They both hail from the Boston suburbs.
And Mindy Kaling was spotted sitting courtside with her longtime pal BJ Novak as they supported their home team at the city’s TD Garden on Wednesday.
The 43-year-old Mindy Project creator and her ex sat courtside to watch the Boston Celtics face off against the Dallas Mavericks.
Mindy could be spotted locked in enthusiastic conversation with BJ while he watched rapt as the game unfolded in front of him.
Her outing with her pal came after she took her children Katherine, four, and Spencer, two, to enjoy some of the delights of the city during the day.
The Office alum brought her little tykes to an interactive children’s science center called the Discovery Museum and posted some of their escapades to Instagram.
‘Had the most fun with my kids in the incredible @discoveryacton!’ she plugged. ‘It’s the best indoor and outdoor play outside of Boston! The staff is so knowledgeable and kind. Please check it out with your kids, but only if you love discovery??’
Back when she was writing and acting on The Office early in her career she became romantically involved with BJ, who worked with her on the program.
However for the past several years they have just been close pals and he serves as godfather to both of her children.
They frequently accompany each other to events as well, including when he was her date to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party this March.
Mindy has been famously tight-lipped about her love life and has not even publicly named the father of either of her two children.
She gave birth to her first child Katherine in 2017 and then welcomed her son Spencer into the world in September 2020.
Mindy did not even announce her second pregnancy until she had already delivered Spencer and credited the coronavirus lockdowns with helping her keep her secret.
‘I mean, clearly, I was not going anywhere, like everybody else, so nobody found me out. So that was kind of easy,’ she told Elle.
‘My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,’ she said.
