Mindy Lahiri has a new BFF and her name is…Kris Jenner. The Mindy Project star and creator Mindy Kaling took to Instagram to share a photo with the latest guest star.

"Mindy Lahiri & Kris Jenner: Best friends? @krisjenner #comingsoon #themindyproject," she captioned the above picture.

Jenner is just the latest guest star to board The Mindy Project's third season. Orange Is the New Black Emmy nominee Laverne Cox will guest star as Sheena, Tamra's (Xosha Roquemore) cousin who helps Mindy get her confidence back. Other guest stars this year include Julia Stiles, Rhea Perlman, Dan Hedaya, Chrissy Teigen, Lee Pace, Ana Gasteyer, Allison Tolman, Shonda Rhimes and Ken Burns.

"We have a guest star coming up this spring that I think is the single biggest, most exciting guest star we've ever had and I can't say who it is," Kaling recently spilled to E! Online. The star is so big, Kaling refused to even offer a hint. "No, I can't! But I'm really, really excited about it."

Perhaps the Kardashian mogul will be giving Mindy some mothering advice. The character just learned she was pregnant with Danny's (Chris Messina) baby. Jenner previously appeared as herself on The Real Husbands of Hollywood.

The Mindy Project airs Tuesdays, 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
