Paula Patton may be seven-months pregnant, but that didn't stop her from hitting up the Oscars and a few parties afterward.

The Precious actress, 34, who is due to have a baby boy with husband Robin Thicke this May, donned a red hot Carolina Herrera gown to Sunday night's show.

"We made sure to find something to accommodate [my bump]," Patton explained of her gown to USA Today. "It just fits and works."

Thicke, 32, agreed. "You look beautiful, you look perfect," he told her. "You're the hottest baby mama around."

As the evening wore on, Patton (who was also wearing 25-carat diamond earrings by Martin Katz) admitted she was losing her stamina.

"The shoes hurt, but that's how it goes!" she told at the Governor's Ball in Hollywood.

"We're on a bit of a short fuse tonight," she added, gesturing to her belly. "I'm hungry and I need to sit down!"

Patton told Us the best moment of the night for her "was Mo'Nique winning" the best supporting actress award for Precious.

"I just want to give her a hug! I haven't seen her yet!" she added. "I'm so happy for her. It's great!"
