First dates can be worrisome, especially when you’re meeting someone’s famous mom on date number one. VH1 sat down with three interracial couples and got them to recall their first date encounters. According to Sekena, her bae Dex totally set her up and made their first date an unexpected family affair. Like meeting his mother, who happens to be a music icon, while their taking in a Broadway play.
“I would tell Dex I was into theatre and the arts, so he was like, ’Oh, we should go to a Broadway play [for our first date].’ I’ve never been to one before. So we ended up going and he got us really good seats and we saw Kinky Boots, but he didn’t tell me it was his mom’s show. He was keeping it under wraps until the very end of the show, until I saw a picture and I said, this woman (Cyndi Lauper) looks familiar. And he was like, ’Yeah, that’s my mom.'”
