Tyra Banks Reveals Her 3-Year-Old Son York Already Speaks 4 Languages

Television personality, Tyra Banks' 3-year-old son, could arguably be the smartest child of his age. This assumption follows his mother's revelation that he already speaks four languages. 

Many people in the world do their best to learn a second language different from their mother tongue, but at only three-years-old, Tyra Banks' son, York, already speaks four languages.

She added that he kept asking her to stay on his bed and play at 3 am, and she felt like telling him that she needed to go to her bed, but then, she realized something. Tyra said:

"I am going to be crying when he is eight, and he is going to say, mama, get out of my bed, so I am like let me cherish this moment."

When asked about York's smartness and the number of languages he speaks, the proud mom revealed that her son speaks four languages.

"He speaks some Norwegian, he speaks some Spanish, he speaks English, but now he is adding a little French."

She then went on to joke about not understanding some of York's words. 

Banks was asked if she felt this was her best version, and replied by saying that she feels it is the "most free" version of herself.

I have never been one to be very excited about cooking. I put all of my energy into my work and to succeeding, so instead of cooking, I eat at restaurants all the time, order in, or defrost frozen food in my microwave. That all changed the day my son was born. I do not want him to grow up thinking that cooking is what happens only in fancy or fast food restaurants. I do not want the only cooking he witnesses to be when he turns on his television and sees famous chefs create masterpieces. I want to be his chef. I want him to go to college and miss his MOMMY'S masterpieces. I want all of his friends to be fighting to come to his house to sample his mother's culinary creations. So, I did something about it. I enrolled in ad intensive Boot Camp at @theculinaryinstituteofamerica in St. Helena and I have to say, it changed my life. Come back today to experience my culinary journey in pictures...

"My son is three and a half years old, and I didn't want him growing up thinking food was only in fancy restaurants, fast food restaurants, or just an app. I wanted to be my son's chef – and I did something about it," she said.

The something Tyra did was to enroll in the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California, which she tagged as a serious boot camp.
