing has been confirmed.

"When I said, you know, 'B.J., if something happens to me, it's not like I have a husband, like you have to just take the kids,'" The Mindy Project star once joked. "And he's like 'Oh, my God, don't tempt me.'"
