Actress Michelle Monaghan says her daughter Willow is talking up a storm these days – but not all of her newly acquired words are nice ones!
“She’s nearly three. She’s talking, yeah she’s talking a lot,” the 35-year-old actress said during a recent visit to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. “She’s saying a lot of sweet words, but there’s one word actually in particular that she’s saying quite a bit and it’s the s-word.”
Where did Willow pick up the naughty word? Michelle has her suspicions: “I realize my folks have been around quite a bit,” she admits, adding, “And I realize it’s kind of a family trait, this word. It’s something we’ve passed on from generation to generation. It’s a terrible, terrible thing.”
The Eagle Eye star, who is married to graphic artist Peter White, says she can’t get all that upset over Willow’s cursing, though.
“Honestly, there’s something kind of sweet about it because she uses it in the right context! It’s a terrible thing, but I am a good mom!”
