New Jersey Senator Cory Booker isn’t the father of Mindy Kaling’s unborn baby, despite a completely speculative and inaccurate new report. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we can exclusively set the record straight.

As Gossip Cop reported, the news emerged in July that Kaling is pregnant with her first child, but the comedic actress isn’t revealing the dad’s identity. Back in March, Kaling and Booker had a somewhat flirty, yet humorous exchange on Twitter about setting up a date. But the senator later clarified in an interview with Vanity Fair, “I want to sort of take the romantic aspect out of it and talk more about how she’s amazing.” It’s unclear if the pair ever actually went out together.

Months later, MediaTakeOut is now speculating that Booker is the father of the actress’s soon-to-be-born child. The untrustworthy blog writes, “According to the streets, people are whispering that Mindy’s baby daddy might by US Senator Cory Booker.” Of course, “the streets” isn’t the most reliable of sources. Still, the webloid goes on to reference the aforementioned Twitter exchange as so-called “proof that the two were dating.”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who laughed off the bogus speculation that Booker impregnated the TV star. Our source couldn’t comment on the true identity of the father, but we were assured it isn’t the New Jersey politician. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a phony report regarding the actress’s pregnancy.

Gossip Cop recently busted OK! for falsely claiming Kaling was acting “difficult” on the set of her Hulu series “The Mindy Project” because pregnancy was making her irritable. However, we were exclusively told the actress hadn’t become ill-tempered at work and the vibe on set of the comedy series remained upbeat. This latest speculation surrounding the father of Kaling’s baby is similarly false.
