Cue the happy tears 😭 Mindy Kaling got emotional while talking about rumored beau B.J. Novak on the Today show on Wednesday, April 4. Hoda Kotb brought up Novak’s sweet tweet he shared last month celebrating the actress’ success during her appearance on the talk show and she started to get teary eyed.
“When I was coming up there was no one who looked like me on TV or film and that was such a nice thing that he remembered that,” Kaling told Hoda. “I was so moved by that. If you dream big, you can get whatever you want.”
Last month, B.J. shared a sweet message in honor of The Mindy Project star along with a photo of a bus stop movie poster featuring Kaling in Wrinkle in Time.
“When I met @mindykaling she lived in a small apartment on Fairfax Ave,” he shared. “This is what’s in front of that building today. Congrats Mindy and a future congrats to all those who see you in it and are inspired to do great things. @WrinkleinTime.”
The funnywoman, 38, responded at the time that she was “full crying” and rightfully so.
Kaling and Novak, who dated while filming The Office, have remained close since the NBC series ended in May 2013. They reignited romance rumors when they stepped out at the Oscars this past March together.
Mindy welcomed her daughter, Katherine, in December 2017 but has yet to reveal the identity of the child’s father.
