Paula Patton is no longer single and ready to mingle. The actress is opening up about a new romance in her life. 

Patton gave Extra the scoop on the change in her relationship status and revealed that there is a new man who has her smitten. 

“I have a boyfriend now,” the Traffik actress told the entertainment outlet. “I haven’t called anybody a boyfriend. He’s my boyfriend!”

Patton, 42, said the relationship is still new and they have only been together for “a month.” While the romance is still fresh, she admits she’s betting on this one, because she just has a feeling.

“But when you know, you know,” said Patton. “I love him.”

Patton remained tightlipped about her new beau’s name, but she did share that he is a single dad and parenthood is one of the things they bonded over. 

“If you have a kid and you have a basketball game, look at the daddies… It’s kind of a suburban romance. He’s got kids, I got a kid,” Patton explained. “It’s one of those!”

The star and her ex-husband, Robin Thicke, welcomed their son Julian Fuego in April 2010 and although the couple divorced in 2015 after 10 years of marriage, the two have maintained a successful co-parenting relationship. 

“To live in the now, you have to forgive,” said Patton. “That was then, this is now. You don’t have to hold on to anything. You are not doing your children any service… Bring as much peace and harmony to their life as you can.”
