    Mindy Kaling Revealed That B.J. Novak Is Her Daughter's Godfather

    "But the truth is that B.J. is so much more like family now than a platonic friend."

    By now you probably know that Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak have been super close friends since their Office days.

    So close, in fact, that rumors have been swirling for years that they were ~more than friends~.

    Well, in a new interview with Good Housekeeping, Mindy Kaling addressed the rumors and opened up about her long-time friendship with her former co-star.

    Mindy said, "If I was on the outside looking at it, I would think the same thing. But the truth is that B.J. is so much more like family now than a platonic friend."

    "He’s the godfather to my daughter; he comes over like once a week. Sometimes he’ll come over just to hang out with her.”

    She coninued, “In the When Harry Met Sally version of platonic friends, I too think that’s strange. But when you’ve known someone for as long as I’ve known him — the time that we met each other, which was like 24. Now, we’re both almost 40."

    "It’s such a long time that he truly is just a part of my family.”
