You know that Mindy Kaling is the mother to two children, Katherine and Spencer.
You might also know that former The Office costar BJ Novak — who dated Kaling on and off throughout the show’s run — is the godfather to Katherine and Spencer.
Now, if you’re the type who spends a decent amount of time on the internet (who isn’t?), you might have come across the occasional speculation that BJ is actually the father to Mindy’s two children.
Mindy’s not previously addressed the rumors, but she finally discussed them in a recent interview with Marie Claire.
“It doesn’t bother me,” she when asked about how the speculation makes her feel.
“He’s the godparent to both my kids — and they have such a great relationship — and so far [the speculation hasn’t] affected my happiness at all, it hasn’t affected my kids or BJ,” she said.
“If that’s what is going to be titillating to people, I’ll take it.”
This isn’t the first time Mindy’s addressed the paternity of her children, which she has chosen not to reveal publicly to date.
Back in 2019, the New York Times asked her about how she arrived at the decision to keep the identity of Katherine’s father private.
“My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,” she said.
