How Many Languages Can Salma Hayek's Daughter Speak?

At just 2 1/2 years old Salma Hayek’s daughter knows more than I do when it comes to languages. Sigh.

Valentina Paloma Pinault speaks 3 languages!  One, dos, trois. Her dad, François-Henri Pinault says, “She’s [speaking] fluently — English, Spanish and French. She can have a conversation.”

Amazing! I took French for 10 years and have retained the ability to say, loosely translated, “My grandmother likes comedy movies.” Needless to say, I’m impressed.

Valentina is so skilled she’s even teaching Salma.  François-Henri continues: “She’s teaching French to her mother.”

Salma admits though that she likes the quieter moments: “I love it when she wakes up, even if it’s from a nap.  She’s still confused and a still little bit sleepy before she goes full on with the energy!”
