‘Precious’ star Paula Patton, who is expecting a son with her R&B singer husband Robin Thicke in May, has been looking amazing on the red carpet this awards season, baby bump and all, so it’s appropriate that she is appearing on the March cover of Women’s Health looking fit and fabulous. Inside the mag, Patton joked about her husband’s “super sperm,” which she said contributed to getting her pregnant soon after she got off birth control. “He’s so proud of himself,” she said. “It’s ridiculous.” She also spoke about some of her insecurities and problems other people have had with her biracial identity.
?I find [the term biracial] offensive. It?s a way for people to separate themselves from African-Americans?.a way of saying ?I?m better than that,?? says Paula, who is expecting her first son with crooner hubby Robin Thicke this spring. ?I?m black because that?s the way the world sees me. People aren?t calling Barack Obama biracial. Most people think there?s a black president?.People judged me because I was light-skinned. [They’d assume] I didn?t want to be part of the black race,? she says.
But all of those problems melt away when she’s with Robin. “He makes me feel beautiful,” she said.
