While walking the red carpet at Sunday’s Academy Awards, Paula Patton kept one hand on her belly, noting that the son she expects in May will soon steal the show for her and husband Robin Thicke.

“I will stare at him all day long,” the 34-year-old actress promises.

Donning an orange, off-the-shoulder gown by Carolina Herrera, Paula says that the dress “just fits and works,” adding, “we made sure to find something that would accommodate the fit.”

Her choice garnered two thumbs up from Robin, who raved,

“Honestly, I think you look beautiful, you look perfect. You’re the hottest baby mama around.”

Baby boy — to be named Julian Fuego — will be the first child for the couple, who married in 2005.
