The world has been gawking at Tika Sumpter's beauty moreso now than ever that she is with child. However, it wasn't until recently that the internet connected the dots on who the father of the actress's unborn child is.

Connecting the dots in a series of social media posts, it's confirmed that the actress is having a child with her Haves and Have Nots co-star Nick James, and while this is a beautiful moment for them both, social media is up in arms because Nick is white.

Nick plays Officer Justin on the soap opera-esque OWN drama. He and Tika have reportedly been keeping their relationship under the radar for some time now.

While the Southside With You actress continues to be celebrated for her flawless pregnancy style and glow, she's recently been slammed for choosing a white man to have a baby with. Take a look at Twitter's harsh comments below:
