Paula Patton & Robin Thicke

High school sweethearts Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are having their first child as confirmed by their publicist Thursday (Oct 22).

Paula had recently revealed to Giant Magazine that she had stopped taking birth control over the past few months in hopes that she would get pregnant. Patton said she been on the pill since she and Robin tied the knot back in 2005.

At the 2009 Angel Ball, Robin said that he was lucky to be married to a woman like Paula.

A gushing Robin Thicke tells UsMagazine.com, “She could make a marriage work with a chair. She’s an incredible woman, and she’s very beautiful, so I’m just lucky to be with her.”

Congratulations to Paula and Robin on their new baby! Enjoy these pictures of the couple at the 2009 Angel Ball this past Tuesday (Oct 20) at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.
