Honor Marie, 15-Months-Old, Is BilingualSassy Smith
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren’s little cutie, 15-month-old Honor Marie is bilingual! Jessica wants her daughter to be fluent in both Spanish and English and she’s well on her way, even at a very young age.
Jess said, “I am a mother who shoves information down her throat, poor thing. I sing her songs about colors in Spanish and English when I’m cooking. Literally I integrate learning into everything I do. We’re into colors because I feel that’s something a 15-month-old can sort of identify.
“So now she kind of points to blue and says ‘azul’ and I say ‘Yes, azul, muy bien!’ It’s slow going but she’s sort of picking it up.”
Jessica adds, “She says gato for cat. Pato for duck, but dog is dog. She doesn’t say perro. She kind of flips back and forth. She’s very silly. She growls like a lion whenever I say ‘leon.'”
The 28-year-old actress wants her daughter to learn about as many cultures as possible and plans to take her to Africa next year.
“I’m actually really excited about going to Africa for the first time with my daughter and exposing her to a completely different culture and having her learn through life experiences. That’s the one thing she’s going to get that not a lot of children have the luxury of having: traveling and being exposed to world issues and cultures and food. I can’t wait.”
Yes, Honor is one lucky little girl!
