When actress Paula Patton showed up to the opening night of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Las Vegas last year, wearing a gray baby doll dress, rumors spread that she was pregnant with her first child.
“It was a baby doll dress, and it was after the holidays. I probably gained a good 10-15 pounds, I don’t know, and suddenly after one picture, I was pregnant,” the Precious actress, 33, reveals to Ok!. “What are you going to do? It’s life. I wish it happened. That would’ve been better.”
Paula first learned about the baby rumors while on vacation last summer.
“We went to Bora Bora for a vacation, and Robin got a text from (director) Hype Williams, and it said, ‘Congratulations…’ He said, ‘People kinda think you’re pregnant.'”
“It was heartbreaking because, after everything – all the work I’d done – that was all people knew me for”, Paula said to Giant magazine recently.
Now that Paula and her husband Robin Thicke are actually expecting, perhaps those baby rumors can now be put to rest.
