Jessica Alba's Bilingual Daughter

Jessica Alba's 15-month-old daughter is bilingual.

The stunning actress - who is of Mexican descent - is keen for little Honor to be able to speak both Spanish and English and is already educating her.

She said: "I am a mother who shoves information down her throat, poor thing. I sing her songs about colours in Spanish and English when I'm cooking. Literally I integrate learning into everything I do. We're into colours 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.

"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."

Jessica - who is married to Cash Warren - also wants her daughter to learn all about other cultures in the world and is planning on taking her to Africa next year.

She told People magazine: "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 one thing she's going to get that not a lot of children have the luxury of having: travelling and being exposed to world issues and cultures and food. I can't wait."
