But you’re not Italian… are you?

My partner’s father asked me this question the first time he met me after discovering that my doctoral study focuses on Italian studies. I am a brunette with brown eyes and my partner’s family is fair with blue eyes. I should also mention this was not only the first time I met him, but I was also obviously pregnant with his son’s child.
