Kandice-she is bi-racial I forgot with what. But she views herself as African American.

Great dress! So fun and flattering.

and i’m tickled by the middle name “Fuego” as well.
it’s borderline cheezville, but i think it’s fun and sounds strong. Maybe when little Julian gets older he can work it into some kind of pick-up line😉

Lady on

Wow, Paula looks stunning! Pregnancy really suits her, little Julian sure is going to be a gorgeous little guy!

m-dot on

She looks amazing!!

Paula Patton is not biracial she’s African American. Anyway fuego kind of has a bad meaning around here a lot of people use it to say someone has an std.

Tatyana on

Fuego isn’t that bad. It means fire in Spanish.🙂

Kim on

Paula Patton’s mother is Black and her father is Black/ White biracial.Apparently her paternal grandmother is White. She identifies as Black .
