Blood Diamond star Djimon Hounsou is teaching his baby son French as he learns to talk - because he wants the boy to be bilingual.
The Benin native admits 23-month-old Kenzo, his first child with model/fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons, is a fast learner and is already picking up words in both English and Hounsou's native French.
He tells Us Weekly magazine, "It's fascinating to see him speak French with me and English with (his) mum. He mimics anything we say."
And Kenzo isn't the only one benefiting from Hounsou's language lessons - Lee Simmons' daughters Ming, 11, and Aoki, eight, from her marriage to hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, are also keen to learn.
Hounsou adds, "I only speak French to the kids in the house. They are like sponges. They take in everything."
