They may share a first name, but Mindy Kaling and her onscreen counterpart, Mindy Lahiri, are not one and the same.
"I am dating," Kaling, 35, revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on Wednesday's Ellen DeGeneres Show. "But one of the challenges I have noticed is that I'm not very much like my character, who is very wild, and I think that when I go on dates there's this expectation that I'm going to have, like, 11 martinis and pass out and spend the night really soon."

Creator/leading lady Mindy Kaling shared a clip from the show on Instagram, explaining it ended up on the cutting room floor "because we never got through it."

Tuesday's episode of The Mindy Project ended with a completely unexpected reveal: Dr. Mindy Lahiri (Mindy Kaling) is pregnant!
Though Mindy's boyfriend Danny Castellano (Chris Messina) won't find out until the Feb. 10 episode – and will likely be in as much disbelief as Mindy fans on Twitter – we have plenty of time to consider why this game-changing plot development could actually be a good move for the series.
In fact, Kaling told EW that "pregnant Mindy is the most fun version of her yet." Here are six reasons we think she's right.
