Pop star Shakira and her husband Barcelona defender Gerard Piqué are teaching their 22-month-old son Milan seven different languages.
The 37-year-old star and her Spanish soccer ace boyfriend Gerrard Pique speak seven languages around their son so that he becomes multi-lingual, reported Contactmusic.
The 'Hips Don't Lie' hitmaker said the couple goes to great lengths to expose Milan to languages other than their native language Spanish.
"Any child can learn languages before they're three, we expose Milan to Spanish, Catalan, English, French, Germany, Russian and Chinese.
Babies have an innate thirst for knowledge and enjoying learning.
"Kids are able to comprehend more than we think, it's never too early to start teaching and exposing them to books even as newborns," she said.
Shakira is pregnant with her second child.
