Paula Patton has a new boyfriend.

The ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol’ star is dating again following her divorce from Robin Thicke and whilst she hasn’t divulged much about the mystery man, she did reveal he is a single dad.

Speaking on Extra, she said: “I have a boyfriend now. I haven’t called anybody a boyfriend. He’s my boyfriend! When you know, you know. I love him ... 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. It’s one of those!”

Meanwhile, Paula previously revealed her eight-year-old son Julian is her most “valuable” possession.

She shared “Everything is probably inside of you, truth be told, but you probably don’t even know it ... That’s the surprise of life. You don’t know, until you find yourself in the situation. The older I get, the more I’m surprised with life. Things don’t end up the way you think they will. Unbelievable and unimaginable things do happen, and then you figure out if you’ll be able to step up to the plate or not. There’s no greater inspiration than that of your child.

“Until you’re actually in that situation, you don’t know. At the end of the day, you know you’re going to go to the ends of the earth for your child, period, no matter what. There’s nothing that matters more. In my own life, there’s no amount of success or money that’s more important than your child being healthy and happy. There’s nothing that can put a band-aid on that. There’s nothing more valuable to me.”
