Mindy Kaling is not deterred by rumors that her ex-boyfriend BJ Novak is the father of her two children.

“It doesn’t bother me,” 43-year-old “Mindy Project” said in an interview with Marie Claire published Tuesday.

“He is the godparent to both of my children – and they have such a great relationship – and until now” [the speculation hasn’t] didn’t affect my happiness at all, it didn’t affect my kids or BJ,” she explained.

“If that’s what excites people, I’ll take it.”

The actress welcomed daughter Katherine (4) and son Spencer (1) in 2017 and 2020 respectively.

“I want them to be old enough to talk to me about it and [tell me] how they want me to talk about it,” the Emmy nominee told the magazine.

“I am the only parent my children have,” she continued. “I think I’m making the mistake on the side of being super careful so that there [are] fewer things they could potentially be upset about over time.”

As for talking to them about her fame, Kaling has yet to broach the subject.

“My hope is that [Katherine] will be 12 or 13 and kids will be talking about [‘The Office’] at school, and then she wants to look at it and I can show it to her,” said the Tony winner.

“This reminds me that I should probably have some sort of conversation off the top of my head to talk to her about” [it]’, she added, joking that she ‘made it’ without making conscious parenting decisions.

Kaling encouraged young women to freeze their eggs.

“I wish every 19-year-old girl came home from college and that the gift — instead of buying them jewelry or a vacation or whatever — is that their parents would take them to freeze their eggs,” he said. they. “They could do that one day and have all these eggs for them, for their future.”

The creator of “Never Have I Ever” threw herself into People in 2018 about the benefits of having children “a little later” in her career.

“I can fit my daughter into my job,” she said at the time. “It’s a luxury most American women don’t have.

“I can say, ‘Hey, I want a small area where I can let my daughter play, because I want to check on her at work.’ That is probably the biggest advantage of my life.”
