SHE IS SMART AND INDEPENDENT

Valentina is both hard-working and independent, like her parents. While the past year has been quite a struggle for everyone who had to study and work from home, Valentina rose above the challenge and focused on being productive.

According to the teen's mom, Valentina independently attended to all her school work online despite it being difficult, especially since she did not have friends to be with.

The teen's family currently resides in London but has been spending the past weeks in Greece. Salma previously shared photos from their trip on her Instagram profile.

SHE IS CREATIVE

Like her parents, Valentina has a creative side, which showed when she gave her mom a haircut in 2018. For her 11th birthday, the "Frida" star allowed Valentina to cut her hair at home.

Selma continued to praise her daughter for teaching her lessons no one could and bringing mounts of joy and happiness into their lives.

Selma captured their bonding moment in a video, featuring the actress in her marble bathtub and her daughter ready to cut while "Build Me Up Buttercup" played in the background.

SHE IS CLOSE TO SALMA

Although Salma had Valentina at the age of 41, having a huge age gap, the two share an incredible bond. The older age allowed the actress to gain experience and prepare for the world's most important job. She shared:

"I got to do a lot of things that were important to me first. Most crucially, I had her with the right person at a time when I could really focus on [motherhood]."

Salma is also a stepmother to her husband's kids, Francois and Mathilde, whom he shares with his ex-wife Dorothee Lepere, and Augustin James, whom he had with Linda Evangelista.
