Mindy Kaling e BJ Novak hanno appena presentato un premio insieme agli Emmy del 2022 e i fan non potrebbero essere più entusiasti. I due comici hanno a lungo suscitato voci sulla relazione anche dopo aver affermato di essere solo amici. Ad essere onesti, si sono frequentati a intermittenza quando entrambi recitavano in “The Office”, ma quella relazione in seguito si è trasformata in qualcosa di platonico. “Non è la cosa che la gente a volte pensa che sia”, ha detto Kaling alla CBS Sunday Morning nel 2019. “Ma ora fa davvero parte della mia famiglia, il che è fantastico. Anche se questa è una caratterizzazione meno sexy della nostra relazione, io penso che sia più profondo e più vicino”.
With the two being so close, fans can't help but wonder if something else had happened between the two. More specifically, they can't help but speculate if Novak is the father of Kaling's two children, and the stars' Emmys appearance has fans guessing all over again.
Rumors that B.J. Novak fathered Mindy Kaling's kids are making rounds again
Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak seem to be aware that people are still wishing for them to be together, so they made sure to address the complex nature of their relationship in their bit at the 2022 Emmys. "To all the nominees, we want to say congratulations, you lazy sons of b****es. How are you getting away with this? We came out doing network sitcoms, 22 shows a year," Kaling quipped (per People), to which Novak added, "It would take up your whole life." That prompted Kaling to squeeze in the joke, "You had no choice but to form insanely complicated relationships with your co-stars." Ha!
Fans then took to Twitter to speculate once again, convincing themselves that maybe Novak is the father of Kaling's kids after all. "BJ IS NEVER BEATING THE MINDY BABY DADDY ALLEGATIONS," one fan tweeted. "mindy kaling and bj novak talking about having complicated relationships with costars after walking out to the song "baby love"...he's gotta be her baby daddy i'm fully convinced," quipped another. "If I had one wish from a genie it would be confirmation that BJ Novak is the father of Mindy Kalings kids," joked another fan.
Unfortunately for the Mindy-B.J. truthers, Kaling has repeatedly denied those rumors. "It doesn't bother me," the comedian told Marie Claire. "He's the godparent to both my kids — and they have such a great relationship — and so far [the rumors haven't] affected my happiness at all, it hasn't affected my kids or B.J."
