It seems that Adriana Lima's 21-month-old daughter, Valentina, wasn't just blessed with good genes from a hot mom. She also knows how to speak three languages: Serbian, Portuguese, and English. And just so that this story is cute instead of depressing—since we certainly can't speak Serbian—she prefers to speak to the family dog in English. "Lima said her daughter knows Serbian and Portuguese, but still talks to their Maltese in English, saying things like 'come now' to get the puppy to follow her around." [NYP]
