Fans were pleasantly surprised when news broke July 17 that Kaling is expecting her first child.

“Being a mom is something she’s always talked about, but never spoke of a set plan or anything in terms of a timeline of when she wanted it to happen,” an insider told PEOPLE.

Kaling has yet to discuss the pregnancy in public but recently moved to a bigger, family-friendly Los Angeles house with an expansive backyard.

A source has said the actress “just started telling her friends that she’s pregnant, but she’s not telling anyone — not even close friends — who the father is.”

The Hulu star has called being pregnant “a sacred thing,” but told PEOPLE in 2015 that she’d stopped looking at getting married and having a child as a goal: “I have to stop making lists and hopes for myself because if they don’t happen, then I feel I haven’t achieved my full potential.”

At that time, Kaling also said she felt happiest when she was “able to sleep for eight or nine hours after having, like, two Moscow mules.”

But following a moment of reflection, The Office alum revised her answer. “I don’t have children,” she said. “Maybe looking into your child’s eyes is a better answer.”
