With the cat now out of the bag, singer Robin Thicke and his wife Paula Patton are more than ready to celebrate the impending arrival of their first child.

However, the announcement comes a year and a half after reports swirled that the couple were to be parents, rumors that the couple never confirmed — for good reason, the actress says.

“It was a baby doll dress and it was after the holidays,” Paula explains to OK!

“I probably gained 10-15 pounds, I don’t know, and suddenly after one picture, I was pregnant. What are you going to do? It’s life. I wish it happened. That would’ve been better.”

In the upcoming months of her pregnancy, the actress can rest assured that Robin will be quite the doting dad-to-be!

“He brings me flowers every time he comes to the set,” the Precious star shares.

“He can be so thoughtful. He thinks about me, he cares about me, he’s always making sure that I’m in a good place.”

Joking that Paula “could make a marriage work with a chair,” Robin has equally good things to say about the mama-to-be.
